they all can be together in your tank. just make sure that your anubias and your java ferns are attach to a driftwood or rocks coz it will not survive in the substrate. christmas moss is a little expensive and hard to find but they are surely beautiful.

I have my anubias buried in the sand and ITs doing great. If you do bury it, just make sure not to cover the the stick thing that the leaves are growing out of. Only bury the roots. It has a name (starts with an r-Daileene, do you know lol?) but you'll know it when you see it

It decreases the intensity and amount of light getting to the bottom of the tank.
