So I have had the worst luck with Marimo. They keep turning brown!!! This one is about 3 inches big so it's a pretty large marimo. My water temps run about 78 degrees. No fish are picking on it either. I read that brown means not enough light so I rotated it so the brown is facing my lamp but it's not working. My other plants are fine.

What kind of light do you have, and how close to the light is your moss ball? Light that is too intense or direct can burn them, causing the brown spots.

You should squeeze them out into old aquarium every few weeks, this will keep them green and healthy
