What's a Marimo Ball?

This may sound a little naive of me but what is it and why do aquarists like yourselves buy them? I see them all the time in Petco and I was just wondering.

Okay, that much I know of. Just wondered why its popular with betta enthusiasts. Is it because they get rid of nitrates or nitrites?

nitrates, they don't do a whole lot, per say, but they are good.

Check out my thread on them. :D

I don't know what they do originally, but all I know is that a lot of betta enthusiasts like them, so i think I might invest in one for my next fish xD

I really don't have a nitrate problem (or nitrite), so I'm just getting them for looks :)
