Interesting! The last pic is a good action shot. The crypts look like C. lucens or willisii or some mixture of them. Some of them are planted a bit deep IMO.

Personally I am not into the plants-in-pots idea. I used them before trying to keep certain plants under control, but it never worked that well. I mean you can spot feed individual plants whether they are in pots or just planted into the substrate. Transferring aquatic plants isn't a big issue, cutting some or half of their roots off usually doesn't bother them (compared to terrestrial plants/trees).

And if you slow down on the feeding a bit , there won't be that much need for vacuuming the floor.

Photos are good!
