    HOW TO MAKE IT!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

    so again, CAN YOU TEACH US HOW TO MAKE IT??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

    So how do you clean this?

    It's algae, but most people call it a moss ball. You can get them at petco and petsmart now, but I've never seen them so small!

    so...how do you make it, may i ask?

    if I have a bigger bulb can I put a smal snail?

    thaks

    I had never heard of a marimo ball before either, so I googled it. On Wiki, there is a section that says if you grow your marimo ball in club soda, it grows faster. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marimo

    So cute! Where do you get the marimo ball?
