FAQs

Artificial moss balls are usually made with a soft plastic ball covered in synthetic hair. The plastic can be quite obvious. Although they are similar in appearance, original Marimo have very different characteristics from these modified replicas. These are usually balls of other species of algae or Java moss manually forced or even stitched into a round shape. You can change the shape of a real Marimo by rolling it between your hands. For example, if it’s lopsided you should be able to roll it into a more perfect ball. When placed in the tank for the first time, a real Marimo will usually float for a while before eventually sinking to the bottom. It won’t float again until the water is squeezed out of it.

Yes, this is a very normal situation. Most of the time, your marimo will sink under the water. However, if sufficient light sources provided and the marimo will perform photosynthesis, the large amount of oxygen bubbles inside the marimo will assist it to float up. Another situation is that your marimo performing photosynthesis with a lot of bubbles surrouding it but still sink at the bottom, this is due to the insufficient of bubbles to bring up the heavy marimo.
