floating? o.O
mine doesnt float.
maybe hold it under the water for a bit so they can suck it up?
i got mine at LFS and it was already underwater and sank as soon as i put it in my tank

Mine was shipped to me all the way from Hong Kong (it took a week and a half) so maybe it will sink after it has been in the water for a while.

hi
if you have a small stone,perhaps place it inside the moss ball
to help weigh it down,it shouldn't take too long to sink.

Thank you so much Willow that is a great idea. I have some at home I will bring one tomorrow for the one in the tank here. The other will be going in the tank at home so I will fix it after I get off work tonight.
