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.



Aquasabi is our own brand, under which we offer high-quality products with a very good price-performance ratio. Carefully selected CO2 diffusers, CO2 bubble counters or lily pipes are just some of the items we sell under this brand and which will surely add to the value und the beauty of any aquascape. For this reason, many aquascapers and planted tank enthusiasts use products by Aquasabi.

Besides the good price-performance ratio, our main focus is on the satisfaction of our customers. This is the reason why our doors are always open for those who need help with our products.

When it comes to special aquatic plants, water plants from Aquasabi are just the thing for you. We offer rarities from our own cultivating tanks or import them specifically. These plants are otherwise hard to come by, and most of them cannot be purchased from other shops. We have high quality standards, which make Aquasabi plants a good choice for aquascapers, planted tank enthusiasts and aquatic plant collectors who want to enrich their tanks with rare aquatic plants. Special mosses, particular stem plants, hard-to-come-by ferns or very rare forms of the genus Bucephalandra are only a few of the plants we are proud to offer.
