Filling your tanks with fish is one of the most important parts of the game.
Be careful of what you click on in the store. Developers are always adding new things and changing things around. Make sure you are buying the type of fish you really want to buy.
Effective, February, 2014, Fish World redesigned the Fish World Shop. The old shop was less able to handle the volume of items we now have available to us in the game making it difficult to navigate.
The new store includes some very highly requested items: a store search and the ability to multi-purchase fish. In addition, a whole new “Featured” category was added to better help you find things like sales and items leaving.
In addition to searching on name or partial name, you can search on function and certain tags. The following are the most common function names and tags:
Click the Open Shop Icon located on the tool bar below your tanks to open the store.
You can then either click the Fish & Wildlife category to display all current fish sections available or use the search box to try something more specific.
Remember you can search on name, partial name, function (premium, feeder, etc.) and tags (predator, prey), but not things like color or type of fish (snapper, pixie, etc.) unless it is part of the name.
If you clicked the Fish & Wildlife category, the store displays all fish sections currently available in the store. Simply use the scroll bar to the right of the store to navigate to the section you are interested in. For example, Starter Fish.
Click the fish section picture to load all the fish available in the section. To buy a fish, click its picture to load the purchase panel details.
If you want to buy more than one, type the number you want (up to 50), use the – /+ arrows to adjust the number displayed or click MAX to buy 50. Click BUY NOW to buy the fish.
If your tank is a coin tank you gain +1 experience point (XP) for every fish egg hatched. If it is a deluxe tank (you paid Fishbucks for it), you gain +2 XP for every fish egg hatched. The exception to this is the 5 minute fish, the Flame Angelfish, which will not give you any XP for hatching.
Is there a limit to how many fish can be in a tank?
Yes, any player who started after March 2011 is limited to 250 fish per tank. Anyone who started before then may have 500 fish per tank.
Can I breed my fish?
Yes, you can now breed your fish using the Research Lab.
There is also a Betta Breeder.
