Marimo (Aegagropila linnaei) These spherical cuties are a form of fresh water string algae and can be found in just two places in the world – a lake in Japan and another in Iceland!

They grow very slowly at an average rate of just 1 – 2 cm per year but in ideal conditions can grow boulder sized and live to be over
100 years old!

When in groups marimo will exhibit “social” behavior such as rolling towards one another and floating at the surface of the water called “playing”

Marimo can live in any fresh water container including fish tanks. Keep marimo out of direct sun and in cool water. Change water if it becomes cloudy or green. Avoid direct sunlight and keep cool. Aquariums will ship without water (marimo are fine for up to two weeks out of water as long as they stay wet) simply fill with tap or bottled water upon arrival.
