Marimo Moss/Green Water

1287 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  38626
I just bought a marimo moss ball and i have changed the water in the cup that is currently housing the ball until my tank is done cycling. I have noticed that the water is turning green in the cup and junk is collecting at the bottom of the cup. I'm worried about putting the ball into my tank, I don't want it to dirty the water. Has this happened to anyone, can anyone give me some advice??

Hmmm... Does the water you put in it's container have chlorine in it? I guess if it doesn't look like it's decaying I would just give it a good washing/ringing out and put it in the tank. I think they're near impossible to kill. The filter should take care of any matter that comes off the ball.
