STRAIGHT FROM US TO YOU: Other sellers often attempt to sell marimo through fulfillment services that keep your plants in a dark, dry box for 2-5 weeks. If it says "Sold by *** and Fulfilled by ***" under the price, that means the plants are being shipped from a fulfillment center instead of directly from the seller. All the extra time in transit all but guarantees the plants will die in the months following delivery, and is actually illegal since fulfillment services don't have nursery licenses.HIGHEST RATED MARIMO ON AMAZON: Unlike other Marimo, our moss balls go through a 3-step quality control process where we quarantine and treat the Marimo to eradicate potential pests and parasites, carefully grade each Marimo to remove low quality specimens, and then each moss ball is gently hand washed to remove most sand and silt. This ensures our Marimo are free of all the common contaminants and pests included with most Marimo on the market. Our Marimo are sustainably harvested in Europe and are 100% natural with no dye, pesticides, or other contaminants.THE EASIEST LIVE AQUARIUM PLANT: Marimo Moss Balls are without a doubt the easiest live aquarium plant; they require no special aquarium light, CO2 system, or aquarium plant fertilizer. Marimo also remove nitrogen and phosphate from the aquarium, increasing water quality and removing algae by competing with algae for nutrients. Marimo can be kept in nearly any freshwater aquarium that has a temperature of 78f or less. They are particularly useful in shrimp and snail tanks, as the shrimp and snails love grazing on them for biolfilm.BEAUTIFUL AQUARIUM DECORATION: With their deep green color, spherical shape, and easy level of care, Marimo are the perfect live aquarium decoration. Their unique appearance makes them a centerpiece aquarium ornament in any small aquarium, and a wonderful addition to aquarium driftwood, aquarium rocks, and other natural decor of a large aquarium. Marimo are also widely popular for use in terarriums, jars, vases, and other containers. Marimo are a unique wedding gift idea, and they are traditionally given as gifts in Japan to signify love and commitment to a partner.100% MONEY BACK GUARANTEE: We are so sure that you'll be impressed by the quality and value of our Marimo pack that we offer a 100% Money Back Guarantee. If you are unsatisfied with your moss balls for any reason whatsoever, we offer a no questions asked refund policy. Simply return your Marimo through Amazon for a full refund, and you won't even be charged for shipping.
Nice black CT :). As a suggestion, I think he could do better with at least one more plant, with wide leaves that are tall enough to reach just about 1/2 inch below the water surface for him to rest on, and maybe some Marimo moss balls (I recommend https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00I323A0E/ref=s9_acsd_al_bw_c_x_1_w).
Some name ideas:
Midnight, Ninja, Shadow, Zephyr, Nikolai...
Adriano - Dark - Variant of Adrian - Spanish,
Cerin - little dark one - Scottish,
Donahue - Dark warrior - Gaelic,
Kieron- dark - Irish
This is the one I got. It came with more than advertised: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00I323A0E/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_ZR10Cb8R5X20C
You can probably fit around 50 shrimp in there. It depends on the surface area (tank size, decorations, plants, etc.) that the shrimp have to hang on.
I would start with one though to make sure your betta is okay with shrimp. Some are and some aren't. Also, I would get some marimo moss balls for the shrimp to graze on the tiny organisms that live on them. These are the ones I got since they were pretty cheap (I see some in LFS that are $8 each...):
I kind of want to get them.. theres some bad reviews which scare me a bit but 4.1k reviews for 4.5 stars seems good. And the deal itself is pretty good too.
For the gravel I het a $5 discount card since I bought some cat toys, so I got that for $7 from Petco. I would recommend the fluval shrimp stratum though
Then I got this set of marimo balls
Got some pre-filter inlet covers
API Freshwater test kit for $20 from amazon
API GH KH test kit for $8 from amazon
a basic TDS electric meter for $10 from ebay
I got salty shrimp 100 grams for about $20 off ebay
Then I bought a piece of driftwood from the Pet store for $10
I got three java moss balls from the pet store for $6 each
Bought an Anubias plant from the pet store for I believe it was $12
I got 3 amano shrimp and 5 CRS from the pet store, prices vary so check your own pet store.
If you’re going to go with RCS, definitely add some real plants and mosses.
For starters, I highly reconmend this link. I’ve ordered them 3 times, and didn’t receive less then 7-8 moss balls either time. In one order, one of the moss balls grew to the size of a softball. https://i.imgur.com/ruBRGs3.jpg
You can actually pull them apart and attach the moss to rocks or driftwood using super glue, which i did due to running out of space for moss balls. https://i.imgur.com/rDTgJ6Y.jpg
Even if you decide to not get any real plants, this is a great addition to your tank and requires no extra work. Another super easy plant to grow that shrimp loves is hornwort.

It's kind of hit or miss for some people, but it's a good deal. Mine were all big and green.
I bought 6 on amazon for about $10. The company was so nice they actually gave me 2 free moss balls in addition. They came in perfect condition and were as healthy as can be!
Here’s a six pack I found after!
i got a pack of 6 for $12 on amazon, the seller ended up sending me 6 large AND 3 small marimos . i might end up buying another pack since they all look really healthy too
cheap marimos on amazon
Yeah the Marino balls I have are like weird textured. Idk if they are fake I got them from here. www.amazon.com/dp/B00I323A0E?ref=yo_pop_ma_swf
They brake apart so easily and are just kind of not the same texture I got from a pet store. Was looking for not really a carpet type plent but maybe something the cherries can swim through feel like that would make them happy.
I bought these marimo moss balls off Amazon in 2018. They were in great shape, condition (it was cold weather when I purchased them), no snails or pests.
They are a bit more expensive now but mine came with more than 6 in a plastic tub with a little bit of water. Some of them were huge. No problems with them at all until I tried to accidentally kill them with hydrogen peroxide by leaving them in the tank during a spot treatment.
This link May help you find info. This company has a tendency to send extras, too.
It should feel like moss underwater, as opposed to hair. You can also pull off small chunks really easy. They're really hardy plants, so I would worry about how they were shipped.
edit: I'd also returm them on the grounds of improper size/count and get these, these are what I bought. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00I323A0E/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_05CAxbPR2F9ZA
Mine came with some grains of sand on them which I just brushed off.
