Levels & XP

Effective, May 27, 2013, the level cap in Fish World was changed from 99 to 250.  Enough levels to keep you busy for hours upon hours of game play.  Along with the increase in levels, other features were added that affect XP. Effective October, 06, 2015, the level cap was once again increased from level 250 to 300.

Leveling up is important as you have to be a certain level to send certain Free Gifts to your friends, certain items in the store and play certain features of the game.

Currently, all Free Gifts unlock at level 120, all store items become available for purchase at level 65, the Auction House unlocks at level 20 and you start earning slots credits at level 100.

You level up fairly quickly at lower levels.  The higher you go, however, the longer it takes to reach the next level.  You do, though earn greater rewards as you level up.

Leveling Up Tip: The fastest way to move up is to fill your tanks with 100 green snappers and bulk sell them every 4 hours. As soon as you can buy another tank, do so, and continue the process until you reach the desired level. It is very important not to overfill the tank if you bulk sell (use Sell All Fish button). Keep to 100 total fish in a tank and you’ll earn the max XP for your level.  See this brief tutorial.

Experience Points (XP) Explained

You earn XP in a variety of ways.  The most basic way, however, is by buying and selling fish.  Everyone has their own favorite fish to use, but if your goal is to level up, then the Snapper is most likely the best fish to use.  It matures in 4 hours allowing you to buy and sell several times a day.  While the Flame Angel matures in 5 minutes, you get limited XP for this fish.

Buying Fish:
The 5-minute fish (Flame Angel) provides 0 experience points per fish bought.  For every other fish:

+1 XP for every fish egg bought and hatched in a coin tank

+2 XP for every fish egg bought and hatched in a deluxe tank

Selling Fish:
The 5-minute fish (Flame Angel) provides +1 XP per fish sold.  For every other fish:

-Bulk selling (clicking “Sell All Fish” button)

-more than +100 fish  in a tank provides +2 XP perfish sold

-100 fish or less in the tank provides the maximum XP based on your current level.*

-Selling fish one by one or having a predator eat them

-No matter the amount of fish in the tank provides the maximum XP based on your level.*

*If the tank is a deluxe tank you get a slight XP boost netting you slightly more than the max for your level.

Other Ways To Earn XP

Rescue Crate Spins:
Every time the wheel lands on a color for which all keys have been unlocked, you will earn  XP. The amount of XP starts at whatever the max is for your level, down to a base amount. Similar to the how the Daily Spin works.

Using Super-gro:
+5 XP for each fish grown.

Clicking A Loot Bag:
+1 XP for clicking a loot bag.

Cleaning Algae:
+3 XP for every algae spot cleaned in your own tank. You will also occasionally get special gems / stones with different coin/xp values when Cleaning Tanks.

Feeding Treats:
+1 XP for feeding your neighbors’ fish a treat.

Cleaning Garbage:
You also gain a lot of experience when you clean garbage from your neighbors tanks. The amount you gain is based on your level. See this post on Cleaning Garbage, Oil Spills and Fish Hooks for more information.

Charging Robot Fish:
You receive as many XP as your current level for every robot fish charged in your own tank and your neighbors tanks. For example, if you are level 99, you will get 99 XP for each robot fish charged.  You can charge your own robot fish every 6 hours.  Others can charge your robot fish once every 24 hours. Fish World’s Community Group (FWC) has a document with links to tanks containing robot fish.  You can find it here.

Buying Decorations:
You gain XP when purchasing Fish Buck decorations. The amount varies and is usually shown in the store.

The Daily Spin:
You will receive varied amounts of XP from the Daily Spinner. The higher your level, the more XP you win.  Your first spin will provide the highest XP.  With each successive spin the amount decreases until you plateau at a set amount for the rest of the day.

Daily Goals:
You will receive varied amounts of XP by completing a set of goals posted daily in your tank.  The amount earned is level dependent.

The Fishing Spot:
You will receive varied amounts of XP for every fish caught.  The amount earned is level dependent.

The Auction House:
You will receive varied amounts of XP for every fishbuck item purchased.  The amount earned is level dependent.

The VIP Wishing Well:
VIP members receive daily XP for clicking their wishing well.

What is the criteria for moving up to a higher level?
You get to higher levels by gaining experience points (XP).

How do I know what level I am on?
The star in the upper right hand corner will have your level number in it. If you hover over the star with your level number in it, it will tell you how much experience you need to get to the next level.

Leveling Up Tip: The fastest way to move up is to fill your tanks with green snappers sell every 4 hours. As soon as you can buy another tank, do so, and continue the process until you reach the desired level.
