What Is Marimo?
Where do Marimo Moss Balls come from?
Marimo is Aegagropila linnaei, part of the Cladophoraceae family of filamentous green algae which occurs in certain northern hemisphere lakes. Marimo are green "moss balls", algae that grows into a spherical shape and forms colonies. They can be found in Scotland, Iceland, Japan, and Estonia.
Marimo grow under low-light conditions, and they do not survive freezing. By adding the Marimo Moss Balls to your pond or aquarium, they will consume the nutrients that more troublesome forms of algae would normally eat. This aids in the natural control of green water.
