What's the big deal with Marimo Moss Balls?

I'm hearing nothing but amazing things about Marimo, and how they are "quirky" and have personalities. But how is this so? Can anyone explain to me how this plant is so special? I'm considering purchasing one or two tomorrow for my boys to play with. (:

Supposedly they have been know to move around the tank on their own and they somehow help with algae control. I think its actually some kind of algae itself and not really moss.

I had the nano moss balls which where cool but I somehow lost all 5 of them >.<
I want a few of the large ones, maybe they wont go running off on me

Size. Since Marimo moss balls take awhile to grow some shops sell nano ones (they're tiny) or you'll see the normal sized ones.

Haha thanks.

Most people who get nano ones get them online, none of the stores near me sell nano Marimo moss balls, only regular sized ones.

So sites like these are the places were you can order the nano ones.

I got mine off ebay from a seller someplace in Asia, i think it was malaysia.

They are pretty small


I got mine from them:

They were a little beat up by the time they reached me in Alaska, but I ploped them in water with some light and they were fine.
