Moss balls (Cladophora aegagropila)
|Height:||3 - 10+|
3 moss balls
The name tells you pretty much all you need to know. Balls, they look like moss, in dfact they're kind of algae, but don't worry, they're a good sort of algae, the sort that suck sup all the nutrients the other algaes need. This means you get a clearer tank, less stress, and a little ball of green goodness rolling round in your water.
Even better keep them in good conditions and they'll pup, which means another ball will split, off, but pupping sounds so much better.
Moss balls, weird little balls that form in the depths of lakes, are native to the UK, although nowhere is clean enough for them to form those lovely balls, and are protected as cultural icons in Japan. Grab yours now.
