Why is that?
Isn't the best way to take care of a problem, the natural way?
Idealy If you could have your tank stocked in such a way that all the livestock would take care of typical problems, Wouldn't that be how the real ocean works?
IE: Cleaner shrimp for ich, Emerald Crab for Bubble Algae, Pepermint Shrimp/Long Nose Butterfly For Aptasia, 6 line wrasse for worms, etc...
It certainly seams better than adding chemical to rid of a problem, and unlike manual and chemical removal, having livestock that feeds on your infestations, will be an on going solution that will prevent the 'problem' from becoming an infestation in the first place..
Just My thoughts...
