I have a few of those in my show tank, and they have not been a problem with my Ranalisma (which is finally starting to root after I removed the super-destructive flying foxes).

I have heard other people mention that Corydoras are not good to keep with Riccia, but I haven't kept the two together, personally.

I didn't realize there was a risk with keeping the two together. I have two different tanks with the Cory/Riccia combo and have never had a problem.

What is the risk supposed to be? Is it the netting or grid that keeps the Riccia in place, or something else? I'll have to keep an eye on it at any rate....

The only problem I could see would be that maybe they might loosen some of your riccia if its not tied down good....dont know though, they might not bother with it unless it gets some food caught in it.
