Plants can only use all this if it is balanced; we term it the limiting factor, which should always be light (to avoid algae issues) but reducing the light means there is then no need for the nutrients in such large amounts relatively speaking.
Some swords wold suit the discus, I mentioned some previously in this thread. Discus and angels occur in much the same type of habitat. But the two should never be combined in the same aquarium.
