New to the tank community

Good day fellow fish friends. I am a newbie, only have set up my tank in August. I have a 50 gal bow front tank which i have started breeding guppies in. I guess it is low tech; my substrate is just granite chip gravel with smooth black river rocks on top. I have 7 different plants growing, though i dont know the names of all of them. I have an Amazon sword that has leaves that are a foot long. There are 4 philodendron that are growing underwater with the longest hanging down the outside of the tank.
Now to my fish. I have a Juli corydora, a pair of platys, and a new pair of yoyo loaches. I have 2 female guppies that are the original guppies i started with; OG (original guppy) is a lace delta tail and UG (ugly guppy) is a feeder guppy that survived the turtle. Between those 2 they have had 3 bathes of fry. OG first batch was bred with a 2 toned blue male, they a just reaching breeding size. I have 2 breeding males right now. One is a yellow leopard print flag tail and the other has a leopard print body with a scarlet delta tail. I had a golden glass female that produce 2 batches of fry before she passed. So in total i have around 40 guppies right now with the new batch of fry born yesterday.
Im just so proud of my tank and wanted to share with you guys. Thanks.

That's awesome!

Be warned, pretty soon you're going to have a lot of guppies.

Eventually you'll want to think about fertilizers, but you've got time. Read read read.
