Re: growth and care of Riccia



Of all the methods for attaching Riccia using hairnets works the best for
me.  You must be vigilant in keeping it trimmed back so that the Riccia that
is attached (under) by the hairnet does not rot. If I neglect trimming, the
Riccia closes to the rock will rot and the top portions will lift and
separate eventually floating to the top of the tank.  In this case you just
attach a new portion of Riccia with a new hairnet and give the rest to your
friends.  I have a ton of Riccia rocks in my tank and as long as I keep it
trimmed back, keep plenty of Fe, Ca, Co2 and light in the tank  it stays
attached and looks nice.
