I honestly don't know. I don't typically pay attention to it

If you're asking why the tank looks slightly yellowish, it's just the WB settings on my camera. The reflection of all the colors on the white background confuse it a bit.

Unless you are selling them, which you don't seem to be, why are they a trade secret? So much information gets passed around here helping everyone and you are keeping the secret of some dirt balls with plants on them.

Shame as it looks beautiful so I'm sure many others would like to take a crack at making some.

Looks like there's a lot of good info on google related to DIY'ing the balls and lots of threads on various forums come up with step by step info. I'm sure there are better and worse methods but it seems pretty straightforward.

It has more to do with what they're made of than how you make them

I absolutely love this. I've got a little 6" cube I would like to try this out in, or perhaps my spare 2.5 gallon, that way I could add a couple nano fish. Or maybe both. And the fact that you have all that growth without CO2 is awesome.
