55 gallon

This is my 55 gallon planted tank. It is moderate lighting without co2. The pics are old as the angels and bolivians are in the 125. The shark is now in my 100 gallon and he is about 9 inches long (only 6 inches in the pic). The tank now has guppies, ember tetras, and cherry shrimp in it. I will get some updated ones soon.

Please feel free to ask me any questions.

Awesome tank, love the angels. I hope mine get that pretty when they grow up. Are all of those live plants?
