Moss balls and Marimo balls are basically the same thing except marimo balls are much much smaller. They are also called nano moss balls and I think they are from Japan. I think a marimo pad is just a moss ball pulled apart to make a carpet for the bottom of the tank.

SBD - Swim bladder disease, usually caused by overfeeding.

SBD is swim bladder disease. It's sadly here where I live terribly common, and sometimes if left untreated and the fish is still alive (like Sasuke the rescue) it can become chronic and a never ending battle. He was fed waaaay too much by his first owner, which then my friend rescued which now I have. That's why it's recommended to give them a good variety of food, and even fast for a day of the week :)

Turns out it wasnt SBD guys! She just swallowed a bubble. XD She is perfectly fine today, and i released her back into the sorority with not a single problem.

And i think that everything else was explained pretty well as far as the marimo goes. XD And yes, that is what a marimo pad is... Just a torn apart ball made flat. ^^;

Congrats on your sorority! Still going well? Yeah I would add a lot more plants, that big bush is a good hiding spot, you're right. Even if they can hide in the sides, that means if they want to travel in the front, back, or anywhere in the center of the tank they are vulnerable. So even if it's not super densely covered, you still want to have all general areas covered, know what I mean?

Ah, yes. :) I just need to figure out what i want in the front. XD Ill have to do something with a teacup im sure, because the plant i am thinking about isnt tall enough. But so far actually, all nips in the fins have started healing and there are no new ones.

The girls even school with very little flaring! Especially when food is involved. XD

I think you should get some short bushy plants in the front, taller ones in the back. It created depth.
