This very decorative form of "Coral moss", also known as "Mini Pellia", is probably Riccardia graeffei. Its thallus branches are wider, shorter and softer than those of Riccardia sp. "chamedryfolia", with a deeper green shade. The branches are horizontal, delicately ramified and form dense cushions with a layered structure.

Riccardia species are not very demanding, however they look best with medium lighting, CO2 addition and a complete macro- and micronutrient supply. They should be placed into already cycled, well-running aquariums. Riccardia sp. "graeffei" attaches itself by rhizoids, like other Riccia species; it can be tied or glued to rock or wood, or simply squeezed into crevices of the hardscape. This liverwort is very brittle, but each small piece will grow. Old, big cushions should be trimmed in good time, otherwise they may become detached from the substrate.

This filigree liverwort is among the most attractive epiphytes for the hardscape. Its deeply green, finely textured cushions are an eyecatcher, in larger aquascapes as well as in nano tanks.
