    Hey all,

    I have been growing out some Riccia so that I have enough to do some scaping.

    I have it growing by floating at the surface and it is doing very well. I keep it hemmed in by some duckweed, so it is in some nice bunches.

    Some of it has covered my outflows and is growing very nicely. I wanted to share some pics as it might provide a useful cover for spraybars, outlets, uv, and the like. Anything that at least touches the water, but may protrude above it.
    Not totally emersed but very close. Thought it was interesting.......

    Pic 1 and 2 are left and right outflow:
    Pic 3 is a close up from top of one of the clumps.
    Pic 4 is a shot of the same clump from underneath, showing the depth of the bunch. Grows very thickly directly under the light.

    Sorry for the clarity, my camera is old and needs to be replaced......

    EI, auto c02, plus 3X150 6500 MH suspended 9" above the surface.....
