Yeah, I'm not sure about having a marimo ball. It's just balled up cladophora algae. However, if algae does begin to grow in there, I'm likely to let it go, as they consume excess nutrients/waste, as well. Hell, maybe that's the way to go... have an algae refugium. lol

I like your thinking. There was an article I read quite a while ago about algae cleaning up a lake, by pretty much covering introduced mussels. I'll find it... Here it is: http://www.glwi.uwm.edu/research/aqu...gy/cladophora/
Pretty cool article w/ good information. If you scroll down a bit, you can see the vast difference in water quality the introduced algae made. There's a before and after pic.
I actually think something like this would be worth a test, at least. It's the cheapest and probably one of the better routes to take. Algae does consume toxins relatively quickly, sometimes out-competing other plants. It would act as an algae scrubber, too, keeping algae out of the main tank (I would think), as I do still want live plants in the main tank and will be fertilizing it.
