I have one of the floating balls of moss and it is tied off about 6 inches from the bottem. the fish seem to like it. One of them (not sure of the type) likes laying on it most of the time. The betta has also rested on it a time or two.

I am not sure what kind of moss balls float. I have the true Marimo balls and they do not float at all. I am thinking that the moss balls you are talking about have a ping pong ball in the center. A lot of places will use these to grow them.

Yep...the ones you find at the pet store are normally java moss that has been grown around a pith ball or something similar.

Unless you really want the sea mine look in your tank...Marimo's are what you should look for.

haha I never thought about the sea mine look. I want to get a couple more so that my betta, and the eel looking thing(I'll look him up after school) have thier own resting spots. Maybe I'll get a sunken ship to complete the mine look
