moss ball, ive always wanted one, never had the will to pay 15 bucks for one. 5 is a fair price i think (for in the store) for a 1.5" diameter ball.

im hoping my lighing is good enough. 18W t5 6500k (single) in my 29g. yell at me if you want but it was an impulse buy as i havent researched it too well lol. the person did say my barbs might pick at it and gave me some advise saying my lighting should be fine with it.

Marimo "moss" balls aren't really moss... they are a special form of algae.
