Woah. That's a bit extreme. Never heard of it doing that. O.O Rotting and causing issues, yeah. But not that quick, nor that bad. That's insane. I had mine in my Raph's tank when I first got it for like 2 days before I got the chance to look up info on it.. xD

I think they are too, but they do help with preventing algae growth. But you also have to remember the other steps to algae outbreak prevention. lol

I've done that a time or two, myself. Once you've rinsed and squeezed, rinse it in the bowl you're going to put it in, and squeeze it over the sink a time or two.
It should be fine. ^.^

It's also a really big moss ball lol it may be close to dying anyways, I wonder how old it is because I've heard they grow very slowly and this one is huge. But he's all clean now ^^

Eh. Never heard of a plant like that dying due to old age.. xD
