Moss Ball


Cladophora aegagropila also know as a marimo ball or moss ball is actually a slow-growing algae. Don't' worry, it will not cause algae to grow in your tank, in fact, moss balls take an extremely long time to form. Moss balls grow at a rate of 5mm per year. 

Marimo balls originate from very cold rivers and lakes in Northern Europe and Japan. Our moss balls range in size from 3-4cm - 10cm (sometimes larger). Moss balls make an excellent addition to any aquascape and are a favorite among betta fish.

moss balls

I love them, the fish don't seem to mind them in the tank and I'm sure someone might snack on those.

I was pleased when I got them and they were bigger than I thought they were going to be. They are exactly what I needed
