Adopt a Holoholo
No time to dedicate to a pet? But dying to get a no-fuss companion? Get yourself a friendly Holoholo then.
Marketed in Japan as a "maintenance-free" pet, Holoholo is a water tank, decorated with a stick of vegetation and coloured sand at the bottom, starring tiny shrimp swimming around inside it. Holoholo are red and the larger ones can grow to over a centimeter in length. Over a centimeter! How exciting!
Holoholo (I love that name) survive by feeding off microscopic bacteria that are also living in the water and every now and again you have to squirt some special bacteria-water into their plastic tank for them to feed on.
