Hey man,

That's a shame that you are re-thinking the discus. They do require a warmer temp, but I find that they are such an amazing centerpiece compared to plants. But if you say your focus is...

Sharkbait's Planted Discus Tank

So here it is. Finally.

It's been a long journey so far - this crazy hobby that I've taken on. I started when I was a kid with a 20 gallon tank. My parents filled it full of cheap fish from a...

I fill straight from the tap; no worries here - but I'm not on well water. I don't know much about that, I'm afraid.

You should be fine with Domestics either way.

Best way to rid tank of particulates?

After the water change, the water did clear up some, but it still has a slight haze to it.

I think it might be a combination of too much iron, and possibly overfeeding the fish.

Tap PH is 7.0 (don't have other params at the moment)
I dose 1 tsp of KN03, 1/8 tsp of K2P04, and 2 caps of the liquids (which I don't have measurements on me) on the required days

The tank won't look exactly the way you want it right away - that's the whole point of growing plants. The plants will fill out and make your scape more richer, more complete.
