Marimo moss ball care guide

Light Requirements:

Marimo’s do best in low to medium light. They initially grew in the depths of the cold lakes, so the less light the better. 

They have to kept away from even the slight of direct light and sun as this will cause damaged to the filaments.  

Watering needs:

The water in the bowl will need to be changed at least once a week. Regular tap water is fine, however you should let the tap water stand for at least 24 hrs. 

As a treat, once every few week you can add in a can of soda / carbonated water. 

You can also rince the your marimo ball under a take and roll him gently between the palm of your hand to help him keep his shape. 

He is floating?

It’s quite possible that your Marimo ball will have an air bubble trapped inside that is causing them to float!

You can gently squeeze him to pop the air bubble. However you will find that he will sink to the bottom of their tank within 1-2 days.

Browning

If your marimo turn brown, make sure to move him to a cooler location with less light. They may recover and turn green again on their own. If not, you may add a tiny amount of aquarium ocean salt.
For a spoil every week or two you can add in ice blocks or put him in the fridge for 24 hrs.  It  may seem a little weird but he will definitely enjoy the cool!
