So I may want to play it safe with Floofi and put her somewhere salt free. I think I can do that. I'll always keep a spare Gladware just for her. Thanks. :)

Thank you for asking about the salt Sakura! Though I didn't really think too much about it because my whole tank is planted, and I already have to avoid anything more than small doses of salt. :/ If I end up having to take it out of the planted tank though, it is good to know as I tend to put salt in my bowls...

You're welcome, Kytkattin. I only have a few plants in my tank, can't keep 'em alive so that's why I got a moss ball. I thought, "It's a shapeless blob of green, surely I can't kill this thing." I hope I'm right, I'm getting absurdly attached to Floofi now.

They're fun. Way more fun than you'd think a shapeless blob of green would be.

From what ive seen from my moss balls, they can live in anything and everything. I have put them through so much punishment and they are all still healthy and green, i even left one in my tank (by accident) when i was treating my tetras with ich cure. These moss balls can survive just about anything and any condition :D

Good to know. None of my tanks are cycled.

Ooh, thanks ds2009, that's good to know. I'm like DQ, I only have filters in my 10gs so none of my smaller tanks are cycled either.

moss ball bonsai

I had mine in a tank heated to 78 and they did fine and in my dream tank below, they are under some major lighting. I love this tank and the bonsai tufts on the drift wood are marimo balls. I have seen people take them appart and use them as carpet too. Nice to have carpet that you don't have to trim!!

This tank looks absolutely amazing. It looks so simple but put together so nice.
