marimo moss balls

Something to consider; I have 6 marimos in a 55 gal. 3 came from a LFS that kept them in their tanks, the other 3 from a LFS that kept them in seperate cups (like Betta cups). The 3 that were kept in cups have done WONDERFULLY!! Doubled in size quickly, and VERY lush and green. The others have hardly grown, and are more of a brownish-green. My tank is low tech, no CO2, low light. IMO Marimos are a beautiful addition to any aquaria and I would not go without them. So, to sum it up, give them another try, but be aware of how and where you buy them from.....

They sit on the bottom looking smug... that's all I can think of for a benefit.

Had one, now I don't have one. They look so out of place in a planted tank.... maybe pop them into the filter as a live media.

I did find that they did much better in a cold water setup with or without lots of light.
