Marimo Moss Balls grow by absorbing nitrates, phosphates, and other organic waste from the water. As they grow they purify the water they live in and provide oxygen for freshwater aquarium fish that live with them. Marimo require no care whatsoever in an aquarium, they are the easiest aquarium plant in the world. Moss Ball doesn't required green thumb and it is not a high maintenance plants.

This velvety green orb is neither a moss nor plant, but a species of green algae known as Aegagropila linnaei that gets its unique shape from tumbling about the bottom of freshwater lakes. The nickname “marimo” roughly translates from Japanese as “water plant that’s kind of like a bouncy ball.”

We recommended lightly rolling the marimo ball in your hands every time you do a water change so that it won’t lose its shape. Also, flip it around occasionally so that all parts of the algae get access to light and won’t start browning.
