New to me 55 gallon setup

As you can see from the first picture this is the 55 gallon tank I got (quite a steal actuall) Picked up everything in this pic minus the stand, but I was able to create my own stand with minimal work. 55 gallon tank, hoods/lights, heater, filter, all the decor, gravel and a few community fish for 100 bucks. Second picture is the tank in it's new home with me testing the stability of the stand I made, and the last picture is the tank as it stands right now. I want to add some more live plants to it a few more cory cats and some ghost shrimp. All in all it was a steal that I couldn't pass up.

Thank you. My Fiance and I like things unique, so hence the different look to the tank. I'll try to add some more pictures I took the other night of the "residents" of the tank lol

Gouramis, cory cats, platys, mollys, an angel fish, black neon tetras and a few of the survivors that came with the tank. It's all community fish. Glad you like it. My next step is converting it to sand instead of gravel.
