Hi Kim!

Yes, moss balls do grow but they grow very slowly. What kind of plant food are you trying for your sword plant? Remember not to over feed the plant but, yes, using plant food is safe for Bettas.

Remember that sword plants like a lot of light but moss balls don't. Just something to keep in mind:)

I've had my moss ball for 6+ months and I don't think it's grown at all

It takes moss balls a really long time to grow; sometimes years:)

I put a moss ball in my bettas tank and I love it! They look so great don't they? I have only had mine for a short time so I guess I wont see any growth for a long time! :D

Hi Kim!

Marimo Moss Balls are very cool! They require very little care. When you get them, rinse them off in tap water and squeeze the water out of them. Place them in a jar of tap water for two weeks. During that time, you can take it out, rinse it off and squeeze it again. You can also do water changes to the jar. If no worms appear, you can put them in with your Betta.

Can these be used in a small tank, like 2 gallons, or only in large tanks?

You can use the moss balls in low-volume tanks, so long as you have room. Some people even keep them in 1 gallon tanks with their fish. A 2-gallon tank is probably more practical though, depending on how large of a moss ball you get.
