55 Gallon Planted - Block134

I have been reading these forums for a while now and have finally decided to start a journal of my tank so others can see what I have and offer any advice that they might have As of right now my tank has been set up for about two and a half years

My basic stats are:
55 Gallon tank
Saf-T-Sorb capping generic organic potting soil
Eheim 2217 Filter
Injected CO2 with a Green Leaf inline atomic diffuser. (working on getting a Cerges reactor to hopefully reduce bubbles in the tank)
Fluval Plant 2.0 Light
PPS fertilizer using the recommended dosing from GLA (working at getting my amounts right to keep the plants happy)
Jebao Programmable Auto Dosing Pump DP-4 (not set up yet)

Water Parameters:
I will hopefully get those numbers later tonight

Fish: A little bit of everything
Neon Tetras
Black Neon Tetras
2x Bolivian ram
2x Nerite Snails that I know of
2x Clown Plecostomus
2x Amano Shrimp
3x Flying Foxes
6x Panda Cory's
3x Rainbowfish
1x unidentified (flying fox type)

Plants (feel free to help identify these)
2x Madagascar Lace
Corkscrew Val
Misc Unknown

This a current picture of the tank. I am going to go through my old pictures and see if I have some from when it was first set up.

Just starting out
