CHAPTER 1
What is insaniquarium?

'Feed fish! Fight aliens! It's the craziest aquarium you've ever seen in this spectacular action-puzzle adventure from the makers of Bejeweled, Bookworm, and Zuma. Adapted from the hit web game, Insaniquarium Deluxe features 20 all new levels in 4 unique tanks. Buy fish, upgrade your weapons, and unlock secret pets as you explore this captivating underwater world. Then stock your virtual tank with fish to create your own personal screensaver!'

Insaniquarium is actually a called `insane aquarium' You can download the trial version here for free but after an hour, it expired. To get the full version, you have to pay US$19.95. But its worth though.

Insaniquarium was created by Flying Bear Entertainment and marketed by PopCap Games. It was awarded "Innovation In Game Design" in the 2002 Independent Games Festival by the Game Developers Conference. The first version of the game was Java-based and was available as a free online game. Shortly after, a PDA version was released. The latest version is the popular Deluxe version for PC (released in September 2004).

There are 4 modes in Insaniquarium. Adventure, Time Trial, Challenge, and Virtual Tank

CHAPTER 2
Adventure

The aim in adventure is to get 3 pieces of eggs. But to get that, U have to earn money. To earn money, u have to grow your fish until med, to get silver coin. And to grow your fish, u have to click on the screen to drop food. Sometimes, hungry aliens would invade ur tank and eat ur fish. So to kill em, Click on them.

Sounds simple, But when u get to tank 4-1, do not complain
Ok, let start our quest right now!

Tank 1.1
Its actually practice for new players
There are no aliens in this tank
U could just take ur own time on this
But if u wan the fastest way to complete game
Fish ur fish until it grows to a adult fish.
Do not buy another fish!
Try not to miss a coin or waste any food…

My record = 1.21 secs (my new acct)
Pet = Stinky the snail. He moves around on the bottom of the tank helping u catch coins, shells, diamonds etc.

FYI, fish food costs $5, silver coin is worth $15, golden coin is worth $35

For experienced players
Have u heard be4 players completing tank 1.1 under 10 secs?
Yes, this has been proved. But to achieve it, This is how u do it.
Select Walter, Amp, Blip.
Try to use Walter to punch amp under 5 secs.
Click on amp after he charge, then collect the sapphires.
After the 5 secs, blip would open all the options on the purchase menu.
Click on the eggs 3 times as fast as u can!
To get it under 10 secs, u have to be fast, quick and lucky.
Lucky to get walter to punch amp under 5 secs…
Fast and Quick for those money, Amp and eggs.

FYI, Sapphires is worth $200, and $200 is ur starting cash

So if u feed 2 guppies at a time, $10 is gone, left with $190
With other $400 (from sapphires) Total with $590, more then enough for 3 $150 egg pieces.

My record = 0.09 secs.

Tank 1.2
Now ur first alien opponent is next… so be careful.
This is still easy for u guys….
Do not buy any fish, or food quantity.
But no choice u must buy quality to complete this.
Train ur guppies until they are both large.
After abt 50 secs, a alien would appear
Only In this round they would tell u there would be a alien coming with a note saying "a vicious alien has….."
Then the second time "Click on the aliens head to knock him down, and on the tail to deflect him upwards"
Each egg pieces cost $500

Well this stage is easy.

My record = 3.02 secs (new acct)
= 1.28 secs (main acct)

Pet = Niko the oyster. After a while, Niko would open his mouth with a pearl inside which worth $150

FYI, this alien is called Sylvester. You only need to click on him 10 times and he will die. All aliens drop sapphires after they die.

Tank 1.3
This is easy
Dun worry if u miss a coin or a food
Because if u follow my strategy
U can finish this easily
This strategy is called
CARNIVORE SATURATION
Play as normal until u have at least $1200
Then buy a carnivore n a guppy.
A carnivore eat a guppy and poo out a sapphire
Also do not miss niko pearls
Then until u got $1200 again buy a carnivore and guppy again
Do this again to have 3 carnivore
Now u have to juz focus on carnivore
U could still feed ur guppies for extra coin
Try not to miss the sapphires becoz is vital
Each egg pieces cost $2000
When a alien invades, do not let him eat ur carnivore!
Buy guppies and feed ur carnivore
After a while u should be able to win the game

My record = 3.33 secs (new acct)
= 2.21 secs (main acct)

Pet = Itchy the swordfish, helps u fight with aliens
FYI, carnivore is so-called carnies, sapphires is so-called diamonds and press space bar to paused the game

Tank 1.4
Fairly easy tank yet again
Do the strategy "Carnivore Saturation"
But this time, make 4 carnivores.
And in this round, a alien is born.
His name is Balrog, a lion-like alien
He is more vicious then Sylvester
So u should watch out.
Each egg pieces costs $3000

My record = 3.41 secs (new acct)
= 2.32 secs (main acct)

Pet = Prego the momma fish, give birth to guppies

FYI, u can only carry 3 pets to each round.

