Marimo moss balls

I was wondering if they should be quarantined before being added to the tank? If they do, how long should they be kept in quarantine? By the way, I didn't get them from a tank. They came in individual cups. One last thing, do they need any plant fertilizer? I'm new to this whole plant thing.

Yes, they should be quarentined for two weeks, mainly just to make sure no snails/nasties are introduced.

Okay, I figured they would have to be but I wasn't completely sure. Thank you for your help! Should I be treating them with anything to get rid of anything or should I just leave them be in the quarantined tank for two weeks?

Just leave t hem and watch for snails or anything, take them out if you find them. You could rinse it too.

So no, you don't need to treat them with anything.
