Talking Updated 60 gallon planted angelfish tank!

Ok guys so I finally finished planting my tank and I got my angelfish yesterday and they seem to love it. I feed them New Life Spectrum Thera + A and they go crazy for it. This is my first planted tank so I hope it goes well! Oh and I got my algae problem under control and I haven't even received the nerite snails and amano shrimp yet! So I'm going to have about 50 shrimp and 20 snails I'm going to have no use for...they can still some go in my tank though tell me what you think! I also just planted a few plants about 3 days ago so they are still unraveling and growing down. Here's the link:

Also right now I'm just dosing AquariumPlants TOTAL, IRON, and PHOSPHATE root tabs for fertilizers. Is that all I need or what else do you suggest I use to promote plant growth? I have a pressurized C02 system on the tank also.

Yes I know the swords have grown at least 3 inches from last week so it shouldn't be too long before I have everything grown out and looking awesome! Can't wait either

Great tank and beautiful fish.
Planted tanks are good for Angels, they create hiding spots, because when the grow up, some will mate or form pairs, which will create aggression towards the other Angels, keep an eye on that.. How many Angels do you have in the tank?
Also some shrimp could become snacks for the Angels, but hopefully with your plants they will have enough hiding spots also.

For fertlizer, I dose PPS-Pro dry ferts, macro and micro mix, from Green Leaf Aquariums daily. I also add Root tabs from Seachem every month.

Thanks! And you don't wanna know how much work it took to keep that slate together. It had to have fallen apart like 20 times before I realized I needed to silicone it together lol.
