Question Not interested in moss ball

I mean does he really need it? I got a cave and a small mirror to play with him

I have a marimo moss ball in my tank, and Ahti just... completely ignores it. Some fish play with them, others don't care.

But its a pain to clean i hate dealing with the strings so if he does not play with it why bother? I have a small mirror plus might get a ping ball ball

Mine don't play with the ball, but Tsunami does use his to lounge on. Like a little betta bean bag chair. XD

My betta ignores his moss ball mostly, but he does use it to rest on.

All of my bettas ignore moss balls, but Charry likes to lounge on a floating plastic leaf that fell off of an old fake plant.

+1 TheAnimaLover. Marimo is actually algae so it starves other algae and keeps your tank cleaner.
