Looks great - I like it!
Is that fluorite that you're using?
Very nice narrow leaf java fern.
What kind of moss is that in pic #4? It almost looked like a chunk of cladophora to me, but it must be some moss.

Great scape! Going to be sweet when the Crypts grown in. Hope you keep the top of the valley open.

Beautiful. Its simple yet i can't pull myself away. I'd love to see it in person. It has such a natural yet hyper-real sort of feeling to it, as if it could actually occur in some tropical river or lake yet its clean enough to feel like a piece of art.

Much fan of the chaos that is the java fern/val combo.

I think the plants on the left are blocking a lot of light to the Crypts. Clear a bit of light path and the crypts will kick into gear sooner.
