I haven't used X-gal, but I work with AEC quite a bit and I use 
Crystal Mount with that. I used GVA before but I was getting a lot 
of bubbles and just found that it was just a pain to work with 
(not as thick as permount, but not thin enough to be able to just 
drop it on the slide like Crystal Mount). I do post-mount after 
the Crystal Mount dries with Permount and a normal coverslip 
because it makes my slides sharper looking. (I think this might be 
partially to due to the texture of the tissue I'm working 
"You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the 
You have a right to be here and whether or not it is clear to you, 
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at 
peace with G-d, whatever you conceive Him to be. And whatever your 
labors and aspirations,in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace 
in your soul.-Max Ehrmann,"Desiderata"
