Light | Bright, indirect sunlight. Every other week we recommend placing the entire vessel in the refrigerator overnight so it can mimic the cold temperatures of Japan's waters.
Water | Use filtered cold water - recommend filtering thru the water every 3-4 weeks. If needed, remove your moss ball with tweezers or chopsticks, then rinse under cold water, turn, and squeeze out excess water, then place back in the vessel.
Food | Although not necessary, you can use an aquatic feeder every 2-3 rinses: https://amzn.to/2F3cxNQ
Other | Make sure to turn your moss ball every 3-4 weeks so that all sides receive equal amount of light!
