    Hi Tom,

    are Angel fish renowned for treating Riccia like a floating salad bar? they've demolished about 8 sq inches since I put it in about 4 days ago (3 fish thats all!). Id hoped after I saw them eating it that its growth rate would outdo them, but no dice so far.

    Right now, Id rather have the Riccia and other plants of that type more then the Angels, Im a bit clueless on how to stop them eating it.

    Well, the angels went on holiday to my LFS, decided that this is sposed to be a non stressful hobby and they werent condusive to my blood pressure. LFS gave me a straight swap for 3 lovely Rosey Barbs, so all is well in the world.

    Well, you can try Riccia later, given your tap and other issues, the rosey barbs will suit you well for now.
