LOL, Pilot00

I've had two moss balls for over a week- one in each tank- and they never move, and one of them doesn't get good light at all. This is so funny that they actually move on their own. When I first put one in Fishie's tank, I had rinsed it off but then squeezed it out so it wouldn't sink to the bottom. lol

I have 3, as of yesterday, and I love them! I originally bought Clyde, and loved him; then I bought Seymour. Yesterday, Seymour had a baby I cannot even explain how excited I was! The baby one doesn't have a name yet, but he will soon... Also, I just won my first eBay auction, EVER - 5 nano moss balls from Malaysia for 99 cents!

The only cure for ignorance is education, and bullying or attacking someone is no way to educate them.

I really don't get the excitement over these things. I had heard everyone saying how cute they are and how people name them and keep them as pets. But they are just balls of algae. They make a nice decoration but a pet? I don't get it. lol

Wow Lizzy that is so cool I have never seen mine move but I bet if they did Perseus would attack the crap out of them..lol He attacked the Hornwort when I first put it in for a couple of hours, it was his first live plant besides the moss balls and he will poke at them sometimes.

When I first put Mario in with Dumbledore, I honestly thought there was going to be some kind of excitement. But, there really wasn't any. He swam over to it, never full on flared but fluffed his fins, blew some bubbles at it and swam away.

Jonah was absolutely terrified of his. I thought I was going to have to take it out. He's very shy to begin with and really only comes out for me, but not for strangers. Now he's fine with it and could really care less.

I have such boring fish, lol.

My plant, Fred, is a pet. If you knew how hard I have to try to keep the thing alive you would agree with me lol. I have a much easier time with fish.
