In this game you basically have to care for fish, breed 'magic' fish and sell them if you want to upgrade your tank.
The game runs on real time meaning the fish will go about their business when you are not online, so make sure you check on them regularly or they will die.

http://www.shockwave.com/sw/content/fishtycoon

You can download the full version, or buy it.

If anyone has problems , just ask and ill help if i can! :)



To breed the fish, just drag the fish you want to be pregnant to the blue space on the bottom right hand corner(next to health and fed), then drag another fish to it, then the first fish will become pregnant.
To feed them there is food in yellow containerat top left hand corner.
To get rid of dead fish just drag the dead one to the bin on the bottom right hand corner.
To sell the fish, they have to be at least 22 (just hold a fish with the mouse and their details with come up at the black screen at bottom), the fish can then be put in the selling tank, just drag the fish to the Tank Sell button at top right. then click the green sell fish button.

The food really brings down the fish's health. My fish die very quickly. I get them pregnant, and they die before giving birth.

after you get them pregnant do you have to leave them in there?

i have a little question...how do i sell fishes?!?!?!?!?i'm tired of trying and i still can't sell anyfish....... x(

if you read my first post you will find that they have to be at least 22 years old, then you put them in the tank sell, at the top right hand corner, go to that tank and all your fish are there. when you want to sell them just click the green selll fish button, it will take a while and you wont get alot of money for, so i am trying to keep them healthy fed and getting them to grow older b4 i sell them to see how much i can get for the ages the fish are.

ok, new question. How long does it take for the fishes to give birth?
this i am not sure coz it doesn't say in the help section of the start menu but i got all my fish pregnant yesterday, come back today, and ten were dead only got three left, so i think from now on i will, play real time, when i am onlline, then when i go offline i will stop time in the game. (you can do this by going to the options button in the start menu.)

I have also found that you can mark a price on your fish, so that you are not selling them really cheap and losing money. all you have to do is drag and adult fish 22+, to the blue space at the bottom called the isolation tank, then press the species button, this will then show you the species of the fish then you have the price to sell it at the right. set the price you want and press done.

In the shop it says the yellow container is ick ointment or something...
if you look they are the food and the ointment are the same colour but look different containers
yes that is available to buy, but the food is already provided for you at the top left of the tank, in the shop you can research and upgrade the food, but that cost $200, and i aint got nothing lol skint

it will always be white when you are not holding a fish!
you have to click the fish and hold with your mouse, then their details will be shown in the bottom right hand corner. from what i can gather
- green means they are ok- red means you need to feed them or give them ointment, for green growth, or white spots, both ointments are available in the shop. try to keep both bars full of green!

All my youngsters are in poor health...

I gave them vitamins, but that didn't work.

some of them are 20 now, but if they keep detariorating in health, they won't make 22 and I'll never sell anything.

I have no money to buy something else for them. They didn't look specked or anything, but who can tell, they were still very small then.

i just had the same problem esther, sadly i had no money , so i just chucked them in the bin! lol, mine didnt have green or white specks so i dont know wot was wrong with them.

Soemtimes the game soesn't work properly.

I have a dead fish I can't throw in the bin. I can throw it in actually, but I keep seeing it on screen...

rosiemay05
03-23-2006, 20:27:00
i think the game is a bit buggy, coz the same has happened to me, also when the new fish were born, there seemed to be a problem when i tried to drag the adult fish, there seemed to be los of them as i was dragging them, so i then need to close the window and go back to the site again.

Ok I have no idea what's wrong with the fishes, But I suppose they seemed kinda green*as if they had a green spray on part of them* (SO I bought that anti fungal or w/e stuff...) It didn't work. Death was my poor fishes only option so they died an i was like dammit..... :/

I started another game, and some babies had white spots when they were a little older so i bought the other stuff. They all died as well.

It seems the first batch of fish, the originals that come in the first eggs you get for free-when I used that growth stuff- Live the longest! They are the only ones that survive! But then when they breed.... Not all survive.

I have had TWO fish that were born by way of breeding survive. The rest just died.

