Description of App

Addictive aquarium simulation that will keep you hooked for a long time! Let your fish prosper or die---it's all up to you.

Read what users say:

"I just love it, it's simple but yet fun...."

"This is such a cute app. I love that I can choose the color of my fishies."

"I really enjoy this app everyday!!!"

"Everytime I go to school my fish die!!!"

The aim of the game is to grow up cute little fish in your virtual aquarium. It takes about two weeks real time to bring a fish from a baby to an adult. Of course, the app does not need to be running all the time, you only should look after the aquarium once or several times a day.

At the start you have 200$ which you spend on buying baby fish. You can choose their names and colors. If you feed your little friends regularly and keep the aquarium clean the fish will be happy, gain weight, and grow up quickly. If not, well, your pets will starve, get sick, or even start to eat each other.

Features:
- Stunning 2D pencil graphics
- Hyper-realistic fish simulation, including occasional eye-flapping
- You can protect your fish from a bad flu with woolen caps
- Funny messages keep you informed about the weal and woe of your little friends

This program version is free for you, but it's ad-sponsored. You can remove the ads for a low price via an in-app purchase.

Thanks for all the reviews and the many creative ideas for improvement. I will continuously add more features as time permits.

I've always wanted a workable phone aquarium, having been fascinated with real ones I have been around in the past. This one is more doable than most in that it does actually let you read things rather than just giving you soothing watery sounds and nothing else, but I am, at this moment, trying to choose fish and I am facing a row of no less than thirty unlabelled buttons. There are also buttons on the main screen that are only labelled with numbers and letters. It may be that things have changed since the original post went up, but this really isn't an easy interface to get around I feel, even for a gamer who's used to turning VO off and on like me.

I've been struggling with this thing for an hour. It has now been deleted. I don't think it's even working properly anymore. Please, anyone looking for a stress-free, fun game, save your money, don't get jipped into removing the adverts as I did and ending up with a headache.

Hello Lulu,
I also was unable to choose fish and colors. However, as of 3/29/15, colors were labeled. However, after you choose a color for your fish, it is not described to you any longer. It then becomes your responsibility to remember what you made your fish look like. But it has come along way from what it was.

It has been updated. Now, you can pick your fishies' colors for body, fins and one more thing you can pick, stripes, dots or belly. Then, you have to feed and clean the tank. It is really accessible with voice over and I love playing it. The only bad part is the ads.

The user who posted/ submitted this to the app directory seems a bit unclear on weather the game is accessible or not,because his/ her comments say one thing,and the rating another
The game has been updated and accessibility has been improved either way, so a update of the entry would be great. :)
I have always been interested in aquariums myself, I even had a few but I couldn't really continue keeping one due to space constraints,so I suppose I could try doing it virtually unless IOS also decides to come up with space issues... :p

Do you get more sounds per fish you buy? Also, do they change as the fish grow? The ads are no longer a problem, and the game is fully accessible. I wish you could play with the fish like you do with the coy pond, but whatever. I mainly decided to try this because I miss Mobbles!

As your fish grow, it's cash value goes up. You can sel them in the my fish menu. You can also buy flue protection caps for each fish.

So I just barely got this game, and I like the sounds of the water, does anyone know if it actually shows Little fish swimming or anything like that? Also, what is the highest anyone has let their algae grow? Thank you.

What you could do to test this:
Keep your fish fed and don’t clean the tank and then you will see if it will die. Don’t bother with medicine.

It does, though I had to change the tank to a dark background so I could see them better. I've always enjoyed watching fish swimming around since I was a little kid because they were brightly colored and I could see them moving. Now I can watch them whenever I want! I've caught myself just staring and staring at them multiple times now, the longest I did was about half an hour and I don't regret a second of it!

I wonder if it works with iOS 13?
