Lightbulb Unwritten Rules Of Nature Aquarium Style! Combining Bolbitis, Anubias and Trident!

Dear Experienced Planted Tank Enthusiasts,

What are your thoughts on using Bolbitis Heudelotii, Anubias Nana Petite and Microsorum Trident all at the same time in a Nature Aquarium style jungle scape using driftwood and Asian stem plants on the background?

What are the rules of plant selection while doing a Nature Aquarium style aquascape?

Takashi Amano mentioned that Trident shouldn't be combined with the other two in a workshop but yet he combined them in most of his layouts. I clearly am missing a detail about when to use them and when not to use them together.

What do you think? Any opinions?

Thank you.

Happy Fish Keeping

I am no expert (not by a long chalk) but I would say if it looks good to you that is all that matters.

Take only pictures, leave only footprints.

This! X2

Don't build it to take pictures of and show people a "realistic representation of nature"... build it to stare at for hours

I have petite Nana sitting next to cabomba and reneckii ... Umm.. red plant... And a bunch of other stuff that "doesn't belong"

Nobody has ever said, "that aromatica from Thailand shouldn't be with those corydora from the amazon"

Bunch of people said, "oh cool tank"

Amano is just a guy that was pretty good at making aquariums, but really good at making money.

One guy cannot decide plants acceptable in a 'nature' scape. (any live plant is a nature scape?)

I think it more refers to a wild and natural look, as opposed to Dutch or iwagumi.

If you think it will look good, hit it. That fact that he contradicts himself is enough to show it does not matter.

This is going to be my second tank. My first was an Iwagumi. I have decided to use them all together in order to learn about all their properties. I want to discover as many plants as I can so that I will have a better vision when creating a new aquascape. Thank you all for your help !
