My first planted tank

Just setup my first planted tank and I just wanted to share and see what people thought about it.

I used flourite black as the substrate, found some nice lava rocks for the scape, and so far have added a few plants. I know the green ones are amazon swords, but I can't remember what the reddish ones are if anyone could ID them that would be great.

Also how do you think the red plants look? When I removed them from the little pots I split them all up. Do you guys think I should bundle them up tighter and have them look like a couple larger plants or does it look okay the way it is all spread out?

looks good. I like them spread out more than bunched up. when they grow in, it will look fuller.

I like the rocks and the plants. Everything looks arranged well. Those Swords like good light, root tabs and Iron. Is your substrate deep enough? Don't be shy with the Nitrate, Phosphate and CO2 if you got it. Keep your Potassium up. Good luck!

Red ones are probably crypts. Its good to split them up and do so again once they get thicker (if you want). Looks good though. Be patient and good luck
