I was looking into moss balls myself, which is why I asked about cleaning them so they don't make the water worse instead of better. :)
The employee in the fish section warned me that some moss balls can get too big for a 5 gallon. If you really want one in a 1 gallon you may have to make sure it isn't one of the moss balls that grow up to be huge. I saw some that were already had 3 inch circumference. Your 1 gallon could look like "Attack of the Giant Moss Ball" by accident.
I'm still kind of bummed the pet store near me only sells the big kind. I at least got better lighting. I want to see the brown algae win now.
