Riccia Aquarium Plant

PRICE GROUP: POR 8

Riccia sp. 'Dwarf', like Riccia, is a floating plant which can be anchored to stones or roots with fishing line to keep it down. When the plant grows well it develops into an unusual and attractive carpet. To prevent it from becoming detached and floating to the top, it should be pruned from time to time with scissors, and fastened down again occasionally. Riccia sp. 'Dwarf' thrives best when CO2 is supplied (see also Riccia fluitans). The origins of this plant are unknown.

Home aquariums are becoming more and more popular, it is a hobby that many people are flocking too and fish shops are on the rise. Fish are generally easy to keep although do they need quite a bit of attention. Puppies and kittens were the typical pet but now fish are becoming more and more frequent in house holds. In recent years fish shops have noticed a great increase in the rise of people wanting to purchase aquariums and fish, the boom has been great for local shops as the fish industry hasnt been such a great industry before now.
