Actually it was Larry who disappeared! I feel silly, it was tucked under the heater. How it rolled under there from 5 inches away without fish in there is beyond me!

Thumbs up A treasure

I have 5 of them, they simply look great and are easy to care for. Give them plenty of light and they will be happy. They are algae (good kind), strange if you think about that. Have heard they are considered a national treasure in Japan. Totally cool.

Supposedly they move by themselves in their natural habitat. Something to do with light levels and/or giving off oxygen.

Never seen it myself though.

Actually, where they come from there are currents that keep the balls moving almost constantly. This ensures they keep their round shape.

I have a moss ball, and my ghost shrimp love climbing on it and keeping it clean for me. It makes a great conversation piece. It is quiet funny to think that algae is normally our enemy, but in this case it is our friend.

Awesome. I have to tell my kids. They think I'm nuts! Lol. They also said they'd hold "the great moss ball mystery" over my head for eternity.
