Can riccia survive without co2? Anyone ever try using this in a low tech as a carpet? I currently have it in a high tech and it is growing very well both floating and tied to rocks.
Same question for s Repens. can it survive in low tech?
Thanks in advance for the help!

Riccia will do more than survive without co2. This covers almost half of my 55 & is about 3" thick in most areas!


I've also got S. repens in the same tank. It took a while to become established, came from Petsmart. Now it just keeps chugging along. Definitely not growing super fast though.

I've never had a problem growing Riccia without CO2 either floating or submerged. Before you know it you'll have a ton of it. Stauro growing it emmersed so I can't answer that.
