The Exo Terra Clarity & Odor Control Moss Ball for Turtles helps keep your tank’s water crystal clear and also reduces odors. Made to resemble its natural counterpart, this moss ball helps condition the water while blending in with your tank’s décor. A special absorption resin draws in and traps phosphate, nitrite and nitrate. As a result, less organic matter is able to build up, creating ideal conditions and better water quality.

Maybe I should have been aware but these are not live moss balls. They’re plastic balls filled with carbon that are wrapped in a green colored faux fur. They look unusual in my tank next to real moss plants. I keep a filter running so I’m not sure how well this helps with odor and clarity but my tank is clear and odorless! 2 stars for possible effectiveness but completely misleading product title (you literally cannot call this product “moss”).
Seems To Be Working! *Turtle Tank*

I have seen a noticeable difference in the clearness of my tank after using this! I replace the moss ball every now and again and it seems to be working well for me.
This works great!!!

These little things work great! They help to keep the water clean so that I don't have to change it as often! Highly recommend!
Turtles like to snip at this
on May 5, 2021
This product seems to help water clarity. Perhaps remaining food particles may attach to the moss ball. If this is so, that explains why my turtles like to snip at it like a leftover snack. It’s also probably pretty stimulating as an active activity and fun for them to toss around the bottom of the tank. While it does claim to be safe for turtles, I worry about how eating at this could effect them though. I chose my rating based on lack information and uncertainty of being the cause for clarity (recently added a new filter.) The picture is after three weeks of use.
Moss balls + other supplies

I use 2 moss balls at a time to help keep 2 turtles water clean longer. Can reuse twice if washed and rinded throughly...at least for my 20 gal tank.
I also included in my automatic orders items for my dog at awesome prices.

I have been having problems in my fish tank with high nitrates.. i put in these balls 24 hours later did a water test they greatly reduced the nitrate level by alot! I see reviews on here saying it dossnt work but it seems to be user error. Works great for absorbing organic matter you cannot see. Sorry folks but if u put it in a green tank and d expect it to clean it for you thats on you. But it does its job its made for.
Doesn't seem to help.........

I don't see how it's made any difference in the water or smell.