03-24-2006, 10:40:01
Some fishes cannot survive in a certein kind of tank condition. you nid to do reserch enviroment which cost some $$.
you can change the time mode by going to th options.
to check if da fish is pregnent, juz drag it to a small little tank located at the bottom of the screen
Sometimes customer don't want to buy the fishes as the selling price is too high. to change the price, drag the fish to the samll tank at the bottom and click on options.
Fishes do get sick, but sometimes you need more then one drop of each kind of medicine to cure the fish,

But when you just start, you don't have the money to pay for the environment research...

balcony
03-24-2006, 14:35:45
so try to breed fishes that can adpt to the 'now' tank condition. When you do..sell that particular type of fish. eventually you will earn enough money...

Okay, thanks, I'll try that.
It's going to take an awful lot of time though I'm afraid...

Thanks for that info I guess.... I understand fully how to play the game, I read the instructions and know how to do everything... how to use the meds and such... So I don't need any explanations on that.. it's just they tend not to work. Oh well, it's all good anyways because today i got to my comp and the fish from yesterday were ALL dead anyways (Adults too) So i'll just try again :p

Unregistereds
03-25-2006, 00:10:54
the fish gets sick if you give them food when their not hungry !
also you can give the fish vitamins (the purple bottle), it usually helps a bit.
Anyway, I sell all my fishes for 20 $ or more...the costumers will buy them anyway, you just have to wait for a long time. If you have any bugs in the game it sometimes helps to go to the sell tank and then back to your tank!

balcony
03-25-2006, 03:04:22
the fishes get sick at a random time. Sometimes is because the food did not give enough vitamins to fish...so once again you got to do reserch oh fish food.......there's a lot of stuff you nid to do.

this is stupid. the people take SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO long to buy fishies. so i watch like 20 min of tv before a fish is actually bought. like what the h3ll?

bone2stone
03-25-2006, 04:53:20
AND YOU KNOW WHAT???????????????? I'M SO SICK OF THIS GAME. BUT I SOOOOOOOOOOO WANT TO WIN.......THIS IS SAD. ANYWAY, CAN YOU CHANGE THE PRICE OF THE FISH? THEY ARE A BIT low...................

balcony
03-25-2006, 06:55:57
of course you can change....juz drag that partucular fsh to the small tank at the bottom and click on species. To be frank...there is no win or lose in this game.....

note: if the price of the fish is to high. most of your customers won't buy.it will a freakin long time. if the price is low, the fishes will be sold veri quickly but you will earn little money. i suggest you should just stick to the price given by the game itself...

*or maybe you can a doller more or two....*

bone2stone
03-25-2006, 07:06:17
YEA. sorry about all that stuff i just said. i kinda figured out the rest on my own. i now got 2 new breeds. help on how to get the health!

balcony
03-25-2006, 07:52:59
The health thing is kind of complicated. different kind of fishes has different chances of surviving in your tank condition. Sime will remained pink in health while others will start to decrease in their health. If you notice your poor little fisshies health decreasing, you go to do reserch enviroment.

You have to isolate them in the little tank at the bottom. then click species and you can set a price.

sum fishes u get will die unless u have researched the fish environment thing. Thats why breeding 2 different fishes at start diesnt really help. Heres what i have done i have just kept breeding my spined beta i have like 6 of them. Im gnna keep breeding and selling etc. Till i get the fish environment thing then ill get eggs and breed different ones. As i had these kool ones and they eventually died wen they were 20 =( Good luck and do wat i do lol =) :nzd:

To get an infinite amount of money, when you are pricing your fish hold down '9' till the price say infinity. Then wait long enough till someone buys one.

I found if you give a pregnant fish vitamins it would give birth quicker.

If you can't afford a second tank just use the selling tank as a second one. Just remember to NOT press the sell fish button.

To speed up time just set your computer clock a few hours forward. Then change it back. Your fish will grow and putting the clock right doesn't do anything.

Hope these help.

Additional game-play tips:

(1) There is nothing to do but wait for fish that you can only get by purchasing eggs. This is, by far, the hardest (and sometimes most frustrating) part of the game… the waiting. Frankly, the having to wait for certain fish via eggs is true no matter which route you follow to get the magical fish. So, you’ll just have to be patient. If you can’t be patient (sometimes waiting over a period of several days), this is not the game for you. You may have to purchase eggs dozens of times, in fact, before you get a single fish that you need. In order to keep purchasing eggs, you’ll need to breed and sell other fish. Get rid of any fish that you don’t need, since they’ll just be wasting space, otherwise. Keep experimenting with breeding until you get a fish that sells for around $20-$30. For instance, you can breed a ton of Golden Goldbulbs (Greenfin Fatfish + Pink Beta), which sell for about $33 each. Even better, a Speckled Leaffish (Twin-Fin Fruitfish + Orange Spotanus) sells for about $51. Doing this will allow you to keep buying the eggs that you will require. Again, there isn’t any way around this.... uhhhh... unless you go to changing hex values, of course, but I'm not getting into that here.

