Can anyone recommend some salt tolerant plants?  I've set up a 55 brackish 
tank, would love to grow some long leafed plants...Will sags or vals 
tolerate salt well?  (salinity ~ 10)  I also have a brackish vivarium set up 
with mudskippers and crabs--any good emergent plants? (Besides mangroves?) 
I apologize if this has been discussed here recently, been a member for 
years, but haven't been reading for a long time...

Ruppia does well. Few FW plants will tolerate 10ppt. 
Crabs often will eat your plants also.
There are many estuary plants you can try.
