hey everyone!!!

i have a new layout. this time i wanted do try lots and lots of riccia covering a complex wood structure.

this is the result


still hasn't reached 1 month old but it's going really well. the ADA substrate does wonders!!!

take care

Excellent tank, Space Cowboy. I'd be interested in knowing the specs of the tank also.

does putting riccia on driftwood mean you have to take it out every couple weeks to replant them?
no plant lives forever so eventualy the lower portions of riccia will die and it might get loose. don't know when it'll happen i guess it depends on how much light reaches there

here is a photo without pearling

u could always trim it to a certain height so that the bottom will not rot completely and come loose.

nice tank! must truly look magical when all of that riccia pearls.

hey!!
Volkracing99 the fish are Paracheirodon Simulans they're like innesi neons but without the red stripe.
cotranchau i'm allways ajusting the riccia's shape and so far i only had to do one large trim to prevent it from rottening
here's an update:

the fish where all hiding in the back

Thats wild man, very clean and with a chaotic look to it which I love.

Also, the clover looking plant that just pops up randomly really adds to this design for me.

Good deal.
