What are nano marimo moss balls? Vibrant green, all natural aquatic plants that shrimp love to interact with and look great in contrast to brightly colored shrimp, marimo moss balls are a beautiful, rare type of algae that require very minimal maintenance. In Japan, these plants are so special that they are viewed as a treasure and are treated as pets. For shrimp breeders, nano marimo moss balls are a must-have in their tanks. The nano balls are smaller than the traditional marimo balls making them the perfect size for shrimp tanks.
How do I use nano shrimp balls? Your Luffy Nano Marimo Moss Balls have travelled a long distance to reach you; give them a quick rinse before adding them to your shrimp community. Drop as many shrimp balls into your tank as you see fit. To maximize the awesome benefits of your shrimp balls, you will want to use at least five nano marimo balls for every gallon of aquarium water. Ensure that the shrimp tank water is room temperature and not under direct sunlight. Your pet shrimp will take to them almost immediately and begin entertaining themselves by bouncing them about and nibbling on these nutritious aquatic plants.
Why do shrimp love Luffy nano marimo moss balls so much? When you first add marimo moss balls to your shrimp tank, they will float at the top while they absorb water. Eventually the moss balls will sink to the bottom, but if you want to encourage the process, give them a gentle squeeze. Crystal red shrimp, amano, ghost, cherry red and other dwarf shrimp love to play with these small, lightweight marimo moss balls as they float down. On the ground, the shrimp will push around the moss balls and sometimes hide behind them to take a nap. Over time, the moss balls will collect debris and nutrients creating a delicious and healthy smorgasbord of green algae for your shrimp to munch on.
SMALL IN SIZE, BIG IN BENEFITS --- All live plants are highly advantageous for shrimp tanks, but it is important to find just the Right aquatic plants. Luffy Nano Marimo Moss Balls are perfect for dwarf shrimp and crayfish because of their non-threatening size of 0.6" (1.5cm) in diameter, and their incredible benefits to both the shrimp and the water. These exotic spherical plants do everything from entertain your pet shrimp to absorb harmful toxins and nitrates present in your aquarium water.
LONG LASTING NATURAL CHARM --- Naturally smaller in size, the organically beautiful Nano Marimo Moss Balls will remain small in size for many years to come. Growing at a very slow rate of only 5 mm (0.2") each year, these exquisite aquatic plants have an impressive lifespan of over 100 years when taken care of properly. Along with adding charm and beauty to your shrimp tank, your pet shrimp will have live companionship throughout its entire lifetime.
EASY TO CARE FOR WITH MINIMAL MAINTENANCE --- Just as appropriate for starting out with your very first shrimp tank, as they are for an expert with multiple shrimp breeding aquariums, these low maintenance aquatic plants take up little of your time and even less energy. The only requirements to care for the amazingly resilient Luffy Nano Shrimp Balls are room temperature water, indirect sunlight, occasional water changes and a gentle squeeze every now and then.
ABSORB HARMFUL TOXINS & PROVIDE OXYGEN --- Similar to other aquatic plants, marimo balls absorb certain substances and suck up CO2 while releasing much needed oxygen into your aquarium water. Natural waste and byproducts from your shrimp may be harmless in small doses, but if you are breeding and have numerous shrimp in a tank, an abundance of nitrates can stress and possibly kill your shrimp. Moss balls are miniature filters that suck up debris and toxins such as ammonia and phosphates.
HELP PREVENT UNWANTED ALGAE GROWTH --- There is no better way to combat algae than with algae. Marimo moss balls are not really moss, but an algae that requires all of the same nutrients as other undesirable types of algae. Because your bright green Luffy Nano Marimo Moss Balls are sucking up all of the necessary nutrients, invasive algae will not be able to survive in your shrimp tank. The nano shrimp balls help eliminate current algae and prevent new algae from growing back.

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. I'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 I 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 about .5cm per year. Thanks for being so kind to me. Now I'm going to get to work being awesome!

To add a strikingly beautiful note to a pond or a water garden, plant Iris Acorus Calamus Variegatus among the other plants along the shallow borders. While the majority of the other water plants are best-known for their colorful or unusually-shaped flowers, Iris Acorus Calamus Variegatus is all about foliage! Iris-like and sword-shaped, the leaf blades are bright green with a creamy white stripe running slightly off-center. The plant is also known as "Sweet Flag," probably because when the leaves are bruised or crushed they produce a sweet, tangerine-like fragrance.
