Does Riccia get messy like most say java moss does? I have been looking to add moss to my tank for some time now but fear it will become a disaster quickly as it is only a 10g

Edit: i'm sorry if it appeared I tried to jack ur thread i just figured you might know and my LFS has similar deals :D

A little hard to tell from the photos, but that's either Riccia or Java Moss, and it looks more like Riccia.

You don't have to plant Riccia -- it makes an excellent floating plant at the surface, and dojos love resting in it. Nice and soft for them. I suspect they also like eating it. Watch yours, and see if they eat any of it.
