I have been quarantining my Marimo moss balls for a week now and have noticed a lot of these little white and brown pellets? The method I am using right now is changing out the water between tap water and tank water. I noticed a few of these little things when I first bought them but now there is a lot more. The moss ball is also covered in a lot of bubbles if this helps. This is my first tank so i’m pretty much a newbie.

what do they feel like? it's usually just sand.
I think you might be right, there isn’t much left anyway. I have one more question, In the container it leaves a slimy residue stuck to it along with a lot of brown dirt? Is this normal, and will this affect my tanks water quality when I put them in? Thanks

you've gotta rinse them really well in tap water. squeeze them out (gently), get all the muck out. then let them sit in dechlorinated water for about a day.

yeah you gotta squeeze them out though. they absorb gunk. you can squeeze them out underwater.
