Of course you can add riccia to your tank. Will it thrive? You might as well give it a shot and see what happens. I don't have the CO2 hooked up on my 85gal yet, but there's some riccia that's growing OK. Go ahead and try it.

I have riccia in my 55gal with normal 40w lights and no CO2 and it does fine.

Would it be floating or would you have it completely submersed. I would think that floating would do better than if it is deep in the tank. I am with Erik on this one. Give it a shot. I see three possible outcomes in order of likelyhood IMO, the Riccia stays green and grows slowly, the Riccia grows like gangbusters, and you will be posting in the swap and shop in a few weeks, or it slowly melts until there is no Riccia left in the tank.

Let us know if you decide to try it and how it works for you.
