I just bought two of them at a LFS today (3.5 Euros for both of them). For now I put them in a small 3 liter tank with normal tap water. One of them is vibrant green so I guess it's healthy. The other one has 2 or 3 spots where the algae are missing, and it's brown-ish too. Hope I can "revive" it, the conditions it was beeing kept it were horrid. Any advice on how I could treat them? (I've hear people mention salt).
Also, I know they become round because they keep rolling on the bottom of the tank. I have big gravel mixed with patches of sand in my big tank, I guess I can't look forward to nice looking round Marimos, can I? :(
Interesting. The "dead" one is floating. I guess it's either "fake" or in terrible condition :(
