Riccia
 

Riccia

Single specimens of these plants are tiny (1-2 mm), but they spread to form a floating carpet. They grow quickly, especially under strong lighting, and so they must be cleared on a regular basis.

Riccia fluitans

The floating riccia provides shelter for fry, and a breeding ground for the infusorians that often constitute their first food. This plant prefers moderately hard water, with a pH of around 7.
