I have a planted discus tank and I keep my temps at 82-83 degrees. I've added shrimp, but they disappear over time and I think they are slowly being cooked at this higher temp. Instead, I stock heavily with Oto's for algae control and I have a small school of cory's to take care of leftovers.
I used SAE's, but had to catch them as they got big fast and stopped eating algae in favor of fish food. Since they've been removed, I've noticed that nibble marks in my plants have gone away. If you do want SAE's though, Keller Farms had some (including my 3 giants now) when I was there a few weeks ago.
