Moss Balls???

Hi, I'd love to have live plants in my tank but my goldfishautolinker.com autolinking image eat them as fast as I can put them in. So, I'm wondering about the possibility of moss balls? Do you think the fish will leave them alone or will they just eat them up too?

Thanks in advance

Re: Moss Balls???

goldfishautolinker.com autolinking image tend to be incompatible when it comes to live plants. Whether you have live plants or not. They will eat them, uproot them and just destroy aquascapes.

Mossballs are a bit different. The whole plant is like a mini ecosystem therefore there is no need for it to be rooted. I assume goldfishautolinker.com autolinking image WILL pick at it, but I dont know if they will kill it completely.

Again, goldfish and plants or decorations dont really go well together.

Re: Moss Balls???

Hey, thanks for your reply. Yeah, that's what I have heard about goldfishautolinker.com autolinking image. They tear the place up. I guess the only plants that might be different are java fern as they're supposed to not taste good to the fish. Then again, it may depend on how hungry they are. Never met a goldfishautolinker.com autolinking image that didn't think it was hungry though. Good thing they have plastic plants I guess. :o)

Yeah, typically goldfishautolinker.com autolinking image are just kept in tanks with substrate and some rocks here and there. I haven't really seen them be kept in fully decorated tanks unless they are yet to grow their full size.
