Fish tycoon...

Alright so I decide to purchase this game called Fish Tycoon for my new PDA in order to help pass my time while sitting in the train.

The only problem is that I cannot figure it out. But I am not that dumb I thought.

Why are my fish dying? How come the pregnant fish never give birth? Why isn't anyone buying my fish?

Just a few questions I will have to figure out in the coming days.

So far there are 21 comments.

If you send me the registration code I will explain how to keep them alive and how to sell. I have the trial version and need the reg code. One hint move preferences too fast and you have to notice which breeds are healthy at birth. I have sold 120 fish on the trial version and it is hard as hell to keep them alive

You must be kidding. Buy the game first.

Fish die easily without environmental upgrades. once you upgrade to the full (2 levels), all 400 or more species will be available. food upgrades will keep your fish well fed also.
As for selling, try golden goldbulbs which you can sell up to 40 or 50, until you have discovered magical breeds to sell at even 400.
I think only one magical fish is available in trial version, so far only discovered 4 types on my full version.

Ok let me let you guys know something.
1.I have found two Magic types(fish of substanance and fish of fertility) in the trial version. I could tell you the combo's that create them(for the code)
2.I have upgraded to level three food
3.The goldglub is a good fish but the fish of substanance sells for 54 and you can bred 4-5 times before selling them close to death
4.You are right somewhat without envioment upgrades it is difficult to keep new fish alive BUT it is mainly Hybrid- Hybrid 2nd generation where you get the problem.
6.To make big money when you find expensive breeds, bred them only. Keep em pregnant and sell the parents after 4 breeds, sell the kids at will. You can ALWAYS start from scratch by buying eggs.
7.Here are my stats
Real Hours played 484
Units of food given 453
fish trashed 255
Fish Cured 3
Fish Sold 326
Avg Price/fish 15
Money Earned 5137
Money Spent 4340
Spcies Discovered 81 (Trial Version)
Magic Fish found 2 of 7

I will trade Fish tycoon for other pda games or applications. [email protected]

- Posted by Albert at August 4, 2004 06:08 PM

I'll give you the 5 magic fish types for nothing. Put a email address here and I'll send them. The reason for that- wouldn't want to wreck the game for anyone wanting to work it out themselves.

So far- played 120 hours, Units food 83, fish trashed 85, fish cured 13, fish sold 618, av price 36, money earned 22494 money spent 21870 species discovered 132 magic fish found 5

Don't panic. I play the demo too and I don't have problems giving birth to my pregant fishes, breed them or sell them. Sure it's more difficult baut not impossible.
If you want to keep your young fishes alive there are few solutions. The only rule is to be patient.
First Buy an aeration system by selling your first babies. That increase oxygen in your tank. Otherwise, try to sell a lot of cheap fishes to make money and then buy Food Research. The level 2 make your babies stronger. Warning! When you have dead fishes in your tank, delete them as soon as you see one. Leaving dead fishes in your tank will increase diseases. In order to sell them fast without loosing to much money, just increase your fish value of 1 or 2$. When you are in your store, wait 1 minute or two. If nobody buy your fishes, they cost too high. decrease 1$ step by step until the price seems enough for customers. Some fishes are very hard to sell (Twin-Fin Sharks or LeafSpin Fishes) but you can create very cool fishes breeding them and sell them near 40$!!
Try to keep your first fishes as longer as you can. They will help you to create new species.
Have a good time!

Hey, I never knew that dead fish increased disease in the tank. Nor was I aware of the fact that certain types of fish are harder to sell than others. Thanks for the tips.

I have purchased everything possible in the game. I have found 5 of 7 (Mutation, Growth, Sustenance, Health, and Curing). My stats are

Real Hours Played: 92
Units of Food Given: 466
Fish Trashed: 116
Fish Cured: 12
Fish Sold: 447
Avg Price/Fish: 44
Money Earned: 20014
Money Spent: 12430
Species Discovered: 168
Magic Fish Found: 5 of 7

My best strategy so far is to take the magic fish of growth and breed the heck out of it.. Since it makes the babies grow fast you can sell them quicker. Even with level one advertising and no ornaments in your tank you can pull in 150 easy. The trick is to put it in the sell room and just leave it alone. I sold 18 in one go. There were 8 people in my store and they bought every single fish in less than 5 minutes. (disable screen off BTW) Anyway, I cannot find the right combination to create my final two magic fish. Anyone have any ideas? I don't even know what the two I am missing are called or what their bodies resemble, that would make it easier. Thanks!

RE: Rapidly Dying Fish If you're breeding exotic fish (3rd and 4th generation mixes) and find they're dying just after adult stage... Throw them into the isolation tank, impregnate them with like the same breed, set the price to something like 300, then throw them into the selling tank, as long as you stay in the shop they will stay alive, they won't be sold because nobody will pay those prices for them, once they're pure breed, they don't tend to die as quickly https://www.chris-morley.com/fish is a small page I'm gradually building up as a reference - It's not a game spoiler since you have to get a certain way to have access to the fish in that, but it'll save a little time. I plan on giving it the ability to take submissions from users - which is why some of the bs is in there...

I have also found the Fertility and Sustenance fishes in the trial version. Anyone know if it's possible to find others before buying the game. I want to see how far I can stretch the trial before upgrading.
I have about 70 species so far.

I too have found "Sustenance" and "Fertility" (and about 80 non-magical ones). Do any of you know if it's possible to find others in the trial version? I like the game and will probably upgrade eventually but for now I'm enjoying the challenge of seeing how far I can push the trial.
