Smile Hi there, 55 Gal Tank [picture heavy]

I'm new here, so HELLO.
I don't have plants right now, maybe you guys can help me figure out which would be best suited for my collection of fish.

Here are photos of my 55gallon tank. It may seem overstocked, because it is winter, half of these fish go into an ornamental pond during the rest of the year. Also, I have a powerful below cabinet filter, plus a small submerged filter, and waiting on my two air stones to arrive any day now to help through the winter.

I recently changed the layout. The blue one is the new one compared to previous set up..

Here are my fish.

Black Bullheads - They are 6-8 inches long. Active & Buddies

Featherfin Syno Catfish - About 5.5 inches long. Active & Cute

Spotted Talking Catfish - About 6 inches long. Grumpy & Shy.

Green Sunfish - About 6 inches long. Active & Friendly(eats from hands)

Koi(3), Shubunkins(3), & Comet Gold(1) - Ranging 3.5-6 inches long. Community fish, friendly.

Pleco - About 11in long. Active

Occassional Snails - I have one right now.


So, what kind of plants could I put in this kind of community tank? Almost everything in there will eat plants haha.
