My riccia and i'm over the moon.

I have seen many photo's of riccia pearling and it's just amazing.
Now i finally got my hands on some riccia.
I'm Extremely happy and to see it with my own eye's,It is something else.

Looks very good, you should be pleased. I have never kept riccia. The king of pearling for me is Mayaca.

Mayaca fluviatilis. I am trying it as an alternative to ambulia, which grows too fast for my liking.

I have approx. 150 watts over a 45 gallon and it is growing quite well, trimmed about 4-5 inches off it last night (2-3 weeks growth). Pearls like mad in the evening. So it should do well for you, one would think.

I would like to try Riccia some day, but too much tennelus, microsword etc in the foreground right now!
