No, while it is a live plant (algae to be exact) it does use ammonia in the water and some of the other baddies. HOWEVER, one moss ball WILL NOT mean you do less water changes. ONE ball will never use the amount of ammonia 10 fish in a 5 gallon produces. For most tanks receiving the proper amount of water changes, a moss ball is just another decoration and should never be considered an alternative to filtering and water changes.

I know, I do water changes normally and I'm going to euthanize my other fish (besides my bettas) soon with clove oil when i get some cause i dont have big enough bags

Not sure if any of you play Yugioh, but these moss balls totally look like Kuriboh!
