Floating plants are fairly easy to keep.
I know about floating plants such as amazon frogbits, duck weed and even riccia which can be easily kept without supplying CO2 or very high lighting. Occasional dosage of fertilizers would not hurt.
You did not mention the wattage of lights. Please do that along with the exact dimensions of the tank. A 50G tank could be narrow and deep in which case your lighting may be adequate but at the same time it could be shallow but wide and long which might demand more lighting!
I am not sure if sharks can be kept in planted tank(even with floating plants)..Just have never seen them in such setups.
One thing to be taken care of in floating plant setup is that you provide ample aeration or else you might loose your fishes.
