I wish riccia wouldn't be such a mess to keep! It gets everywhere! But it definitely looks good!
Every single time I touch the tank little ricca frags get everywhere its a total pain. I use my fingers to push it all back into the ball.
Nice project you have.
I think carpeting with Riccia in such low light would be troublesome. Why don't you use some type of moss. It is easier to manage and grows even in low light.
With the fish load you have I believe that Bacopa can grow without added ferts. It might benefit from them, though.
We want pics of the fish
Probably be what I end up doing. I haven't had moss since my crayfish days.
Went out today and got the rest of the fish and a huge clump of bacopa.
I had to change the stock. Least killi are not in season right now. I manged to find 4 but i'm not sure if they will tolerate such a small group. For now it's a mosquito fish palace.
Atm I have a trio of Flag killi. Originally I wanted 2 females because wild females seem to acclimate way better than wild males. However, I found a fully grown male today, beautiful colors, and decided to try it. He's doing good right now and if he stays solid I'll move one of the ladies out. I have pics of them below
I also have the 4 least killi. Right now the are probably less than half an inch long. Not really able to take pics of them but I do have a few pics from my old group.
Then I have 4 mosquito fish. 2 spotted males, pics below, and 2 females. I'm only keeping one female and she's rather large (2") because female mosquito fish are one of the most aggressive fish i've kept.
Also added 15 ghost shrimp which are doing well. The mosquito's like to hunt them and I throw a few to the paradise fish.
PICS most of them are from the old tank.
Here's the boy i got today. He's doing fine I think. He's duking it out with the mosquito's for control of the pot.
Here's some pics of my female flags
Here's the spotted male mosquito fish. The morph shows up in about 1 out of every 300-500 males I'd say. It takes me a while to catch them. The are actually the origns of the Dalmatian genes.
Least killi. I find my wild Least Killi to be 100X more colorful than what you see commercially.
