How are the crypts doing? Are they starting to attach to the substrate yet? If they are still loose, try this-
The clumps are a little too big (making it harder to plant), so you can try breaking up each clump into two or three smaller clumps. Then trim the roots down to 1-2 inches. If the roots are too long, it's harder to push the ends in.
Now you can try replanting the root-trimmed smaller clumps. Plant a little deeper than the crown, then gently pull up until the crown is just visible. This will straighten the roots.
Hope that helps!
PS I like the use of a critter keeper, and it looks like you're off to a good start!
