your riccia looks so thin - why?
Its mini riccia.
Some updates from this morning...
High res at: Sven's Gallery :: ADA 45-C Planted Tank - Garden Cube
How do you keep your Riccia down on the ground?
Mine are all sandwiched between nylon mesh and stainless steel grids.
Dwarf Riccia came in as hitchhikers on a patch of HC square purchased at AFA.
On a separate note, 3 of my 20 CRS are berried. Varying egg color.
I'm feeding them Hikari and Nisso shrimp food purchased from AFA.
Another 9 mos and maybe we can start trading lower grade CRS.
Will - that is great news!
The Riccia is tied to flat rocks (both Riccia Stones from AFA but also the far more affordable slate I bought at Dolphin Pet Village... $5 for a lifetime supply, basically).
That didn't work perfectly... the Riccia is pearling so hard it literally pulled itself away from the anchor.
I trim the Riccia once every week or two - a chore I still sort of enjoy - and if clumps start floating up big time, once in a while I'll place a new stone on that spot... you can see some new shiny black rocks buried in the "river" - those were areas I just decided to "anchor" in that way.... and it worked... so far.
Very strong contrast in a such small space!
I thing so,Beautiful stretch tank overflowing vitality

wow amazing!!! you have too tell me how too make the bervipas red in my tank its green
Hi, nice colours, the red plant looks like Ludwigia arcuata to me. What liquid fertilisers are you using?
The op hasn't posted since 09, I'm not so sure they'll be all that active to reply to your questions.
May I ask why you're asking about ferts in particular?
Because the Ludwigia is sooo red I want to know the secret ;-)
I don't think it's anything to do with ferts particularly, we know we can induce red by using high lights and limiting kno3 which damages the plant by inducing kno3 deficiency but I have to say the reasons behind reds is poorly understood with some citing increased iron dosing and very low GH levels as well as both lean and well over EI levels of dosing. Searching the Barr report will give you the best hints as to how to get the reds though.
