Marimo Moss Ball?

I bought 2 of these on Ebay and I recieved them today I really like the dark green color they are. But anyway my questin is how can I stop them from floating?

Kindest Regards,
Amanda

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

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.

Kindest Regards,
Amanda
