extreme low light 75g semi planted

I had some java moss and java lace fern in my 40 gallon planted tank that had such amazing growth I was just able to plant my 75 gallon bichir tank. I put a few test pieces of fern in there a couple weeks ago and they grew fine. The tank has standard eclipse lights (about 6 year old bulbs too, only 3 out of 4 actually working) and gets some ambient window light but nothing else and the plants are growing fine w/o fertz.
Low tech, low light, low maintenance and I think it looks cool. Check it out, theres a link in my signature.

What kinds do you have in there? The one halfway through looked like ornatipinnis, but couldn't really make it out. And what type of catfish is that?

Thanks all, I have a 12 inch senegalus, a 9 inch ornatipinnis a 9 inch palmas poly and a 7 inch weekesi. I lost my 6 inch albino last week (RIP Amigo the Albino)! I also have a 9 inch monster marble goby and common plego. The cat is about 8inches, i think its a Mystus bocourti (silver catfish) but not too sure.
Thanks on the rock work comment as well, I was going for a prehistoric theme with the ancient fish. With a tall show tank with eclipse filters on top, i have to stand on a barstool to scape it. Its actually quite difficult. I may need to take up yoga before I do it again. LOL.
