Got some new plants!

Finally found some Water Sprites yesterday after looking for 2 weeks. 1 for my 25 gallon, and 1 for my 10 gallon, since I was there I bought another Amazon Sword and what I think the guy said was an Onion plant?(far left front cornor)what would you's say? I think I'am finally finished my 25 gallon but plan on planting more in the 10 gallon!

Nice looking tanks, I have a heck of a time finding nice plants in my area, if I want something nice and snail free pretty much have to order online.

Your tanks look great. I've heard of the onion plants and have seen pictures of them used in show tanks. I've read that they are hardy plants and do well in moderate light with a little fertilizer. They get up to 60 inches long but you can trim them for the height you want.

The commonly-named Onion Plant has a bulb which resembles an onion from which leaves grow upward and roots downward. Can't see that in the photo, but the leaves are strap-like which is what they would be.

I had no luck with this plant, due I suspect to my very soft water.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If youíre going to take it under your wing then youíre responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

If it's not the Onion Plant it could be some type of Vallis.
