What is a giant marimo moss ball?
Three times larger than the nano, the Luffy Giant Marimo Moss Balls have already aged about seven years and reached sizes of between 1.5”-2.0” (4-5cm) before it arrives at your home. This rare, organically spherical aquatic plant is actually an algae, not moss, and has a natural habitat rolling around on the bottom of freshwater lakes. With ideal conditions, these exotic plants can live for up to an impressive 100 years.

How does marimo filter my aquarium water?
Fish and other marine life produce ammonia when they excrete their waste and over time this ammonia and other pollutants like nitrates and phosphates build up in the water and cause stress to the fish and nitrate poisoning. Luffy Giant Marimo Moss Balls act as biological filters that suck up the debris and other unwanted chemical compounds in the water. If you have enough marimos in the tank, they make a complete water cycle naturally. So you can go months WITHOUT ANY WATER CHANGE and the ammonia and nitrite levels will still be in control and your fish and aquatic pets will still be healthy.

What other benefits are there to use marimos?
Like other plants, marimo moss balls absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen through the process of photosynthesis. Also, because marimo is an algae, it prevents other excess algae from growing in your fish tank by absorbing all the nutrients that these intruders need to survive. By growing marimo in your tank, can naturally maintain healthy ammonia and nitrate levels for months without any water change saving you time and energy.

What do I do when my marimo first arrives?
As your Luffy Giant Marimo Moss Balls have traveled a long distance to reach you, give them a quick rinse before placing them into your tank or aquarium. The marimo balls will absorb water and fall to the bottom; if your marimo are floating, gently squeeze the air out and they will naturally begin to sink.
  • ABSORBS NUTRIENTS NEEDED BY OTHER ALGAE --- Although commonly referred to as a moss, marimo is actually an algae. Because the Luffy Giant Marimo Moss Balls absorb all nutrients that other algae need to live, having marimo in your aquarium will prevent excess algae from growing. Without all kinds of unwanted algae cluttering up your fish tank, you will spend less time changing your water and more time enjoying your entertaining marine life.

  • EXOTIC, ALL NATURAL AQUARIUM DECORATION --- Along with being a highly beneficial addition to your fish tank and the health of your fish, the brightly colored Luffy Giant Marimo Moss Balls also add a vibrant beauty and natural cheerfulness to the underwater atmosphere. Practical with many environmental adaptations, marimo looks and works great in all types of freshwater habitats such as shrimp tanks, fishbowls and decorative glass vessels.

  • LARGE SURFACE AREA FOR HEALTHY BACTERIA TO RESIDE --- Growing at about 5 mm per year when properly cared for, these plants can live for as long as a century. Once placed in your fish tank, they immediately begin to filter out the ammonia, phosphates and other debris in your aquarium water. The larger surface area of the marimo provides more space for healthy bacteria to live; this helpful bacteria is necessary to maintain optimal chemical amounts in your fish tank's water.

  • LOW MAINTENANCE, BIOLOGICAL FILTER SYSTEM --- Generally, easy to care for Luffy Giant Marimo Moss Balls require biweekly water changes and that's about it. But if you keep enough of them in the tank, not even water changes are required. These versatile 1.5" (4cm) round aquatic plants thrive in room water temperature with indirect sunlight. Tap water is perfect for marimo as they need the minerals that are stripped from filtered water.

  • PREVENTS NITRATE POISONIG CAUSED BY AMMONIA --- All fish produce ammonia in their solid waste which is discharged through their gills. Over time, this ammonia can build up to toxic levels, eventually causing nitrate poisoning and even death. Charming and productive Luffy Giant Marimo Moss Balls absorb pollutants like nitrates and ammonia and contributes to maintaining healthy nitrogen and phosphate levels in your aquarium water.
