Complete novice 15 gallon

I started this tank before I really read anything about keeping a planted tank, all I knew was that I wanted plants "because they are good"
Its a small scale guppy and shrimp breeding tank, the guppies are donated to a LFS and I sell the shrimp myself. Its been up and running since mid august, seeded with the rocks, filter and decorations from an old 30 litre tank. so shows this is tracking the starting point, to how its looking right now.

I have no idea what the large plant in the centre is, as it was donated by a friend, all I know its its quite a popular snack with the guppies.

I don't use Co2 as I have no space to run it, and Im only just starting to look into fertilisers. Has anyone got any advice as to how to get this looking really good, or just comments on what Im doing right/wrong.

I know there are a few other fish (minnow, a platty, black skirt) but I am providing them a temporary home for a friend that is the process of moving house