Tank 1.5
Well, Again a easy tank.
Choose Prego, Itchy and Niko
Do the carnivore saturation strategy again
This time is free choice, make as many carnivore as u want
I made 8! The guppy are less important, I dun even feed them
This time 2 aliens will appear even a time
Tho this happened, It is still easy

My record = 4.21 secs (new acct)
= 2.54 secs (main acct)

Pet = Zorf the seahorse, feeds ur guppies with level 2 food. Very important for screensaver mode

FYI, every tank has 5 rounds, after every 5 round, u can collects shell for ur vt in a bonus round.

Bonus rounds
Huh wat is this?
This is a round which u can collects shells for ur vt (u will learn more afterwards)

White shells = 1
Yellow shells = 2
Blue shells = 5
Spiral shells = 10
Bag o shells = 20

If u click on a shells 2 times, it will double
For example, u click a spiral shell, then u click on another (second time), u will have 20 shells

Total of 30 shells, for the third time, 30 shell, make of a total of 60 shells.

Hope u understand me (you would know if u play this round)

And also if u have clicked on the same shells for 10 times
U will got a bonus of the original shells amount multiplied by 25.

My strategy is to only click on the bag o shells becoz
If u click 10 times, u will get 1600 shells.

Anyway, back to the tank games

Tank 2.1
Fairly easy this again, coz it is just the first round
This time is a practice for u, do not buy anything at all accept the egg pieces
Let Prego produce guppies, niko for pearls and itchy for aliens.
Not gonna say much but this is it.
Each egg pieces costs $750

My record = 2.35 secs (new acct)
= 0.54 secs (main acct)

Pet = Clyde the jellyfish, important in the strategy "guppy saturation." (Learn abt this strategy afterwards) He helps you collects shells (like stinky but he moves around the tank)

FYI, star potion is for changing a large guppy into a star guppy.

Tank 2.2
Cool, now with this harder tank, it wont be easy…
Prego, Itchy and Niko again
Now play as normal until u have a option to buy starcatchers and star potion
Wait until a LARGE guppy is hungry then quickly, buy a star potion a drop above him
Then he would turn a translucent fish and drop stars.
After that, buy a starcatchers. Starcatchers eats star a throw up a sapphires
Get at least 2 star guppy and starcatchers, then u would easily go thru this round
Each egg pieces costs $3000

My record = 5.12 secs (new acct)
= 3.45 secs (main acct)

Pet = Vert the skeleton, poo out gold coin but no need to be feeded

FYI, star potion can be only eaten by large guppy and king guppy (learn more afterwards), but if a small or med guppy eat it, it would die. A star worth $40 and starcatcher need to eat stars to stay alive

Tank 2.3
Choose Prego, Itchy and Niko again.
Another tank. But with a new alien! Gus!
He can be only kill after eating fish food!
He is not really strong but if u only have only one food quantity.....
Ok right onto the solution
Actually is the same like how u finished tank 2.2
So called the starcatchers saturation
This time, 4 starcatchers and star guppies…
Each egg pieces costs $5000

My record = 6.22 secs (new acct)
= 4.51 secs (main acct)

Pet = Rufus the fiddler crab, stays at the bottom of the tank and helps to attack aliens if u lure them to the bottom of the tank.

Tank 2.4
Hahaha, another tank
But finally 2 changes, select Prego, Niko and RUFUS
And a new type of alien! Destroyer!
He stay on the bottom on the tank shooting missiles on ur fish
He don't eat ur fishes, but shoots it
For normal, do the starcatchers saturations again
5 star guppies and starcatches this time
Each egg pieces costs $7500

My record = 6.12 secs (new acct)
= 5.12 secs (main acct)

Pet = Meryl the mermaid, Sings a song to let all ur guppies drop three coins.

FYI, weapons cost $1000 to upgrade and there are 10 upgrades.

