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 3-4cm. 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.

Very pleased with healthy mossballs and prompt delivery. Mossballs are doing well in my low light fishtank. Goldfish seem to like them but don't eat them!

I bought 7 Marimo balls, to sit at the front of my tank where the action is - directly under where the food falls as I believe Marimo need a little movement to keep them round and healthy; my catfish roll them about shuffling underneath them for food and I'm delighted to say they really suit the skittish, swishy disturbances that my big Silver Dollars make, thankfully they don't attempt to eat them either:)

I bought 7 Marimo balls, to sit at the front of my tank where the action is - directly under where the food falls, I did this because I've read that Marimo balls are round because in their natural environment they jiggle backwards and forwards in the waves at the shallow edges of lakes and that if they get stuck they may lose their shape and stagnate, so I'm pleased to say my catfish shuffle them about nicely and I'm delighted to say they really really suit the skittish swishy disturbances that my Silver Dollars make, they don't attempt to eat them either, which is a relief! I give the Marimo a little rinse and a gentle roll in my hands at water change time to help them stay fresh and plump and then cluster them back together into the action area. I'm very pleased with them!

Does this plant need liquid fertilisers? Thanks.


So you don't have to have special conditions or anything?


Nope! They need very little in order to survive.

how quick do they grow?


Not that fast - in fact quite slowly...

my moss balls are floating will thay sink


Give them a good squeeze underwater and they will sink

Do moss balls need replacing after a certain amount of time or do they continue to grow and absorb nitrates?


They continue to grow

If I broke the moss balls up to make a moss carpet would it die?



Could I tie this to shrimp tubes with your clear thread to make a carpet?



Will these survive in a temperate aquarium without any heating in the tank - tank is in a living room which is always warm
