It's called hair grass, if I am making the correct guess.

Dwarf Hairgrass - Eleocharis parvula

1 Otos, 6 Guyana Leaf Fish, 2 Malayan Leaf Fish, 1 Orange Head Tapajos, 4 Bronze Cories, 3 Peppered Cories, 2 Panda Cories, 1 Skunk Cory

3 Thread-finned Acara, 1 Jurupari, 1 Spiny Eel, 1 Bristlenose Pleco, 1 Festivum, 1 Spotted Raphael

I think you are referring to Marimo balls and from what I hear, they are easy. You just have to take them out of the tank and give them a bit of a squeeze from time to time. Then they wiill float for a bit and you might have to roll them a bit to reshape them.

i think you can also use the marimo balls to attach it to other things like drift wood. u can also try something like microsword and chain sword.

Hit me up Baby
