Their home is in the Ocean. Most mermaids live in Atlantis, but, the other mermaids travel from sea to sea. They also have their own homes in the other oceans, so they don't have to stay in one place. They hate to stay in one place for long. Some mermaids live in beutiful houses, others live in under water caves stuffed with sunken treasure.
