Okay, so making a better CO2 reactor should help.  Maybe what I have isn't
BBA?  Anyone have a good picture of it to compare with?  (It is BBA from the
descriptions I read on The Krib, but a picture is worth...)

So, if it turns out my NO3 is really low, (<3-4?), adding some should help?
I will certainly get the SAEs as soon as aquariumfish.net resumes shipping.

Right now, algae control might have to move to the lower end of the priority
list though -- last night I found that my A. aggasizzi had spawned on the
leaf of one of the aforementioned "amazon trees" I was going to remove!
Both the male and female are viciously guarding their clutch from the other
fish in the tank.  My plan is to allow the eggs to hatch and then remove
some of the fry into a separate tank.

Thanks again, Tom, for all your help.
