We're introducing this unique Marimo test tube aquarium, which is a combination of chemistry, science, geek and nature! It's a very interesting and eye-catching display, with a cool industrial look!

So what is a Marimo moss ball? It's a cute living green algae under water, which forms a round shape naturally. With its interaction with water, it sometimes floats or sinks freely like an unpoppable balloon (although more often it likes to sink), and it will grow bigger very very 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 and it means true love, 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”.

There's almost no maintenance for this Marimo creature. All it needs is to be completely under water and artificial light (or indirect light)! No special requirement for the water and no fertilizer is needed. You only need to change water once every 1-2 weeks. And it will grow slowly and happily:) No green thumb is needed! Just make sure not to drop your Marimo ball down to the sink when you change water...!

This listing includes:
(1) One metal stand with a square concrete base. The height of the whole stand is about 8'', and the width of the base is 3''.
(2) One glass test tube with a height of 6'', and an opening of 1''.
(3) A fresh green Marimo moss ball (the size varies from the one in the pictures but similar);
(4) Some clear acrylic crystal to put at the bottom of the tube;
(5) An assembly and Marimo care instruction sheet.

In order to protect the glass and the Marimo ball, it comes as a kit, but all you need to do is put water in the tube, and the acrylic crystal and Marimo! Then you can put the test tube on the stand! It's that easy! Please handle it carefully since the glass is fragile.

If you have custom requests, please send us a message! Thank you:)
