New plants-New look

Well I lucked out today and got some nice plants- some Vallisneria spiralis (not an amazing specimen but I am 95% sure it can come back ) and some eleocharis montevidensis. I REALLY like the eleocharis, it looks really nice. I also got two beautiful male Poecilia reticulata though they are hiding in the eleocharis so no pictures of them yet

I like the black substrate in the middle with the drift wood. Nice job.

What's in there, equipment wise, fish wise, etc?

Thanks Mel if you ever need any plant clippings I might be having a few clippings if you want them (in a few weeks)

Once you get started with the planted tank bug it really bites in and takes hold!

Cool tank blazey, I really like the two-tone substrte it's a great touch.

Have you had it that way for long? Does it intermingle easily, or do you think you'll be able to keep it distinct?

I need to post an updated picture! The onion plant has grown like 5-6 new leafs, the ludwigia is almost to the surface, the crypts are growing slowly but surly, got some new vals and the vals in their are sending out runners. Also New plants should be coming in on Friday.
I have had it like this for about a month or so, so far keeping the substrates apart has not been to hard. when I do a WC a few eco rocks get on the sand but I can simply pick them up as it is only about 10 or so piecs. I will get a picture up later.
