The only thing you might want to check into is the substrate of your set-up. If you're planning on setting up a naturalistic enclosure, you should probably look into bowl-feeding. If you do this you can simply put the crickets int the bowl to feed them, thus reducing the possibility of one of the cresteds making a dive for a cricket and getting a mouth full of substrate. This will also help decrease the possibility of crickets getting under the moss, dieing, and then creating a horrible stench. Great image isn't it? lol.

For our plants, I would suggest pothos, it definitely has my seal of approval, because I actually have the ability to keep it alive. It has lots of hanging "limbs" that you can drape over branches or perches you have in the enclosure. Another plant that I'd look into is the "snake - plant". It does well with a minimal amount of soil, and has these really interesting roots that my leachies love to hide in.
Finally, the lights, If you buy one of those overhead desk flourscent light things from home depot and a flourscent "grow" light from the same place, it will cost you next to nothing. Then you can attach it to the top of your tank, and it also gives you enough light to view your animals with.

Sorry this was so verbose, but good luck, and I hope that the forum's some good reading

Ian
