Separate file encryption under High Sierra

Macintoshian Achaia - Ars Technica OpenForum - arstechnica.com
So I currently have a whole bunch of files on encrypted disk images. As I'm moving stuff over back onto my clean instal of High Sierra was wondering what are the best practices now are.

So one reason I ended up with these encrypted images was that when I set up my iMac I didn't really have time looking into file vault and disk level encryption so I turned it off. That is no longer the case, I opted for encrypted APFS. I do however like how I ended up separating very important information and moderately important documents under separate encrypted disk images and separate passwords. Should I keep these sparse bundles, seems easy to backup, or should I move my critical information to another encrypted APFS partition? I wouldn't want that partition to mount automatically or have the password in my keychain. My thought is that by not having some information always mounted it makes my surface attack smaller most of the time. It also happens to be information I don't need often so it isn't that inconvenient to have a separate password. What are your thoughts?
