moss balls!

Where did you guys get your moss balls?

I checked the closest petsmart and petco from my house and the only thing I saw were those plants they keep in the plastic tubes... :(

Also, how many should I get for a 5 gallon tank with no other fish living in the tank besides my betta?

thanks!

I went to my local fish store. Sometimes there are people on aquarium forums that sell them. Try looking to see if any independent fish/pet stores are in your area?

In my 5g I got one moss ball and it covers the entire floor of the tank, or rather more like 2/3 of it since I have a hunking piece of driftwood in the middle.

Did you look in the betta cup display? Did you look in the tanks? Did you talk to employees to see if they were just out of them? My store usually carries shrimp, but was out for a month!

Petsmart has moss balls, but I got mine online at plantedaquariums. I think they seem in better shape than the petsmart ones.

My Petsmart keeps them in various fish tanks in the fish section.
