Yeah it looks like regular to me as well, if you ever get a chance to see mini riccia, you will notice theres a big difference in size between the two. I'll be getting some in a few weeks, the stuff looks really nice!

Thanks guys... I got the Riccia originally from scolley, in a package that was supposed to be mini Riccia with a little regular Riccia thrown in. I guess the regular Riccia took over. Well, in any case, the Riccia is doing really well now and reproducing like mad.

That it does very well. I thought all of it was cleaned out of my tank, about two weeks later I had a decent sized clump hiding behind some plants. It does grow very fast and really isn't that demanding (in my experience).

Just gave a healthy chunk of it away today, about 80% of what I have. It'll all be back soon.

Are you planning on tieing it to a grid? or do you have other idea's because I have some as well tied to a grid. It filled in real well. Got about 1 1/2 to 2 inches deep and then started dieing off. I think it was because the light was not strong enough near the base. So now I have to keep trimming it down to about 3/4 inch and then let it grow for a while before trimming it again. I was hopeing there was another way to grow it like a carpet.
