Marimo Moss Balls

Who has these? I just love mine, I think it's so cool that they can move all over the place on their own. This morning in one of my tanks, I noticed a nano marimo ball had wedged itself into between a branch and a stem of one of the fake plants, 3 inches from the bottom of the tank where I last saw it :P It was an impressive feat for a plant!

I watch my moss balls (Gremlin and Gargoyle) all the time. I sit at my desk and they like to 'walk' across the top of the tank. Goblin will play in them when they are adjusting themselves!

If you guys aren't noticing them move at all, they're probably getting the perfect amount of light for photosynthesis. The only reason they tend to move is to re-position themselves to get the right amount of light :)

They will float up to get to light and back down again when they have enough light he what I have read.

I've seen mine (Mario & Luigi) float around, which is pretty cool. Both fish don't seem to mind theirs. I wake up and they are at the bottom, and when I turn the tank lights on they float up to the top. :P