Tank 2.5
This tank is the good part do to the guppy saturation
Pets = Meryl, Clyde and Prego
Firstly, keep buying guppy and feeding until u have the option to buy the food quality and quantity
Buy both till max and continue feed those fishes
When Meryl sings, the tank should be full of coins
Make 4 star guppies and buy 3 starcatchers.
This sure should make a great amount of money in a second
You should have abt 40 guppies.
You be able to finished the tank after a while
Each egg pieces cost $10000

My record = 7.34 secs (new acct)
= 5.46 secs (main acct)

Pet = Wadsworth the whale, in alien attacks, he shelters baby and medium guppies.

Tank 3
Well, im not gonna write tank by tank again…
Coz almost every tank have the same way to complete it
So in this tank there will be 2 new aliens
PsychoSquid and Ulysses.
Psychosquid is incredibly fast and he can eat many guppies at once.
He also have a resting after a while
Ulysses is similar to destructor but instead of missiles,
He shoots energy balls at ur fishes
The energy ball wont go off after u click, it will reflects to wherever u click

One strategy
Guppy, guppy crunchers and beetle munchers
So called 'a guppy a day, keeps a beetle away'
This strategy is basically have at least 2 guppy cruncher and 2 beetle muncher
After you have 5 guppies (large) then buy a guppy and a guppy cruncher
After a while, if u r comfortable with the guppy cruncher, buy a beetle muncher
Then if u r comfortable with them, buy another pair

Pets obtained
Tank 3.1 = Seymour the turtle, His presence slows down the speed of the coins
Tank 3.2 = Shrapnel the robot fish, drops bomb the worth $150 but kills fishes if touched
Tank 3.3 = Gumbo the anglerfish, during aliens attack, gather all guppies into a corner.
Tank 3.4 = Blip the porpoise, provides info such as when fish are hungry, aliens life, where the alien be and open all the purchase option after a while.
Tank 3.5 = Rhubarb the hermit crab, hits fishes up to the tank.

Pets chosen each tank
Tank 3.1 = Wadsworth, Meryl and Prego

Tank 3.2 = 6.44 secs
Tank 3.3 = 9.56 secs
Tank 3.4 = 11.34 secs
Tank 3.5 = 12.09 secs

FYI, Beetle is worth $200, Beetle munchers worth $500

Tank 4
One new alien, Bilaterus
I call this alien the killer, especially the pointy-headed one
This alien basically has two head but u have to kill it one by one
Fish will also get kill if they get near the floating spine
2 new fish types, Breeders and Ultravores...
Breeders (like Prego) give birth to guppies and eats normal fish food
Ultravores drop treasures that worth $2000 and eats carnivores

ONE Strategy
Do the CARNIVORE SATURATION strategy until u got $12000
Its real easy if u got 10 carnies (buy 5 breeders to feed ur carnivores)
Buy guppies if ur carnies are yellow...
If u got $12000, buy an ultravore and a carnivore
Eventually buy more and more ultravores...
This is the ultimate strategy for this tank
So do this always...
But when aliens invades, I think u will be losing a great sum or fish
This strategy is ULTRAVORE SATURATION

Pets obtained
Tank 4.1 = Nimbus the Manta Ray, He bounce coins and food up to the tank again
Tank 4.2 = Amp the Electric Eel, He can kill all the guppies and turn them into sapphires
Tank 4.3 = Gash the Shark, He bite aliens and eats guppies from time to time...
Tank 4.4 = Angie the Angefish, She revive dead fishes.
Tank 4.5 = Presto the Tadpole, He can turn to any pets if u right-click on him...

Pets chosen each tank
Tank 4.1 = Blip, Gumbo/Wadsworth, Meryl
Tank 4.2 = Blip, Gumbo/Wadsworth, Meryl/Itchy/Rufus
Tank 4.3 = Blip, Gumbo/Wadsworth, Amp

Tank 3.2 = $25000
Tank 3.3 = $50000
Tank 3.4 = $75000
Tank 4.5 = $99999 (It is possible)

And the price to upgrade the weapon each is $5000 this round

My records (main acct)
Tank 4.1 = 7.44 secs
Tank 4.2 = 13.22 secs
Tank 4.3 = 13.13 secs
Tank 4.4 = 20.57 secs
Tank 4.5 = 31.45 secs

Tank 5 (Boss round)
After winning Tank 4.5, you would be getting a message from the evil mastermind, Cyrax...
Then u would be transferred in to a tank filled with ur pets and Cyrax.
Cyrax himself does not kill your pets, every 5 seconds, he creates mini-slyvester who can.
This requires you to share the focus of your laser between the mini-sylvesters and Cyrax himself.
But even worse about every 5 seconds a random alien will warp into the tank.
They will start wreaking havoc as well, thus giving you a third target to worry about.
To top it off, even though Gash and Rufus are in the tank, they won't help.
The only real positive thing is that your laser seems relatively powerful...
Balrog only needs about 5 hits to take out. Brain himself needs about 50.
You need to have at least one pet surviving when Brain finally falls....
after which the credits roll and your adventure starts over.

