Description

Japanese Takashi Amano has inspired many aquarium owners to keep the 1-5 cm tall cosmopolitic moss, Riccia fluitans, submerged. It can be kept down by tying it to a stone with a piece of fishing line, but new shoots always grow towards the surface, so it may be necessary to prune it with scissors. Riccia fluitans thrives best with added CO2 and in good growing conditions small oxygen bubbles form on the leaf tips. As a traditional floating plant offers good protection for young fish.

Growth:   Medium
Height:  1-5 cm
Width:   5-10cm
Light demands:  0.50 Watt per liter
CO2 demands:   6-14 mg per liter

This is the second batch of Riccia I have ordered and the first from Aqua Essentials. I have planted it alongside the Riccia from the other supplier and the difference is very clear. The new Riccia not only looks better but is growing much faster and in a much more uniformed fashion, ideal for when your trying to cultivate a rich green carpet effect a la Takashi! I will be ordering some more shortly.

Best I've had by far. Most other supplies give you a tiny patch which had been shredded and you can't do anything with. Would/probably will buy again in the near future
