I think she is. She's so cute and feisty. She's a little piggy too. Always looking for foods. Speaking of I'm conditioning her and Walter for spawning and it's time for food

I know. It was because of a bad sitter too. She waaay over fed them. I'm lucky she's the only one I lost but I still feel bad. I think she was an ex fighter. She had these scars on her sides that never went away. They were her weak spot.

I was lucky. I only had to deal with a dorm room for one year. My bf asked me to move in with him at the end of last school year so of course I said yes

they are almost an interactive plant, they will be seen moving around in the tank and skidding below the surface of the water. They do this to attain to preferred conditions.

They will pick up algae and help with controlling it, most of the time it won't even grow.... Even thought hey are technically "algae" they seem to prevent it from growing

They do have a few requirements though. Like they need to be cleaned out every 1 week caused y debris pickup, along with turning onto a different side as if they stay on one side permanatly it starts to turn a brownish color

They do require some light and do much better in a dim light as in high light they seem to develop unsightly brown spots, but don't neccisarilly need any added fertilizers unless the conditions are undesirable
What do you mean "cleaned out"? Like, rinsed through water? I'm sorry, I know nothing about these things. What if your tank doesn't have any live plants? Does it matter? Will the moss ball dirty the tank at all?

no. moss balls will keep your tank relatively clean and should be rinsed in de-chlorinated water every 1-2 weeks to prevent the algae (moss ball) from turning brown and un-sightly