How do u defeat him
Actually, it is very easy... keep clicking on him and the minislyvesters...
Then when the random alien warp into the tank, Focus on that first...
When a destructor enters the tank, dont kill him, only detroys his missiles...
Now focus on Cyrax and minislyvester .... its easy, and i dun think u should lose this round..
After that... U would be transferred into the credits, and u finished the adventure mode!

Here is wat they would say in the credits after completing this round

Every credit begins with:
"Congratulations. You've successfully vanquished the alien hordes. The epic conflict between fish and evil has finally come to a close. Thanks to you, aquarium owners can sleep easy tonight! Many a pet gave their lives in the final battle, but do not grieve, little one! Angie purposefully sat out of the fight, and she's got a few tricks up her sleeves..."
(followed by the Angie save sequence and then...)

"Thanks For Playing. We'll See You again Next Game"
(if you save 1-7 Pets.)

"Also, you saved a fair number of pets yourself. Good job!"
"Thanks For Playing. We'll See You again Next Game"
(if you save 8-12 Pets.)

"Hmmm... actually it looks like not that many pets died.
Great work!! Thanks For Playing. We'll See You again Next Game"
(if you save 13-14 Pets.)

"Whoa, hold on... Only (2/3) pets died?! That's Incredible!
Good shooting, there! Thanks For Playing. We'll See You again Next Game"
(if you save 15-16 pets.)

"My Goodness! That's it? You only lost one pet?! That's unbelievable!! How the heck did that happen?! You rule this game!! Thanks For Playing. We'll See You again Next Game"
(if you save 17 pets.)

"Wait a minute! You didn't lose any pets?! How did you do that? That's really amazing! Seriously though... How did you do that?? Fine, keep it to yourself. Thanks For Playing. We'll See You again Next Game"
(if you save ALL 18 pets.)

Tank 6.1??? (Bug)

After u complete the boss round...
U can play tank 1.1 again
But after u completed tank 1.1
U will be transported into the bonus round again
Same as every tank...
Nothing new... just that u can use new pets in new tank

Chapter 3
Time Trial

Almost the same as adventure, but 2 changes.
There is a time limit for each tank.
Tank 1 for 5 mins and Tank 2, 3 and 4 for 10 mins.
And u still can buy egg pieces but purchasing an egg immediately adds a randomly selected pet into your tank. The first egg costs $100, the second $200, the third $400, and it continues to double each time thereafter.

The aim of Time Trial is to collect as many money as u can... and 5% of ur overall money will be turned into shells.

Tank 1
Yep, same strategy,
CARNIVORE SATURATION
Select, Presto, Prego and Amp (Clyde if 4)
Presto as Blip first, then Shrapnel, and Gumbo (Angie if Amp)
I bought 16 carnivores!
Record of $34000+
Very good strategy is or if u wan another one
It would be the PUNCH AND ZAP strategy
So called AMP ELECTROCUTION strategy
Select Presto, Amp and Angie (Walter if 4)
Presto as Blip, then Shrapnel, the Gumbo, and Clyde
Use Walter and punch amp when they are near,
Buy as many guppies as u can...
Switch Presto to Angie or Clyde
Then Click Amp 3 times
Sapphires are dropping!!! Click on them as fast as u can...
Repeat it again and again
Very very good strategy this is...

Tank 2
Use the AMP ELECTRODUCTION strategy
Or STARCATCHERS SATURATION
Or GUPPY SATURATION
Or MIX EM Together
Select AMP, MERYL, ANGIE, PRESTO
Turn Presto to Blip
And feed ur fish
When the purchase are opened, turned blip to Shrapnel
When Alien attack, turn shrapnel into Gumbo
After then the first alien attack, change gumbo into Clyde or Walter or Seymour
uy as many guppies as u can, and upgrade ur food quality to max and food quatity to 4
Make 5 starcatchers and star guppies each.
Angie is good for dead guppies now...
Now try to continue all the way
Record - 112000+

