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

Dwarf Hairgrass - Eleocharis parvula

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.

Cool

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.
