Description

Chladoflora (marimo moss ball) is an unusual aquarium plant that is extremely easy to keep in tropical environments. Create a fetching look by scattering about the aquarium in clusters.

Needing virtually no attention, these attractive plants look great in any aquarium and are particularly popular with shrimp keepers. Shrimp will love to hop on them and spend hours cleaning away! This velvety, aquarium plant is on average 2-3cm. The picture shows 3 moss balls so if you wanted 3, you would need to add that number to your shopping cart.

Tip: If you moss balls are floating, give them a gentle squeeze under water so any air within them is squeezed out and replaced with water.

I am very happy with my purchase despite being surprised by how big the marimo are! I don’t think I can have read the dimensions. I purchased the plants after buying a marimo terrarium kit on amazon only to find the marimo was most likely a ball of felt. The plants I received from aqua essentials are lovely and cheerful, healthy and not quite perfectly spherical. They are very pleasing to look at and make me smile.

Product arrived well packed in excellent condition. They look great in my aquarium and my Amano shrimp enjoy foraging for food in them. They haven't been in the aquarium long enough to affecf nitrate levels yet so I can't comment on that at the time of writing this review.
