I have plants that are showing some brown spots on them... should I be
pulling out plants to clean them as described above? Somehow, that doesn't
make sense to me... or, as suggested to me earlier in another post.. should
I buy a fish that will specifically eat this crap? :)

I have Chinese Algae eaters (2 actually) and 3 cory cats for bottom feeders
and I know they won't help... 

I am a complete newbie at plants! ACK!  I know nothing about trimming,
landscaping them, cleaning them... gosh, just when you think you know a lot
about aquariums, you find out you know nothing!  heheh.. that's what I get
for diving into a WHOLE new arena... I thought fish were tough!
