This app is REALLY cool, and was one of the first fish breeding games around. And it has SO MUCH potential!!!
Unfortunately the developers clearly gave up on it some years ago, which really bummed me out. Because of that, you can only have a max of 3 tanks (which isn't anywhere near enough room), the decoration choices are very limited, and there have been no updates & no new content (or new fish!) added since 2011...
I REALLY wish the developers would start working on this again because it's different than all the other breeding games out there!

Not impressed at all

I use to play this game on the computer and I loved it. But the app is awful and a waste of time and money which I didn't know until after I bought it 😡. The fish die way to fast it is completely not realistic and they get sick way to fast. I care for my fish all the time but it really doesn't seem to mater. And I hate the fact that you can't set your own price for the fish if it is even 10 dollars over the fair price people in the fish shop will not buy them, that's so stupid, it is my shop and I should be able to sell the fish at any price. So until you all fix this game I will not give it a better rating and I will tell everyone I know not to buy it. And trust me I know a lot of people.


I have this on the computer too but I beat that version. I would say that the wait is too long, I know the time travel glitch though so it's not a problem. This game is a great time killer. And for all of those amateurs who say their fish die too fast, you are probably breeding really unstable hybrids in low level Enviroment. As for the blurry graphics, I think this is one of those games more meant for an iPad, but I like it on my regular iPhone anyway.
