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.

Small, but reduced price was very good for moss balls so no complaints

Healthy moss balls, looked good on arrival and are still going strong in a tank with three goldies! I bought two, left on as is and broke the other into three setions to stick to wood and it didn't harm it at all. Not sure I could warrant paying the full price for a plant this size on my budget but at the current sale price of a quid each they are well worth it!

I really think the price is far too high for such a small ball of moss.

Good bargain buy although my shrimp haven't bothered them so far!

All plants from this supplier arrive in excellent condition. Small golf sized balls that fill a small corner of my tank beautifully.

Excellenty packaged and prompt delivery. Arrived golf ball sized and gave them a rinse before placing them in my nano aquarium. The look great.

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
