$16.50 USD This aquarium has been featured on Etsy blog! Thanks so much for the love and support:D Here's a cute Marimo moss ball aquarium. The Marimo can be your cute and easy-to-take-care-of pet and the aquarium can be a great home table or office desk decoration! It's also a unique gift idea!:) Marimo ball is a live green algae, which naturally forms a cute round shape. It will grow bigger slowly over time. It gets its name from Mari meaning "ball" in Japanese and "mo" meaning algae in Japanese. Japanese people consider Marimo ball as a National Treasure and believe that it will bring good luck, so it's very popular in Japan. Also, in Iceland it is believed that if you take good care of Marimo ball, it will “make your wishes come true”. One very interesting fact about Marimo is that it sinks or floats freely due to its interaction with water and air. So if you see it float sometimes, that means it's just having fun with the nature! There's almost no maintenance for this Marimo guy.... ‎- silpol
