I bought a moss ball today (feb 9) at petsmart. while I was browsing the forum I decided to take pictures of my moss ball and edit them! I'll show the original picture and the edited. feel free to post your moss ball picture editings here, too. (that is, if you have any... :oops:)

they can clean the tank (slightly) and help with algae (I think it helps with algae only a bit...?) but you have to squeeze out the bad water and roll it onto a different side and re-roll it once in a while. they're REALLY easy to take care of! :lol:

No, while it is a live plant (algae to be exact) it does use ammonia in the water and some of the other baddies. HOWEVER, one moss ball WILL NOT mean you do less water changes. ONE ball will never use the amount of ammonia 10 fish in a 5 gallon produces. For most tanks receiving the proper amount of water changes, a moss ball is just another decoration and should never be considered an alternative to filtering and water changes.

I know, I do water changes normally and I'm going to euthanize my other fish (besides my bettas) soon with clove oil when i get some cause i dont have big enough bags
