  • BRING HOME A LIVE PLANT THAT BENEFITS YOUR AQUARIUM --- The 3 LUFFY Giant Moss Balls are live plants. Fish excreta, debris, phosphate, and ammonia disturbs the natural ecosystem of the water tank. These balls help in creating a thriving atmosphere for the aquatic species.
  • NO SPECIAL FOOD REQUIREMENTS FOR GROWTH --- Both aquatic organisms and marimo moss balls compete for the same nutrients for growth. Marimos leave a limited room for other organisms to thrive. If marimos are floating, rather than settling down, gently squeeze it and pop its air bubble. Release it into the water and you will see them settling down at the bottom of the tank.
  • REAL MARIMOS ARE NOT ALWAYS SPHERICAL & MIGHT HAVE SOME BROWN SPOTS ON THEM --- As you buy LUFFY Giant Marimo Moss Balls, you should be able to differentiate between a real and a fake marimo. The 100% natural 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 is a high chance that they are unnatural and synthetically prepared marimos.
  • ADDS TO THE AESTHETIC BEAUTY & ARE LOW MAINTENANCE --- LUFFY prohibits the usage of dye that imparts artificial green color to the moss balls. Since it distributes non-synthetic marimo moss balls, expect to receive regular/irregular shaped moss balls which are not always in deep green 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 fish such as Koi or goldfish as it’s a tasty snack for them. It’s safe for them, but you don’t want your one pet to eat your plant pet.

Note: When Marimo grows, simply roll the marimo on your palm gently in a circular direction. - Place marimo under indoor lighting/ natural lighting. Keep it away from heat. Avoid direct sunlight.
  • EASY MAINTENANCE --- LUFFY Betta Balls require practically no maintenance. All they need are some light, freshwater, and something to feed off of. Basically, everything you already have in your betta’s tank. The only other additional maintenance is that when you change your betta’s water, you have to give the Betta Balls a squeeze over a sink or bucket to help remove any built-up accumulated over time. When done, simply toss it back in the tank. This will retain the round shape of the balls.

Aquarium Maintenance for Beginners - 6 Great Tips

Keeping aquarium fish is a delightful experience. Taking care of fish is relatively simple; but before purchasing any fish or fish tank, beginners must know everything about fish care and aquarium maintenance.

Here are some great tips on fish care and aquarium maintenance.

1. Observe Your Fish

You must observe your fish everyday. Do they seem happy? Do you notice any changes in their behavior? Fish can easily fall sick if you don't give them the environment they are most comfortable in. Careful observation of your fish will enable you to take better care of their health and well being.

2. Don't Overfeed Your Fish

Feeding your fish everyday is a must; however, avoid overfeeding them. Give them as much as they can consume within the first five minutes of feeding them. Your fish will not eat the extra, leftover food, and this becomes waste at the bottom of their tank. The waste food can increase the level of nitrites in the tank water, which can have adverse effects on the health and well being of your fish.

3. General Tank Maintenance

You don't have to spend too much time and energy on the maintenance of your aquarium; but you must follow some simple steps.

Make sure that all the aquarium filters and lights are functioning perfectly. You should maintain the temperature and the pH of the water in the tank at a particular level suitable for your fish.

Different varieties of fish have different requirements; so find out at your local pet store exactly what sort of environment your fish needs.

4. Clean the Filters Regularly

Aquarium filters gather fish excretion, excess food, and other wastes. They also serve the purpose of aerating your tank and moving oxygen within it.

When the filters get clogged or blocked by waste, the water in the tank becomes smelly and clouded. You must then either clean your filter or replace it depending on the type of filter you have purchased.

5. Cleaning Your Fish Tank

First and foremost, you must unplug all the lights and other aquarium equipment. Without terrifying your fish, clean the walls of the fish tank with a scrubber to remove any signs of algae. Shift the positions of rocks and aquarium adornments and remove any collected debris. Remove the water along with the collected wastes and debris either with a mug or with a vacuum device. Remove dead leaves or branches from your aquarium plants. The external walls of your aquarium must also be well cleaned with a squeegee and clean water. And don't forget to clean the aquarium cover.

6. Treating Tank Water

Tap water should be treated as per the requirements of your fish before you add it into the fish tank. Your local pet store will tell you exactly what your fish requires. Depending on the type of treatment, you might have to keep tap water for an hour or several hours before releasing it into the tank.

So, as you see, taking care of fish is quite easy; you just need to know everything about the care of aquarium fish and follow a few simple tips. You will surely have happy and healthy fish in your aquarium that are a delight to behold.
