    Interesting thread. Where would Bio-Type Aquariums fit in these categories? Both Strict and "Loose" bio-type

    For all I know in my life, there is only Dutch Aquascaping. But however, after seeing the list here, I feel that I've missed out a lot of things. I'll make it a point to check it out. Cheers.

    Very cool!! great thread and good on you John. Thanks also for the help with editing. The more options and styles (with examples to see and choose from) the better! You are always inspiring us to do better work.

    From what I gather, if you look through the Aquascaping Showcase each of the tanks are more or less based on the Nature Style or Dutch Aquascaping Style. True. These scapes are beautiful aquascapes and inspirational, but something is very wrong here. There are more than two aquascaping styles in our Aquascaping World people! Let see, what aquascaping styles are out there...
    I'm sure there are more styles and derivatives of the above that I have not mentioned. Do you know them?

    Like I said before, many of these styles are often overlooked and shadowed by Dutch and Nature Style aquascapes. So much in fact that I do not believe there is a distinctive American Style, South American Style, UK Style, etc. It seems like these aquascaping are copied again and again each year. The aquascapes in the South Asia i.e Vietnam are developing a new style from what I can tell. It is a Nature based style, but with more vibrant colors.

    How come no one focuses on or creates the other types of layouts, Are the different styles not popular, or worthy of winning aquascaping competitions? ::-?:
