At first my Kaoru pecked at it, then rubbed all over it, then after nearly balding part of it she made a nest out of it. THEN she learned it moves. Now she's still a tiny betta but rapidly growing so getting it to move takes a bit of effort. She'll wedge between the glass gems and marimo till it moves. She has gotten the Marimo to roll on her already-really no idea how, but thankfully she got free by herself so not really concerned about that to much. To her the marimo is a toy, a bed, and sometimes food.

@choclateBetta Me? Well anyways mine isn't to tiny but it's decent size maybe a bit big for her gallon tank but it makes her happy.

PS: her tanks been rearranged, should move it back like that since she couldn't really move it like that. She's fat cause she just ate BTW.

Marimo is great for small tanks.

It is, but as you can see that one is a nice size ball. Could have gotten a smaller one but didn't realize how big this would be once inside. BUT that's okay betta loves it. Should get one for Jabi (my newest betta) maybe it'll help calm her nerves.

My betta's dont really notice it too much, but my ghost shrimp love it.
There was a black knife fish (or something of that nature?) in petsmart that was absoutely infatuated with the one in his tank when I bought mine. He wouldnt leave it alone, and when the woman who was helping me pulled it out to show me he freaked out, and when she put it back in he went back into his infatuated state and kept like :sniffing: the ball. It was so cute! I was tempted to buy him after that

I moved mine to my guppy tanks and they started nibbling on it.
