Ratings and Reviews
Wasn’t quite what I was expecting hence the 4 star not the 5 star, but don’t let that one star less or a price tag push you away. Features are a bit lacking in some ways (frankly not sure what I would add), but in other ways the devs went above and beyond. They didn’t need to add the “sound only” mode (sorry forgot it’s actual name), and the detail they put into the graphics, wow stunning. The fish are beautiful, the little customizations you can do to your pond really make it feel like your own, the way the water looks in unreal, especially for a phone. However if you are looking for a more traditional game this is not that, it is much more of a zen garden type thing. A few minutes of playing, with a couple of hours of listening.
Also in a game like this, having a paywall was very smart. No one wants to be interrupted by an ad when they are taking care of their Koi. And as far as Freemium goes, this game would be awful if you had to pay for more Koi slots.
Any way good game if you are looking for a relaxation type deal not worth it if you want a busywork gameplay type deal.

Thank you very much Ashlan71 for your thoughtful review. I think you nailed the description very well :).

My favorite app!
This app has quickly become one of my all-time favorites! The fish are beautiful and mesmerizing to watch, and I love the ambient sounds of the rainfall, frogs, insects, and birds.
The ripples of the water, the shadows of the fish and plants, the occasional passing butterfly, and the distant thunder and lightning are perfect. It’s obvious to me that the developer is an avid observer of nature and aquatic life. I love the options for controlling the time of day, which directly correspond to the ambient background sounds. The underwater viewing feature is nice for when you prefer a more constant sound, rather than the changing noises of the birds and such.
This such a remarkably well-designed app, not only in the graceful and realistic movements of the fish, but also the soothing aspects. It is so thoughtful of the developer to include an ambient background function, because the app is very pleasant to use during naps or when I’m going to bed. In this way, the lights are dimmed and the power usage is decreased to enable less battery utilization.
I mostly use the app on my iPad rather than my iPhone, because I enjoy the larger viewing screen. I actually bought a better easel stand for my iPad than what I already had, just so I could better enjoy this app.
If you’re going to buy only one app for relaxation and/or meditation purposes, I highly recommend this one ❤️

Wow, thank you so much for your wonderfully detailed and positive review, it's really made my day :). I work on the app in my spare time and sometimes it's a great struggle, but to hear feedback like this gives me a great boost in energy to keep making it better. As always if you have any more suggestions or feedback please get in touch either via firstname.lastname@example.org or via https://www.facebook.com/mykoiapp, thank you again, Andy
As a goldfish/koi enthusiast, this is now my favorite app. I’ve played around with aquarium/fish apps, but this one gives me the experience of something I’ll probably never be able to afford. Enjoying a koi pond! Beautiful and relaxing, but really it’s in the koi settings where you adjust the characteristics of the koi, where I see the attention to detail. I have plenty of goldies! From lionchu, orandas, pearlscales, telescopes, and ranchu. I’m in love with kanoko patterns, and how each fish is so unique, watching how their coloring changes, black revealing orange over time. It’s interesting to see how accurate they got the color fade setting so that you can pull/fade pigments adjust color but still keep it realistic, right down to scale type! I have to drag myself away from baby koi begging for food at LFS, knowing I can’t afford a set up for them. But the app is giving me the same giddiness I get around real waterbabies.
