    Hi, i could do with some opinions on this riccia, as you can see i have used net to tie down the riccia to a few of the stones/wood and thread to tie the others. The thread technique was planted 3 weeks ago and it looks ok but the net technique was planted 1 week ago but it doesn't look too good. What do you guys think?

    Necessary Info:
    125L
    CO2 injection (pressurised, 2.5bps (25ppm))
    TPN+ (3ml per day)
    EasyCarbo (2.5ml per day)
    T5 Lighting (7 hours per day)

    Hi
    Your riccia is dying off because you have added to much,also your netting is too tight,remove the items and redo in a bucket of aquarium water.
    The hair/bun nets should have a bit of give in them,for flow and light to penetrate.
    Should recover though if left on the surface to regenerate.

    Yeah agree, if you squash it too much you will just kill it.

    Easy carbo. I'm surprised no one else spotted it. Stop dosing it as liverwarts are VERY sensitive to it. Hope that helps.

    Odd, I used easy carbo to get rid of riccia that had found it's way into my moss. Worked a treat. :lol:
