  • BRING HOME A LIVE PLANT THAT BENEFITS YOUR AQUARIUM --- The 2 LUFFY Moss Balls are live plants that absorb fish excreta, debris, and other materials that disturb the aquatic water chemistry. If the marimo moss ball is present in the water tank, they suck the gunk and goop. These balls thus, help in creating a thriving atmosphere for the aquatic species.
  • NO EXCESSIVE GROWTH OF UNINVITED GUESTS --- The marimo moss balls compete for the same food for growth as likely to be consumed by the scum. Due to their absorbing capability, they leave a scant room for the gunk to thrive. Consequently, the 2 LUFFY Marimo Moss Balls make it impossible for unwelcome goop from growing back.
  • REAL MARIMOS ARE NOT ALWAYS SPHERICAL & MIGHT HAVE SOME BROWN SPOTS --- As you buy LUFFY Marimo Moss Balls, you should be able to differentiate between a real and a fake marimo. A genuine marimo will not always be spherical in shape or lush green in color. It is perfectly ok to have some brown spots. However, if you do find sparkling green and perfectly spherical marimos, there are high chances that they are unnatural and cultured marimos.
  • ADD TO THE AESTHETIC BEAUTY & ARE LOW MAINTENANCE --- LUFFY hinders the usage of dye that imparts artificial green color to the moss balls. Since we believe in selling genuine marimo moss balls to our customers, expect to receive regular/irregular shaped moss balls which are not always in deep green in color. Undoubtedly, the marimo moss balls add to the aesthetic beauty of the aquarium and are low maintenance. They simply require some light and freshwater.
  • SNAIL-PROOF AND LOVED BY SHRIMPS --- Some snails love to feed on live plants, but when it comes to the LUFFY marimo moss balls, they nibble or eat food off it just like a shrimp. Shrimps, on the other hand, gorge on the green stuff and munch on any particle they like. We recommend keeping the marimo moss balls away from fishes such as Koi or goldfish as it’s a tasty snack for them. It’s completely okay, but you don’t want your one pet to eat your plant pet.

Items Needed to Setup a Saltwater Fish Tank

There are a number of items that you need to set up a saltwater fish tank. You will need more items than you would if you were setting up a freshwater fish tank.

You will first want to purchase an entire setup. It's much easier than purchasing everything piece by piece because there will be items that you will not be able to find such as glass tops. You will need a completely different lighting system unless you purchase a saltwater setup. Take into account that a good lighting system will cost you at least $150 for any fish tank. You might want to purchase a saltwater setup that comes with the light so that you don't have to search around for the lighting system online.

You will need to purchase the tank, the stand, glass tops or a lid and the lighting system for starters. Once you have all of those items you will want to purchase a heater for your tank. You will want to make sure that the water temperature stays at a steady level. Purchase a heater that will work for the aquarium that you are going to purchase. You will need to know how many gallons the tank is. You will also want to purchase a canister filter for the tank size as well. The canister filter will cost you at least $80 or $100. Canister filters will flow more water per hour and keep your coral alive because coral needs a good amount of water movement.

Now you will have the tank, stand, lid, light, heater, and canister filter. You will now need to purchase some substrate or rock for your tank. You can purchase live sand which is great and it helps to kick off your beneficial bacteria colony and it also helps to establish your fish tank. You will also want to purchase cured live rock. You can purchase this from the pet store or you can purchase it online. Remember that you cannot place any fish in your tank until your tank has been set up for at least 30 days.
