Thanks for the comments guys, its early days yet and its not as I want it.
I started it about 5 years ago to keep a goldfish, but I have passed the goldfish to someone else since then and decided to start a planted tank.
Upgraded the lights added an external filter and some DIY CO2, want to get presurized with PH Controller eventually (one thing at a time).

I will keep this post updated

I can't believe all that good growth with only 48watts of light. Makes me feel silly I have so much light and my growth looks nothing like yours

Thanks, the intention is that the Riccia will join together as one big ball! Lets see if that is possible.
