Rated #55: 75 Gallons Freshwater Fish Tank

Rated #55: 75 Gallons Freshwater Fish Tank - Here's my 75 gallon freshwater.  Don't be too hard on me, I'm new to the hobby.  I just added a new fish today, an Electric Catfish!  I'm so excited.  I also really love my Delhezi Bichir.  Other fish also in the tank: Senegal bichir and striped raphael and featherfin cats.  I have a couple live plants.  I have a few ideas for my tank and will be changing things up soon.  I just love this stuff!  

Any suggestions would be appreciated, Thanks.

About Yourself: I've never had a fish tank until just recently. Life got a little rough and I started looking for some type of hobby to get my mind off of things. I started with a little 10 gallon tank (it's a "Rocky" themed tank which I'm proud of). I found how relaxing it was to just sit and watch my angel fish at night. I was hooked, maybe I'm going overboard now. All is well, I'm having fun. I bought a second tank, brackish setup, for a Green Spotted puffer that I saved from Walmart. His name is Michelangelo (from the Ninja Turtles!) Then I got pretty serious and purchased my 75 gallon. I've put so much time and work into it but I love it. I've got it lined up to pick up a 92 gallon corner tank next week. I plan to set it up as a saltwater tank, my main fish will be a dogface puffer, I totally love' em! Anyway, I'd appreciate any advice or input from anyone. Don't be too hard on me, I'm just learning. Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you guys.
Fish Kept: Electric Catfish, Delhezi Bichir, Senegal Bichir, Striped Rapheal cat, Featherfin cat, Tiger Oscar, Albino Tiger Oscar
Corals/Plants: I have a few live plants that don't seem like they are doing too well. I think I may need better lighting.
Tank Size: 75 gallons
Advice: I AM a "New Hobbyist"!!! And totally loving it!