Tank 3
Use the strategy "A guppy and day, keep the bettle away"
OR PUNCH AND ZAP
Preferred PUNCH AND ZAP
Pets - Amp, Walter, Presto (Angie if 4)
"Quickly, locate Walter, and keep an eye on him. Change Presto into Shrapnel, or walter, he if is close to Amp. Your first order of business is to punch Amp so he can shock your guppies. You may have to wait a long time before either Walter gets close to Amp. If it gets up to like, 0:45 and they still haven't come close, you may want to start over. Feeding your fish is your next priority. Feed them until they grow to medium, and you have the option to buy Guppies. Buy as many as possible. Change Presto to Angie. Then click Amp and NUKE your guppies. Get all the Diamonds. Then have Walter punch Amp as QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE again. Buy as many guppies as you can. Make sure Presto is Angie, and NUKE them again. Keep repeating this processes (Punch Amp, Presto->Angie, Buy as many guppies as possible, D-stroy with Amp) until you have about 6,000 to 8,000 bucks. It comes quicker than you'd think. Once you have this, Turn Presto into Blip (You've heard correctly. The weakest challenge link Blip is a part of my stratagy. Blip lovers Rejoice.) Punch Amp ONE MORE TIME. However, do NOT use all of your money to buy more guppies. Keep your money at 6,000-8,000. With all the diamonds collected, you should have about 10,000-12,000 ish dollars, and a few guppies. Blip should be opening up all options soon. There should be only about 1-2 alien attacks by now. Aliens can easily be dealt with by changing Presto into Gumbo. Once all options are open we enter part two." Taken by HXC, At Davypi's FAQ Guide

Tank 4
Use Ultravore Saturation
The best strategy for this tank
Pets: Seymour, Amp, Gash and Presto.

"Turn Presto into Shrapnel and collect bombs. Buy breeder fish until you can upgrade the food. Click on Amp 4-5 times and turn all the fish into Diamonds. This should give you about 2-3K in coins. Buy both food quality upgrades, 1 food quantity upgrade and as many Carnivores as you can. Turn Presto into Angie (saves dying fish) or Nimbus - your call.

Buy only Carnivores until you have 5 carnivores. You should already have 6-8 Breeder fish to keep your Carnivores fed. Save up and buy 4 Ultravores, 1 by 1, using Amp as soon as he is ready. Buy Carnivores ONLY when you are out of Carnivores and/or the Ultravores are green - never have more than 2 or 3 in the tank at a time. After the next alien attack, buy 3 more ultravores, so that you have 7. Pick up 100,000 in coins between Alien attacks and buy the last two egg pieces. Aliens: Use Gumbo for the first couple of attacks or whenver you get a type II. After that, I just stay with Angie (saves dying fish). Use the strategy from tank 3 to drive aliens into one corner. On the last alien attack, you may have to deal with 2 aliens. Just click madly and hope Angie does her job." Taken by SuperDuperKuper At Davypi's FAQ Guide

So now you have the strategy for each tank.

Chapter 4
Challenge

Challenge mode is like adventure, u need to buy 3 egg pieces.
But two things change that to make it a challenge

First, about every 5 seconds, the cost of every item on the purchase board will by 1% of its usual cost. For example, guppies usual cost is $100, after 5 secs, it will be $101, thne $102, and so on... A food quality costs $200, increase by $2 every 5 secs. Buying a egg pieces wil reset the cost of all items to their original price, except the egg pieces. There is no way to reset the cost of a egg pieces, but it will max out at $99999

Second, the game will gradually increase the difficulty and/or number of aliens allowed into the tank during each attack. So your first attack in tank one might be Sylvester, the second Balrog, the third Sylvester and Balrog, and so on.

It is also worth pointing out that after five minutes, the game will open up all purchase options to you. As such, you dont need to buy a carnivore to finish level one. You can choose to hold on to your money and buy that last egg piece cheaper.

At the end of each challenge you are awarded with a story about the history of one of the pets or aliens in the game. Although the stories are corny, most of them actually are pretty funny. Also, each story can only be unlocked after defeating a specific tank, as follows:

Tank 1 - Stories 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 21, 25, 26
Tank 2 - Stories 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 22, 27, 28
Tank 3 - Stories 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 23, 29, 30
Tank 4 - Stories 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 24, 31, 32

After collecting all 32 stories, you can unlock story 33.
After collecting all 33 stories you are awarded with a golden cup.

