Algae are more capable of using carbonates in the water as a carbon source. Your plants can only use so much of the light with limited CO2, the rest is just "feeding" the algae.

What's going to be your source of carbonated water? Will it be store bought bottles/cans like Amano first used? Isn't that going to be comparatively more expensive?

You could also try sticking peat in your filter to soften the water, although that may also bring your pH down below what you'd like.
