Hehehe..I am glad you love it and grow it so nice. Just think, if we all loved the same things we would be in big trouble, because there wouldn't be enough of it to go around..

I'm so about to give up and let it win. Another 45 minutes was spent picking out little pieces I miss last week. How much longer will this go on?

All my riccia seems to have died since I started dosing excel...the breaking apart during water changes was quite annoying, though.

If you can love BBA I think you'll have a place for Riccia as well.

LOL. I'd rather have a tank full of BBA any day of the week. This stuff is pretty but it's everywhere. I even found it growing emersed in my plant containers from where I've dump the water changes on them.

Why? Most of my kuhlis have had a lifespan of around a decade - and they've never seen riccia.

Heck I have three in my office tank that were adults when I bought them and are at least 11 years old. Wouldn't know it to look at them though!
