Are you thinking of getting it off ebay?

They were left alone for a very long time, but eventually they all got destroyed. I thought they were just balls of moss. They contained Styrofoam. Little rocks small enough to choke on, and a bunch of fishing line. They clogged a filter to the point it almost completely stopped and made me clean an entire tank and filter early and could have burned up a very expensive filter. I thought they were okay. They were not. I’ve heard people say that there is some kind of ‘moss ball’ that is really just moss. I would suggest that they shred one apart themselves to make sure that is the case, because ours (bought at Petco) were not – they were as described above. I would classify them as highly dangerous and I now do not use any type of live plants in my turtle enclosures. The clean up and risk is not worth it. I feed a variety of vegetables and use a lot of very natural looking fake plastic plants.