Chapter 5
Virtual Tank

Virtual Tank (For short, VT) is a tank which u can control the tank all by urself... u buy fishes from the fish emporium and feed them. Eventually, it will grow... it takes about a real world 3 days to grow from small to med, and about another 3 days from med to large and about forever to grow from a large to royal... There are many types of fishes, guppies, carnivores, ultravores, starcatchers, guppycrunchers, bettlemunchers, breeders, whiffle ball, bilaterus head, sylvesters, etc.

Ok now, to learn more about virtual tank...

Virtual Tank 20-days cycle
Well in the upper right slot its a repeating 20 day cycle thru many of the different fish attributes offered. Every 10 Days it alternates between Extremely Rare Fish and Named Fish or just Extremely Rare Fish once you have all the named for a particular user.

Included is a short list for the recent past and near future dates when Named Fish and Extremely Rare Fish will be availible for purchase.

Also, below that list I have included a list for the entire 20 day cycle of special attributes offered. It should be easy enough to figure out all future dates beyond those dates I've listed with this pattern if you wish to search further ahead.

Finally, at the bottom of this guide is a link to part two by sfrose which can better help you to understand what your fish will drop, eat, etc and includes the day they can be purchased as described here.

Now for the bad news. I havent yet figured out the pattern for the following types of fish and one fish attribute, if such a pattern exists: Breeders, Whiffle Balls, Aliens, and Color Changers. However days 8,9,18, and 19 appear to be showing some greater frequency of Breeder, Alien and Color Changer availibility.

Note: Depending on your playing habbits you may need to add one day to account for when you will notice these fish appearing. Also note that in other slots these attributes may appear on days other than those listed (except named fish).

How do I earn shells
U can use shells and buy many things
Fish from the fish emporium, secret pets and pet upgrades...
5 different ways to earn shells
- Adventure's Bonus round
- Time Trial
- Challenge
- Virtual Tank's Fishes
- Screensaver Mode

Bonus round
After every bonus adventure, you could collect shells by clicking on shells at the bonus round
This is the same info i used for the bonus round...
This is a round which u can collects shells for ur vt (u will learn more afterwards)

White shells = 1
Yellow shells = 2
Blue shells = 5
Spiral shells = 10
Bag o shells = 20

If u click on a shells 2 times, it will double
For example, u click a spiral shell, then u click on another (second time), u will have 20 shells
Total of 30 shells, for the third time, 30 shell, make of a total of 60 shells.
Hope u understand me (you would know if u play this round)

And also if u have clicked on the same shells for t0 times
U will got a bonus of the original shells amount multiplied by 25.

My strategy is to only click on the bag o shells becoz
If u click 10 times, u will get 1600 shells.

Time trial
After completing time trial, 5% of ur money is converted in shells.

Playing tank 4 is a good way to get big money

Challenge
After complete tanks, u would have shells

Tank 1 - 1000 shells
Tank 2 - 2000 shells
Tank 3 - 10000 shells
Tank 4 - 20000 shells

Its a good way to play Tank 2, coz it take a little time to complete, buy it gives u 2000 shells

Virtual Tank fishes
Buy a Santa guppy (name a regular 25 shelled guppy and named it Santa)
Its a white fish with reds fish and grows rapidly
He drop bags o shells and sings

Buy a breeder, grow it till it is a large breeder, and he would give birth to a Jr
Jr drops yellow shells when he is young, blue shells when a med, spiral shells when a large
A royal Jr drops bag o shells

Mini-Sylvesters grows into a sylvester and drops bag-o-shells
Ultravores eats carnivores and drops bag-o-shells

Bettle Munchers are good too, they drops spiral shells

Screensaver Mode
So far, the grestest way to earn shells is this...
If u can only choose 3 Pets - Zorf, Clyde, Seymour (or Prego)
If u can choose 7 Pets - Zorf, Clyde, Seymour, Meryl, Brinkley, Presto as Zorf/Meryl, Nimbus/Rhubarb.

How long does my grows into a....

Breeders - About 3 days to med, 4 days to large
Whiffle Balls - About 3 days to Soccer Ball, About 4 days to Beach Ball.

Virtual Tank Cheats
There are two currently known cheats for ur VT

Time travelling
Time Travelers Guide Version 1.0

By xxSylphxx

1) What is Time Traveling?
Very simply it's moving your computers clock forward. This can be accomplished easily on most Windows formats in the "Date and Time" section of the "Control Panel" which is found in "My Computer."

2) Why Time Travel?
There are three reasons for Time Traveling: One is to reset your Virtual Tank Store, another is to restore your fishes moods and the last is to grow your Virtual Tank fish. Moving forward a day in time will give you a new selection of fish to purchase. Moving forward one day at a time and feeding each fish 3 times each of those days will grow your fish rapidly and restore their mood to the happiest state.

