Default Re: Moss Balls, Yay or Nay?

I like them, as an addition to the tank, but they aren't everything. I have 4 Marimo balls. My axie likes to sit on them and push them around. They do collect a lot of dirt so I squeeze clean them when I'm doing a water change. I have been guilty of using them as sponges when cleaning the tank. While they don't grow fast, they are also very hard to kill, and somehow stay bright green and fluffy in a room with almost no light. My axie prefers to climb on moss or leafy plants, but those are harder to keep looking nice, and occasionally need to be replaced.
