Great game! But please give us a larger variety of fish.


I love this game, it's addicting!. It requires some practice and strategy but after you get the hang of it and start breeding all kinds of crazy fish it's a blast and always surprising. To be successful in this game you need to go into SUPPLIES at the bottom of the screen & learn how to make your fish thrive. If you're having the problem of losing fish when you stop playing the game for a while it's because your forgetting to go into MENU, OPTIONS and STOP TIME. That'll leave the game - and your fish - exactly as you left them. Have fun!! One more thing... when you go into your store to sell your fish it seems to me that if you keep tapping on the little people they seem to buy more fish.

Great game!

This is another great game by last day of work. I think that it is fully worth the money spent, and is much better with more interaction than rivals, especially since there are no additional purchases they want you to make.

The only aspect of the game I don't quite like is the limited number of fish. It would be nice to be able to buy a third or fourth tank in the supplies shop.

A few helpful tips to get you progress

After you do the tutorial buy common yellow eggs and put them in the tank. Aftr they hatch find the same fish that look exactly alike. Dont worry about the fins. Then after that keep breeding the same spcies again and agan. DONT CROSSBREED FISH YET. Then after you get enough money get tank2 for more money and breeding then buy research envirement so u can farm more rarer fish.
