I’m sure they could survive it. They’re pretty hardy. But if you’re doing a treatment and have the ability to remove them, I definitely would.

They would probably be fine but if you’re worried, you can just keep the moss ball in a regular cup with tank water while you treat the tank. I had mine in a cup while I treated my tank for a while and that worked for me.

I'm doing what lucky 123 is doing for the past 1 week. They're doing pretty good. Just in case I took them out.

I've had them in brackish water with 5 times the salt of a "treatment" dose and it was fine.

My salinity was 1.005 or around 1.7 tbsp/gal, treatment doses are usually 1 tbsp per 2-3gal.

And your moss ball survived?! wow. What was your tank size? So is it safe to put the marimo moss ball in a 5 gallon fish tank with 1 tbsp per gal treatment with aquarium salt? ???? I don't want my moss balls to die..( also, I have 1 betta in there I am treating with fin rot I think he's getting better)

That's kind of a lot of salt for a betta, but I think it will be fine for at least a few weeks.
