The hint to this game is breeding the magic fish of fertility over and over and over. Make sure that is the only fish you have in either tank. After selling this fish over and over for 70$ a Piece, you have enough money to research the environment and food all the way, that way the fish do not die. Then after that keep doing this until you have enough money to buy the purple eggs for the supply store. Which is how I have managed to already find 3 of the magic fish!!! But make sure you keep two of the fertility fish at all times, in case you run out of money, you can keep this process going while finding the other fish!! Hope this helps!!!!


I've been playing this game on my computer for like 3 years and found it on the IPad, so I got it and have had it for 3 days on the IPad so far. It's amazing! The only glitch is that the current version doesn't allow you to buy a second tank, but the computer version does. I do not have the full version on the computer and can buy the research food, research environment, and that stuff. I would really like that fixed. But, it still gets the five stars it deserves because I really love the game so much! Thanks so much for bringing the game to the iPhone and iPad!


The game is fun to a certain point. It needs good quality, if u compare it with all the other games out there, it is not so good :/
Make it a little bit easier, fishes die quickly. And as u advance in the game you will need a second tank. The game has potential, it needs a lot of tweaking, try and add new things or new fishes just to keep the user entertained and not get bored after some time. KEEP UPDATING, IT HAS BEEN A LONG TIME!
