That would better fit into the Local Biotopes subforum https://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/f...ocal-biotopes/ but nevertheless impressive.
Last photo: The green plants, the short-leaved as well as the long-leaved, among the Buces, are IMO likely Rhaphidophora beccarii.

Great photos, and they give good insight about the natural habitat of the species. Miremonster is right about the location for this thread, so I am going to move it, and change the title so it gets the attention it deserves. CP77, please do not take offense.

ZOMG Buce overload!

...Although, I'm also curious as to what those other aroid-looking plants are with the lanceolate leaves. I see one that looks a bit like an Aridarum in the bottom photo, but I don't think they're all the same...

My opinion: see above. I know that species from cultivation (Botanical garden Goettingen), and its juvenile and mature growth forms are extremely different from each other. See also

I believe the lanceolate light green stuff in the 1st and 2nd photo could also be a fern, probably a Leptochilus, but it's too small in the pic.
