Japanese Takashi Amano has inspired many aquarium owners to keep Riccia
fluitans submerged. It can be kept down by tying it to a stone with a piece
of fishing line, but new shoots always grow towards the surface, so it may be
necessary to prune it with scissors. Under water R. fluitans thrives best
with added CO2 and in good growing conditions small oxygen bubbles
form on the leaf tips. As a traditional floating plant offers good protection
for young fish.
