Ur leaving out a major factor. Plants fight a chemical war with algae much as ur body does to parasites and infections. Algae is an infection to plants therefor they release chemicals that inhibit growth of algae. Ina closed system it protects the tank. In open moving bodies of water. It just protects the individual plant. Unhealthy plants are unable to protect themselves if they are having trouble growing. This is why healthy plants usually mean a clean tank
