Fish Tycoon - for kids and kids at heart

Fish Tycoon is a virtual fish breeding game, which you download onto your computer. The object is to breed and cross breed fish until you find the 7 Magic Fish and solve the genetic puzzle.

You buy supplies like meds, eggs and special plants and then sell some of your fish in your virtual pet store.

These are your fish, and like real fish, you need to take care of them. Feed them, cure them if they get sick, breed them and make lots of babies!

Some general tips:

  • Use the species button frequently. Once you put a fish in the small isolation tank you can click this button to get family tree information as well as a suggested price.

  • To get money quickly, figure out which fish command the highest prices and breed them exclusively. Try to get the second tank as soon as possible so you can get two breeding batches going.

  • Do not overfeed your fish!

  • Don't get the unusual or rare fish eggs until you have finished researching food and environment. You will also need to have the heater and aeration system in your tanks.
NOTE TO PARENTS: If a fish develops a disease, the player must decide whether to attempt to cure it or euthanize it. Obviously, this is not a game for very young kids, but it is a great way to introduce a child to the realities of what's entailed in keeping fish.
