I'll try an answer to the original question: "I am wondering if it might be better to keep the hardness lower for moorii or not."
Maintaining color pattern in fish is a neuroendocrine mechanism controlled. The color change is also the first symptom of a disease. Fish do not "consume" extra energy trying to maintain the typical color.
So, keeping proper and characteristic hardness of the lake in our tanks is necessary only for wild, and recently caught fish, which are in the process of adaptation or acclimation to artificial conditions.
Fish will adapt over time to the hardness of tap water...and I don't think that the hardness exerts a significant influence upon the body color after several years of stocking.
