    Hello

    The dwarf chain, no, not that Ive seen anyway... or maybe if it does, it doesnt do it ANYWHERE near as much as riccia.
    Hemianthus Callitrichoides, a little, but still much less than riccia. With HC, the bubbles like to collect at the top of the plantlets.
    H. Micranthemoides I dont know.

    HTH.

    im kinda new to this,iv kinda learned the basics to taking care of fish and now im learning for plants since i want to have a med. heavy planted tank, but
    for a semi new guy do u guys recommend riccia since iv read that u must keep up with them by cleaning them (the loose ones that slip by)and making sure they get enough light,because i really like that bubble effect, unless theres another plant that has the effect and is easer to take care of?? and idea's
