I just ordered one from eBay and it should be here in 3 weeks or so (hey, the shipping was free!)
I need to start brainstorming names for it, lol.

No worries. Algae isn't a very scientific term. What we call algae is all over the figurative taxonomic board. I honestly didn't know what they were so I went to look it up. I found a lot of scientific articles about them. The japanese really treasure them.

The won't clean up the crude that you vacuum out, but they will take in some ammonia. You'll still need to do your water changes, but there will be a little less ammonia in the tank. Plus they are fuzzy. ^-^

I've had mine randomly float and sink, and the water movement moves the ball, then it'll sink in a different position. :)

And they make a farting noise after you squeeze them and put them back in the tank!
