it floats until it collects water. you can try squeezing it a bit while its in the tank. so it absorbs more water quicker

Something you may or may not encounter is those deterius worms living inside the moss ball if it was grungy and full of food bits. Mine had worms when I got them.

I dubbed them evil and threw them in a cereal bowl of dechlorinated water on the bathroom counter where they got bright indirect light from a window being nearby and i've had mine for a year like this with no problems. When I infrequently change their water I rinse them under cold running water from the sink and squeeze them out before tossing them back into their fresh bowl. Despite the "abuse" they are bright and beautiful, so I don't think you will have any problems with yours.

Flourish Excel will kill them though, they are an algae ball rather then a moss. (you can google more about that if you wish) Some of the sites with their history are fun to read, and there is actually a festival dedicated to them.

GL with your first live plant btw :) It shouldn't take more then a day or two to sink, as mine got older it seems like it water logs quicker then when I first got it.
