I've never seen this happen. I'd say either your fish is attacking it or maybe it's dying.. Not sure what happens with it when it dies. I've never had that happen either.

What kind of additives are you using, type of lights, age of bulb, kelvin and photoperiod. How big is the tank, is it a new moss ball and the only one you have...can you post a pic.

Its the only one I have, its like 5 months old ish... I put some aquarium plant grow and dechlorination stuff. Just a reg aquarium bulb and it changed it a few months ago.. The sword plant is doing fine if that helps.

Honestly I don't know all that much about the moss balls(never had one) other than they are algae and my thought was that some products that can affect algae might be causing the moss ball problem-like Excel and algae-cide type products. I would think they would be fine in about any type of light-but, I really don't know....Sorry, I wish I could be of more help....
