Default Marimo Balls, Moss Balls, Aegagropila linnaei, Cladophora aegagropila

Awhile back, I set aside a 25g aquarium for the culture of Marimo Balls,
no fish in it. All the data I have read on them call them slow growing,
and this may be true--in their natural habitat.

But, as necessary, a few drops of Shultz Liquid Fertilizer (10-15-10 and
NO copper), a bit of lime, calcium sulfate, magnesium sulfate,
micro-nutrients (NO copper) and warm water--78-80f, fairly frequent
water changes and they pearl (throw off oxygen bubbles) and grow like
crazy. I tossed some Elodea into the tank and get an inch or two growth
on each strand a day! It is the biggest, stoutest, most beautiful and
healthy looking Elodea I have ever seen ...

Now I am thinking about cultivating the Marimo Balls in a 350g aquarium
and supplying stores in my area. As, only two have them and they $10.00
a piece, for small ones!

Regards,
JS

I checked out ebay for them. They have them there. Some are more
reasonable, even with shipping, then they can be purchased for in my area.

Here is one lady who appears to love them:

Hey, I just say what I have to. Others can do as they please. Do you
expect me to contemplate, react or be lead away from my path by them?

Is this/that how you live? Hell, maybe I am missing something ...

I do ... they do well, the fish do well. However, to grow them, I now
have a 90g tank. However, the only reason for that is I keep nutrient
levels above what I would be comfortable keeping the fish at ... this is
only to speed growth.

So Johynny Boi SMith, do yu feed the hair balls spunk from your daily
wanking feasts or just rely on the skanky nasty crap that washes off
your momma when she gets a bath in that 90 gal; cesspool you call a
tank. What about all the crap that your wife and momma has that won't
was off?

What kind of lighting and nutrients do you use in that 90g? I've noticed
that if I keep mine in a tank with 3.25 WPG (no added nutrients), they get
some green hair algae growing on them but they do very nicely in a tank
that's at 2 WPG (again, no added nutrients).