3) Why Not Time Travel?
The main reason not to Time Travel is that it can mess up your game, by either freezing your Virtual Store from resetting, depressing your fishes moods so they wont drop shells or locking you out of Adventure Mode. I call these negative effect "The Bends."

4) How Do I Avoid "The Bends"?
4A) The first step in avoiding the bends its not to stop traveling in time less than week forward if you are moving in that direction. If you are traveling back in time then its always best to stop moving forward no later than a week earlier than the present. Also, it is important to always disable your screen saver while Time Traveling.

4B) The second step is to reset the date to 1 week before the present date if you are concerned with your fishes moods. Usually only fish whose mood is happy or better will grow and drop shells. Also, the happier your fish is the faster it will drop shells. If you are not concerned with the draw backs of less than "happy" fish then read the underlined portion below and skip to the third step. Now that you are one week in the past, open the game and go to your virtual tank. Make sure the "Always Show When Fish Are Hungry" button is clicked off and you "Show Fish Names" is clicked on, as this will help you determine when your fish have eaten three times. Now feed your fish three times. *From Virtual Tank Mode exit by pressing the "Menu" button, then the "Main Menu" button, followed by the "Quit" button and finally the "Yes" button when the "Stop the Insanity" prompt appears. It is important to exit your Virtual Tank in this manner because of a bug which will not save progress in your Virtual Tank when using the "Back" button. I suggest always using this method for exiting your Virtual Tank no matter what you are doing in it, to avoid this bug. Now move the date forward one day and repeat this process for five days worth of feeding. This will return them to their highest level of happiness.

If you have musical fish or any fish that eat something other than the normal fish food (Carnivores, Ultravores, Exotic Eaters, Etc.) then you will need to watch them carefully to make sure they have eaten 3 times. If one of your Musical fish begins to sing, a good way to save time is to "tap the glass" (right click) over the singing fish to make it stop singing. The reason this helps is because fish will not eat while singing.

4C) The third step in avoiding the bends is to make sure you are one day before the present day. Check your Virtual Tank Store and see what is for sale. Next, allow your game to run in Virtual Tank Mode constantly between the hours of 10pm and 2am. Being in the Screen Saver will not work, you must be in the game and in Virtual Tank Mode for this to work. One good way to make use of these four hours and ensure the game stays active and screen saver mode does not become active is to use one of the "auto feeder" programs available for feeding Virtual tank fish. I suppose you could also disable your screen savers, but I have never tried it this way.

4D) The final step is to exit the game after you have followed the above directions. Now change your date a final time to the present date, restart the game and check that your store has been reset. If you have already purchased fish on the present date, you may see the same fish for sale that you saw on this date before. What you don't want to see is the same fish you saw when you checked in the third step. As long as you don't see that, then your store is reset and will change each day.

5) Already have "The Bends"?
They say an ounce (gram) of prevention is worth a pound(kilogram) of cure but, in this case they are the same thing. To cure "The Bends" simply follow the dirrections above from 4b to 4D.

6) Expert Level Time Travel
If you have mastered the above method for Time Travel without ever experiencing "the bends" than perhaps you are ready for the expert level st

6A) Avoiding "The Bends"
Before you try to return back in time to the present, make sure your fish are in the mood you wish them to be (see the second step, however move ahead from the date you currently have set until the fishes moods are what you wish them to be). Now, instead of returning a week before present, return one day before and change your clock to 10pm. Again allow the game to run until 2am (according to your reset clock), then exit the game as described in the underlined portion of the second step. Change the date and time to the correct day and time for the present and restart the game.

6B) Growing Fish Through "Regression"
Another way to grow your fish Rapidly is through the regression strategy. To do this you leave your Virtual Tank up and running. Then press Alt Tab to minimize the game without closing it. Now change the date back the number of days required to grow the fish, then feed until the fish grows and repeat as many times as is necessary. After this follow the above step to reset your VT Store.

Example: Today I purchase a Normal Breeder and minimize the game with Virtual Tank running. I change the date back three days and feed this fish three times or until it grows to medium size. Next, I minimize the game again and change the date back 6 more days. Now I feed three more times or until the fish grows to Large size when it can produce guppies. Remember, each fish has its own growth rate.

