extra moss balls???

I wanna add one (or two) to Sushi's tank (2g) but so far all I can find are the teeny tiny ones (nanos- only bout 1/2in) which is a little TOO small, they are pretty cheap (like $2 a pop) but those are being shipped from overseas so it will take like 2-3wks to get here. the bigger ones I can find locally are crazy high. anyone on here have some they wanna get rid of for a reasonable amount of $$$

thats where I was finding the nano ones. they say they are only 1/2in, are they supposed to be that small and will the nano variety grow or just stay that small??? I was hoping for something about 1-1.5in in diameter...

They'll grow, but slowly. When I say "slowly", I mean that their growth rate is roughly 5mm per year - I think that's 0.2 of an inch. You should probably buy the ones at your pet store, because you could be waiting until you're old and grey (slight exaggeration) for them to get to 1.5 inches diameter.

I just ordered one from ebay. its the little nano one (like .6in) but it only cost me $1.80 including shipping so I guess I will just start off with that one and see how it goes, hopefully it will grow for me. this is my 1st moss ball, I hear they are pretty easy but I have been known to have a brown thumb lol which is why the only plant in my tank is a pothos cuz thats the easiest thing in the world to grow...does anyone know how fast they grow or if there are ways to accelerate thier growth?
