Sorry, but nothing has been shown to reliably eat healthy BBA. Ramshorn snails will only ignore it.

I'm convinced no one reads that email. You have to call them, but honestly, I wouldn't expect much. I had a couple issues with leaky parts and they refused to warranty either one.

It's tough to integrate discus as part of a typical nature aquarium, but those fish are drop dead gorgeous. Keep 'em hot and feed em' a lot.

Unless you're going with a very open aquascape like an iwagumi, I would suggest a lot more flow. Given you experience with reef tanks, I'm sure you're familiar with Vortech or other propeller pumps.

That's what it is to you, but to just about everyone, it's still just rocks in a fish tank. Interpreting a difference of opinion or lack of background knowledge as disrespectful isn't fair, IMO.
