LOL, that'd be for me. Does that type of moss also come in loose form?

No, marimo moss balls come in balls. When they split (because without the rolling waters they come from in Japan, they generally split pretty easy) they form more of a moss 'mass' lol. I had my regular moss ball spread out on driftwood for months and it never attached so I took it off and rolled it back up. Now it's all sloppy looking! lol
You're thinking of java moss, or christmas moss. They are the clumps of hair like moss which, yes, will do okay in a variety of light and water conditions :)

Those wouldn't be bad I guess if I had more than one in each tank but the only place I've ever found those or moss of any kind for that matter is Pet Smart for $8.99 each. That's just a little much. I need to work a couple small heaters into the budget before winter. Right now their water is fine but I suspect it will get too cool this winter.

yes, moss balls in stores are ridiculous. I got my small ones (nano) on ebay for like 5$ shipping included. Costs nothing to sell them because they're drained of most of their water so they fit flat and are light :)
I think if you're in the states, there are members who sell their extra plants for cheap or free or trade. Which makes me want to live in the staes!
You can post in the classifieds section. Mo, for one, is always selling plants. Mo will also give you great advice on their maintenance!
