Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I have been trying to figure out / ID this stuff for a week! I bought a sizeable amount of Java Moss from my LFS last week, and in it there was a bit of this stuff. It was enough that when it got separated from the Java Moss, it forms a small clump on the surface. I have been trying to figure out what the hell it was all week. They did have it in a few tanks at the LFS in big floating mats, so I knew it was something that I could also have in my tank. Now I know exactly what little extra bonus I got! Thanks!thumbs2:

Is there any growth information on this stuff? how fast does it grow? will my little clump grow and grow bigger?

That is where I got mine. They are good, could use some schooling in customer service. Their frogs are not usually setup right, at least not pacmans. Usually decent selection with fish and plants though. You should take a trip up to Baltimore and check out Aquarium Depot and House of Tropicals, more than worth the drive.

Definately Riccia fluitans or by common name - crystalwort.
