Live Moss Balls: A Thriving Addition to Your Aquarium

Enhance your aquarium’s beauty and ecosystem with live moss balls, nature’s unique and beneficial underwater wonders. These captivating moss spheres, scientifically known as Cladophora glomerata, are not just visually appealing but also serve as a valuable addition to your aquatic environment.

These decorative moss balls, scientifically known as Cladophora aegagropila, are actually a type of algae that naturally forms into spheres 3-10 cm wide in shallow lakes due to wave action. Unlike most algae, they’re beneficial for aquariums, improving water quality. To maintain their round shape, simply rotate them occasionally. Interestingly, you can propagate them by dividing them, and the pieces will eventually become new balls or form a carpet-like growth if attached to rocks or roots. In some parts of Japan, these unique algae balls are even protected.
