UG is nothing like riccia. Riccia is just evil. It's like an STD that makes its round through plant clubs.
I've had this UG tank up for about 8 months. In that time, besides trimming or "mowing" it to make it grow even shorter with even finer leaves, It's only been the last month or two where I've had to thin it out a bit. Basically I've never seen it starve itself from light. It doesn't necesarily grow on top of each other, but more dense. Unlike riccia it has roots. Just think of it like hairgrass. It'll just keep growing thicker and thicker instead of growing on top of each other.
Still though, UG is a sensitive plant that for me usually takes a few weeks to acclimate. It's totally worth it though, such a beautiful plant.
