Moss Balls, also referred to as Marimo Moss Balls, originate from Japan.  Actually, while they are referred to as moss balls in the aquarium hobby, they are a type of non-invasive algae   These plants are favorite of many aquarists because of their unique spherical shape and ease of maintenance.  They do not require fertilization nor strong light and will thrive in clean water.  As part of your regular maintenance routine, you may want to rinse them carefully to remove accumulated debris.  Moss Balls grow rather slowlybut may reach up to 5 inches when fully grown.

    They were pretty small but very healthy. They looks really nice in my aquariums.

    I was tired of buying stuff from the pet stores in my area in St. Charles MO. I tried to buy online through Amazon and was never really impressed with many of the plants I paid for. I found this store in New York with good reviews on their plants and went for it! I am very impressed with their directions on doing a quick bleach dip before putting the plants in your tank. I have not found any snails or any critters in my tank (awesome). I did find some when cleaning them/dipping them beforehand so it is really important to read their instructions! The plant is doing well and I have had it a week. I did not see how to pick a size for the Moss Ball but I think $6.95 is a little steep for the small moss ball I received, but it is doing it’s job and I am sure it will grow

    These moss balls are the cutest things ever!

    I already had 5 moss balls so I ordered these 2 for my daughter's tank. She thought they were cute too, and when I told her about how healthy they were for the tank, and for her fish, she just had to have some too.

    I ordered a large moss ball since I was uncertain what I would receive. Since it was my first time receiving one, I was surprised at it's "small size," but now feel that it's the perfect size for my 5 gallon tank. The moss ball has deepened in color, and looks better every week.
