Does anyone have much experience with marimo balls (Cladophora aegagropila)?


My LFS has these and they look really cool. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with them. Are they difficult to keep? I appreciate any help. Thanks!

I have had expierience with these plants, there demands are easy! Just need some good lighting and thats about it! They're slow growing, non-evasive, doesn't need constant pruning, a great carpet-plant, very beautiful! It looks just like Java Moss, but in a form of a ball... Smile

oooo...I've been doing my mr.teacher bit on marimo balls in another online forum.

in a nutshell:

they are a higher form of algae, and thrive in hard water with plent of light and nutrients. they are best placed in a water flow so they can tumble about a bit, and are quite good, if added in a tank from day one, at keeping excess nutrients down.

give me a PM with any questions you want to know, and I'll share my (as someone else once said, disturbing large) knowledge with you.
