New fad in Singapore: exotic marine aquarium pets

Today, there is an article highlighting the fad for exotic marine creatures in home aquariums.

Hermit crabs, seahorses and shrimps are some of the novelty creatures now making a splash as pets.

A few fish fanatics have even taken the plunge and are pampering stingrays.
