The moss ball is a bizarre aquarium novelty that is actually a well behaved type of filamentous green algae! Also called "marimo" in aquascaping circles after a well known Japanese botanist - marimo is Japanese for balls that grow in water. Moss balls are a must for tanks with fancy shrimp and and nano aquariums and look great with betta and goldfish bowls. The balls with grow quite large if the conditions are right.
