Hi,

I would love it if it was more elaborate. And you dont even have to move away from it being a riccia only tank. maybe some white sand somewhere, cliffs, valley. tying the riccia on round rocks is also an option so it gives it contour =) good luck

Thanks for comments.
Stepheus, that's good idea with sand. I'll try fill with sand between rocks something like river, and maybe ad some moss on small rocks. It's running for about 4 weeks now.
Lonepeace, maintenance is very simple. Every 2 weeks i change 1 liter of water and that's all about mainteance. It is completely algae free.
This is how it looks like before (11/2006 - 05/2007):

Very nice.

Have you thought about adding maybe one or two "sprigs" of dwarf hairgrass in the riccia?
