It was a plant made famous by Takashi amano.

Its a bit of a nitrate sponge so to speak, but given the right conditions grows well as a carpet.

If you actually get the conditions correct it can almost take over the tank!

I generally have quite normal plants.. the rarer ones I have are fissidens moss, the petite version of anubias, and maybe pogostemon helferi.

Aha yes Riccia fluitans! I've had some experience with this plant.

The problem with it is that it doesn't really stay rooted, and is more of a floating plant. You need lots of constant maintenance to get it to stay as a carpet, using some kind of weight mesh, with the Riccia sandwiched.

After some time I gave up on the idea and got rid of most of my Riccia (too much work). There is still some floating in my tank, which grows very quickly and needs removal (I leave some behind so it's not all gone). There's also some that got caught in my Java moss and grows nicely in it, being a lighter green too.

If anyone has any good tips on how to best care for this plant, please share!
