About this item Hi I'm your new Marimo Japanese Cladophora Ball or Moss Ball English I am a rare algae growth that only forms in a few lakes in Iceland Scotland Japan and Estonia Many cultures consider me good luck l'm very easy to care for Just place me in a container with tap water and change it every one or two weeks Please rinse anything you add to my container to keep my home clean You don't need to feed me I don't require anything but low light and clean water to live Please don't put me in direct sunlight We don't get much of that on the lake floor so I don't like it I am most comfortable in normal to low household lighting The gentle lake currents give me my beautiful round shape If you gently swirl my water every once in a while that would be great As a special treat you could even take me out and gently roll me across your palm I sink or float depending on my mood oxygen produced by the photosynthesis moves me up and down If turn brown you can help me by replacing my water squeezing me under running water to wash out any dirt and adding about 5% table salt to my water I will recover quickly Also a night in the fridge is like a week at the spa for me as I prefer cold water I can live up to 200 years and grow about5cm per year Thanks for being so kind to me Now I'm going to get to work being awesome kaijutegu hotbabespaghetti This is probably the cutest This is the perfect pet for people who want to keep a small container of water with something pretty in it Even though it’s a plant and not a fish it’s way cuter than a sad cramped betta- and less maintenance too A marimo is perfect for that pretty aesthetic or your college dorm room Want a mason jar aquarium? A marimo will be perfectly happy in there Want a fishbowl with pretty rocks? Get a marimo or even a few of them! I can’t overstate how wonderful and cute marimo are Meme
