Japan In-Depth

Want a super low-maintenance pet? Try marimo!

If you're tired of fish but can't find another pet (besides plants...which aren't pets) to take care of, why don't you try marimo? Marimo are a special type of algae which grow into round balls. They're super cute and very popular in Japan, which is one of the few places where they are able to grow.
