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.

SMALLER than I thought they would be. My plecos seems to have eaten one of them already, very expensive pleco food as it would appear. Otherwise the one that remains looks very nice.

Lovely deep green little balls of moss. Great for shrimps to forage in! Arrived in perfect condition. Extremely well packaged to protect them from other heavy items in the parcel...

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.

Ask a question about this product
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



Do i need to filter the water or have a moving current to keep them?



Is there likely to be snails or snail eggs on them? I don't want my tank to get over run
