What's this Liverwort?
 
Hello! anyone knows what's this species of carpeting plant in that video?
It looks like a liverwort and he says in comments that he thinks it's a riccia but he's not sure and it looks larger than a riccia fluitans I think... what's your opinion? it looks like "mini pellia" but it's brighter than a mini pellia... :D
Thx!

(sorry for my bad English)

This looks like a pellia (as they are called in the planted aquarium trade) that is growing partially emersed . The color is not a reliable feature to distinguish the types since nutrients and lighting can influence how dark or light the foliage appears. All of the mosses and liverworts in the planted aquarium trade will grow well in the wetter parts of a viv - some grow too well.

Thx for your answer, ok I didn't know that the nutrients and lightning could impact the color of the liverwort, but it's so bright green and not transparent as the monosolenium tenerum "Pelia" that I thought it was an other species of liverwort... (Sorry for m'y bas english)

Although conditions can alter the appearance, it does not at all look like the standard Riccardia chamedryfolia nor Monosolenium tenerum. Maybe subwassertang.

Greetings,

I agree with RMugele - though note that many things different taxa are sold as "Pellia" and "Süsswassertang".

The "original" Süsswassertang is, interestingly enough, not a liverwort at all - it is actually the gametophyte of a fern species - a fern that never "grows up" ;)

In either case, you will usually see differences in transparency and leaf size/shape when growing plants like this submersed as compared to emersed.
