Initially they will float. They are dead sank after they fill with water though. Marimo moss, that is.

Java moss sinks/floats/moves if not tied down.

Thank you everyone! I just picked up a real Marimo Moss ball today from PetSmart. I opted against returning the Java moss ball, at least for today. Lightning bolts were pouring down from the sky when I got out of PetSmart so I just went home!

Cobalt seems to like the new addition. I've seen him rub himself against it. =)
