Storing fresh Mozzerela cheese?

Hi! I bought the gargantuon size fresh moz cheese in Costco (balls of cheese in water). Needless to say, I cannot use it all at once, and I was wondering, once opened, how to I keep the unused cheese? Keep it in the water?
p.s. it really is much better than the store-bought crumbly stuff!
how big IS it?
I have never had this problem as I have never been able not to eat the entire thing, but most of the fresh mozz I have seen is no bigger than fist size.
Light brine, or half milk/half water, lightly salted if you like. Most importantly, change it every day or two - fresh mozz really just doesn't keep very well and not changing the water quickens the deterioration process.
