I think doing crypts will end poorly. they need very low pH to do well. i'd stick with the ferns, anubias, and vals.

CAFE has a club day at Aquarium Adventure on the 19th where you'll get 25% off livestock if you join the club. That would save you some $$ on their good selection of tanganyikans and plants. they had a lot of anubias when i was there tonight.

I'll haveta beg to differ re crypts and pH. It all depends on the species. Ciliata, for example, is even found in brackish waters. I've kept wendtii in Tanganyikan tanks before and they did pretty well.

Funny you mention CAFE, was just at their website, wanna try to start going up for some meetings.
