My moss balls are unballing! How do I save them? Future care taking to keep them in balls?
You can't save them now, but you can take the scraps and affix them to your hardscape. I keep mine intact by squeezing the dirt out of them and putting them in the fridge overnight, every now and then.
What do yoy mean by unballing. true marimo balls are a type of algae not moss.
To keep them in balls I would very gently squeeze them into tank water, and then again gently roll them around in your hand.
They are unballing by falling apart and chunks are coming out
Where did you get them from?
The only thing i can think off is something your dosing yoir tank with is killing it. I cant think of any other reason chunks wpuld be falling off it. What are you dosing your tank with?
I'm not dosing it with anything, could my oranda goldfish be picking them apart cause I know they like to eat at plants?
This happens overtime with moss balls if you aren't rolling them in your hands, but the goldfish picking at it is a possibility. I would try what I said to do with moss balls, and do it every water change.
Too funny, I was about to ask you about your stocking... for sure the Goldie's are munching on it...
