Where do I put my Marimo Moss?

I got a Marimo yesterday. I'm going to shorten this because for some reason the 3 paragraphs I JUST wrote were deleted.
It's quarantining in a glass jar full of water. I already rinsed it out. It is next to Omelette's tank, abt. 71 degrees. It has sank down to the bottom already. Low light. Should I keep him in Omelette's tank where there are the same conditions?

Or should I move it to the goldfish tank....
Temp: 60-65 degrees
Lighting: low until 4:00pm, when I turn on aquarium light. Lighting becomes very high until 9:30pm.
Goldfish: Black Moor and Pearlscale. VERY nosy. Like to nom on plants.

Where shall I put the little Marimo?

7 bettas, 2 goldfish, 50+ (accidental) snails, 2 parakeets, 1 dog, 2 cats


Rest in peace Butch, greatest dog ever, Omelette the Veiltail, and Chipita the Veiltail

With the betta. No risk that he'll eat it. The goldies, I wouldn't trust.

Why is it that you only turn on the goldie light in the evening?

Life.

My mom -.- She only lets me put on the light for half the day because the light from the window in my room gives medium light until it starts to get dark outside, which is when I put on the light.

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

Of course I turn it off so they can rest! That's how they get ready to "sleep".... I tap the lid, then I drop in some soaked pellets, wait for them to finish eating, then I double tap the lid, then turn off the light.

So I put the little Marimo with Omelette....he seems quite happy with it. When it sinks he likes to hide behind it :)
