El Natural Style This style is sharply different from other aquascaping layouts. Although the El Natural Style is more of a plant growing technique that involves using natural light, potting soil, and few water changes, these aquariums often have their own flavor and aquascaping style. The El Natural Style is designed and promoted by Diana Walstad who is a well known ecologist and author. You most likely won't see these aquascapes in main stream aquascaping competitions, but it's an aquarium style that many love because of its real roots in nature (instead of artificial environments). Here's an example of Diana Walstad's El Natural Aquariums Please discuss the techniques involved in creating a El Natural Style, and feel free to share your own El Natural scape.
