I've heard that the reason they aide in reducing algae growth is that, being a form of algae themselves, they out-compete other types of algae for nutrients. I don't know if they really do help or not, but I remember reading that somewhere. I have 5 smallish ones just because I like the way they look. My last betta actually seemed to enjoy rearranging them from time to time, so I never had to roll them around myself (you roll them every so often to keep them from getting a flat side).

Yeah I heard that too. I'm currently testing that with one of my tanks. I saw some algae starting to grow and I threw it in there. So far it actually looks like its working.

Who knows? Maybe they really are why I've never once had an algae problem in my 10gal!

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.

yeah i was thinking of getting some from that guy but i was worried about bugs and whatnot from Malaysia
