Plant ID?
Hey guys I am trying to find plants to stock my tank with I was wondering what is the plan than grows along the bottom of your tank and looks like grass? and are they hard to grow? Ive seen them on some of your guys tanks and I love them!!

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.

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.
