Oh well, I'm glad it was only 99 cents.
Had three from him shipped to Greece, Christmas moss, java moss and java fern. The only problem i had was with fern having a couple of leaves turning black, and i made it worse by planting it, now that i have it attached and the rhizome free it is thriving. I lost the Christmass moss but i believe i didnt do something right and it was not the sellers fault.

Dedicated to a soul, i let go away ages ago:

I looove them! They are so cute and so far are the only plant I haven't managed to kill totally LOL

Seriously...I had a 5 gallon that I neglected after my fish died...it had a total algae bloom...when I went to finally clean it after months and months and months of neglect, EVEYTHING was completely coated in algae, the water was only half full and grimy, the filter had obviously stopped working...in other words, it looked like a nasty swamp in there.

The moss ball was not only doing fine, it had almost doubled in size! Go figure.

I got my moss balls from Singapore! They look good and are about a cm in diameter.

I don't know what to do now, though. I was going to put them in my QT tank for awhile, but then one of my fish got a slight case of fin rot and I'm treating him in the tank. Could I just quarantine them in a clear glass vase for now?

Happy caregiver to ten male bettas and one female :)

I LOVE them!
1. Because they are super easy to take care of.
2. Because my bettas like them.
3. It's good to have real plants in the tank.
4. You get to give them funny names.

I have one in each of my tanks(3). They are Trible, Guizmo and Lord Moss.

I just put mine in a small plastic container for about 5 days. Change the water every day and squeeze it gently to get rid of anything yucky. Use tap water without conditioner so it kills wathever is on the moss ball.

Yes. You can also give them club soda to make them happy; it increases photosynthesis.

Ive been wanting some moss balls but never want to pay $8 bucks + for one. Id rather have a large anubias. But one day I will get one.

Just because I'm in a cup, does not mean to pass me up, all day long I sit and stare wishing you would take me there. To your home to set me free, in a tank would mean worlds to me. I'll be your friend and loving pet, buying me wont bring regret. I'm just a Betta can't you see, all I ask is you could too love me - CandiceMM

I was gonna buy some from etsy. I am very into Japanese culture and these are treasured in Japan and given as gifts for good luck. Would go perfect with my Maneki Neko. :)

Is "Marimo" the name brand/manufacturer of the moss ball or the type of moss ball?