(2) Don’t spend every last dime on eggs; reserve about $100 for medicines. Breed more and build up your cash. If you spend all of your cash, you won’t be able to purchase medicine to cure sick fish. If certain fish die, you may have a devil of a time figuring out how to breed them again, since the game does not keep track of what you’ve bred once that species has sold and/or died.

(3) Once you begin breeding magic fish, don’t waste too much time on raising and selling other fish. Raise a ton of the magic fish, instead. The magic fish sell for big bucks and attract tons of customers. Also, when you’re only keeping magic fish as breeders, you won’t take up so much room in your tanks with less-profitable fish. You’ll want to re-set the default prices of your magic fish before you sell them. Here are low-end prices (if you keep them low-end, you’ll sell more and you’ll sell quickly):

a. Greenfin Spotanus: $48 - $51
b. Speckled Leaffish: $100 - $125
c. Crimson Comet: $100 - $125
d. Oriental Goldbulb: $100 - $125
e. Orange Snooper: $85 - $95
f. Wasp Grouper: $120 - $130
g. Canary Fire-Arrow: $250 - $275

(4) You’ll probably want to keep two of every magical fish once you’ve got them, so that you can continue to breed them. If you sell all (or all but one), you’ll have to follow the whole breeding process again in order to breed magical fish for big bucks.

(5) The aerator, the heater, the snail, the seahorse, and the magical plants can make a significant difference in the health of your fish. They’re worth purchasing.

(6) Once you’ve got the sixth magic fish (Wasp Grouper), make certain that you don’t leave it in a tank where you are attempting to breed specific fish. The Wasp Grouper is the Magic Fish of Mutation, remember, so if he’s in the tank with your pregnant fish, you will not get the babies that you’re expecting from your pregnant fish.

(7) The most difficult aspect of this game, other than figuring out the breeding combinations and the waiting factor, is obtaining your research. I suggest stacking up your money and purchasing all of your research (food, environment, and advertising) before attempting magical fish (past the second one, anyway). Otherwise, the fish that you need to breed to make the magical fish will not survive in your tanks. I really believe that getting your research out the way before attempting a bunch of fancy breeding is key in this game.

(8) Purchasing a second tank allows for mass-breeding, which leads to more money. Each tank holds only 21 fish.

(9) Isola fish never die of old age (supposedly, anyway). The age of a fish isn’t years; it’s more like the age in hours.

(10) The music that seems so random apparently corresponds to an event occurring with your fish. It could be a pregnant fish giving birth, eggs hatching, a disease striking, starvation occurring, or a death occurring. In some cases, it seems that none of these factors applies and that the music is indicating age progression. If none of these explanations applies, then the music must be just random.

(11) The weird “squeaky-swishing” sound that occurs sporadically seems to just be the fish swimming around and does not seem to indicate an event of any kind.

(12) If you absolutely, positively cannot wait around for fish to hatch/grow, etc., then go to “Control Panel” (on a PC), then “Date and Time” and set your computer’s time ahead. With the game on 2x speed, setting the clock ahead 2 hours works great. A game set at normal speed would probably require a clock setting of 3-4 hours ahead. Setting the computer clock back seems to have no affect on the fish whatsoever. WARNING: Be certain that you don’t have any sick/unhealthy/unfed fish before you set your computer’s clock ahead. If you do have sick/unhealthy/unfed fish, they’ll probably be dead once you set the clock ahead. You will NOT be able to recover those fish by setting the clock back again.

Seriously easy. REALLY EASY. all you do is, put the fish in the box at the bottom, then go to species, then delete the money that is there already and continuously press nine until it says something like this 1+e11 or something. then you will have continuous money forever and if not? just do it again it dosnt matter if you even do it to only one fish.:D eternal money forever.
