Cute and soft

Fantastic plant. You can use plenty of these for the bottom or have them place in containers and surround your aquarium with it. These moss balls are good in absorbing nitrates. Makesure you wash them with your fishwater from time to time and roll them on your palm to keep them clean and in shape. Use cold water.Easy to maintain. Shrimps , small corys and octocinlus will love to nimble on it from time to time. They will die and turn yellow if they are not maintain well enough.Too much light can turn it brown.To rejuvenate them., you can place them in a tub of cold water.I use ice cubes.Good also for nano tanks.
