Since we sell 100% natural and pesticide-free marimos, sometimes there might be a few brown spots here and there. Do not consider them damaged or unnatural because just like organic food, real marimos cannot be perfect. A few brown spots just show that the product is natural. Give them proper care and if in a few days, the balls are not healthy green, please write to us and we will send you a free replacement immediately, no questions asked.
The benefits of adding Marimo Moss Balls in the aquarium are plenty. They absorb all the toxic and algae breeding wastes and dead matter including nitrites, nitrates, ammonia and phosphate. The LUFFY Marimo Moss Balls also do not require constant attention. In fact, they are very low maintenance live plant. Your shrimps and snails love feeding on the green ball.
You may also make use of the LUFFY Marimo Moss Balls as a decorative item in social events or for the purpose of gifting.
Please note that sometimes marimo balls trap air bubble inside which causes them to float. In such a situation, gently squeeze the marimo and pop the air bubble. Release it into the water and you will see them settling down at the bottom of the water tank.
Note : Since we will send you a live product and it travels a long distance to reach you, give it a gentle wash before using for the first time. Also, in the rarest case of you receiving the product in an unsatisfactory condition owing to bad weather or delay, write to us for a free reshipment or refund. We will solve the issue immediately.

David Alderton’s investigation of anabantoids, the Asiatic gouramisthe bettas and gouramis, including Siamese fighting fish, paradisefish, kissing gouramis, begins with a look at the origins of these adaptable and widely varying fishes in their Asiatic homelands, where they’ve been popular for hundreds of years. Given the considerable size range of this group of fishes, from the tiny licorice gourami (only 1.5 in or 4 cm in length) to the giant gourami (about 28 in or 70 cm), there are great differences to be considered by the fish keeper, all of which are addressed by Alderton in this color guide. The anabantoids is also a large group of fishes, with one hundred varieties/species available in most pet and hobby stores. The book provides photographs and images of dozens of the most popular examples.
Chapter two is devoted to The Different Groups,” and the author explains how the classifications of anabantoids work and then proceeds to discuss the members of each family. In all, eighteen genuses are described in detail, including their natural ranges, physical characteristics, abilities, behaviors, and breeding facts. The author discusses the specific traits of the anabantoids, including their unique labyrinth organs, swim bladders, hearing ability, lateral line, and locomotion.
The section on care discusses the selection and positioning of the aquarium, planting, flooring, water, filtration, heating, and lighting. The guide gives specific advice on feeding habits and food, including foraging and hunting techniques of certain anabantoids and the various kinds of food (prepared diets, green food, live food) that are best for individual species.
For readers interested in breeding bettas and gouramis, the chapter on reproduction will prove exceptionally helpful, giving expert guidance on preparing for and encouraging spawning behavior, nest building, and rearing the fry. The author also provides information on color genetics for breeding Betta splendens.
The general health of the Asian gouramis is covered in a chapter called Lifespan and Diseases,” including a primer on preventing and managing parasitic illness, bacterial and fungal diseases, dietary problems, and more. In the book’s final chapter Popular Anabantoids,” the author presents a full-page of text and photographs for twenty-six different species of the families Belontiidae, Anabantidae, Osphronemidae, Helostomatidae, and Luciocephalidae. Resources and glossary conclude the volume.