6C) Find your "Reset Time"
If you do a little experimentation you can determine your exact reset time. This time should fall between the hours of 10pm and 2am. Set the clock ahead to 10pm (you cannot regress the clock to this hour for this to work) after ensuring the Virtual Tank Store is reset and should change for the next day. Now open the game and begin playing in Virtual Tank Mode, periodically check the Virtual Tank Store to see when it resets. Note the time range between when you notice it reset and the last time you knew it didn't reset. Now you should have a much smaller window of time to run your Virtual tank in order to preform a Virtual Store reset.

7) Finding The Fish You Want Through Time Traveling
Combine the information listed above, with my Shopping Guide linked below to further enhance your Time Traveling success.

8 ) Thanks

9) Disclaimer
The author of this guide accepts no personal liability for "the bends" if you should for some odd reason still experience them, either by failing to follow the direction correctly or due to an

- After a while, He would opens his mouth with pearls which worth $250
- If you never click on his pearl, He would close his mouth eventually
- NIKO produce pearls that you can click on for a hefty sum of money
- Stories: One question that always comes up when talking about NIKO is: Why doesn't NIKO open his mouth more often? There is a reason for this. It is because NIKO thinks that opening his mouth may allow demons to steal his soul. Therefore, he keeps mouth opening to a minimum.

Itchy the Swordfish
- He attack aliens
- Gives out a angry look when fighting
- Quite fast, but not too strong at fighting
- ITCHY helps you by attacking aliens when they appear

Zorf the Seahorse
- Feed ur guppies with level 2 food

Clyde the Jellyfish

Vert the Skeleton
- Swim like a normal large guppy
- Drop gold coins
- Do not need to be fed
- VERT drops gold coin just like a large guppy, but doesn't need fish food to survive

CHAPTER 7
Aliens

Sylvester
- Slow
- Can't eat too much fishes at once
- Stories: SYLVESTER used to run a popular sushi bar in downtown San Francisco, but when he discovered a mysterious wormhole that led directly to the Insaniquarium, SYLVESTER sold the restaurant to pursue his lifelong dream: EATING ALL YOUR FISH!

Balrog
- Lion-like
- Speed: Medium
- Eats many fishes at a time
- Stories: Many people want to know: How does BALROG manage to keep his hair so thick and luxurious? BALROG answers: First of all, to keep the shine in my hair, I try to avoid using heated styling tools. I also like to use a wide-tooth comb while in the shower so that I can distribute my conditioner EVENLY. Finally, when sleeping, I put my hair in a scrunchie to prevent breakage.

Gus
- Can't be killed by lasers
- By overeating fish foods, he will die
- Stories: Many people wonder: What is GUS laughing about? Just what is so funny about killing innocent fishies? He's actually not laughing about fish. It turns out that GUS heard the following joke in 1984 and is still laughing about it: What did the daddy buffalo say to his kid before leaving the house? Bison!

Destructor
- Shoots missiles to your fishes
- Do not kill your fishes directly
- Missiles destroyed when clicked
- Stories: DESTRUCTOR was created many years ago by a brilliant scientist to be a toy for his favorite nephew. The nephew, unfortunately, was a sadistic little boy who liked to torture his pet fish. This is where DESTRUCTOR learned his destructive behavior. The scientist now readily admits, "Maybe it was a bad idea giving DESTRUCTOR those missiles."

Ulysses
- Creates energy balls and kill your fishes
- Do not kill your fishes directly
- When energy balls are clicked, It turn yellow and kill any fishes which is near by
- Energy balls are totally destroyed when it hit the walls or aliens in the tank
- Stories: One big "How Come" with ULYSSES is, How come ULYSSES doesn't just fire already-deflected missiles? Wouldn't this kill more fish and get the job done faster? The reason he can't do this is complicated, but it essentially boils down to a strict code of honor and fairness among cyclopses that precludes such unsportsmanlike behavior... and also, he's dumb.

PsychoSquid
- Incredibly Fast
- Eats many many fishes at a time
- Have a resting period time to time (turns blue)
- Gains health when you shoot him during his resting period
- Stories: PSYCHOSQUID's nickname was given to him by his ex-girlfriend. He could not comprehend when their relationship was over. He kept calling her as if nothing had happened. He would wait outside her door and ask what she had been up to. This is when she started calling him PSYCHOSQUID to her friends.

Bilaterus
- Incredibly Fast
- Two heads, but you have to kill them one by one
- Kill fishes whenever contact
- Fishes will also die when it contacts with the floating spine
- Stories: Hardcore BILATERUS fans often argue over which head is superior. Judy K from Minnesota writes in: "Obviously the pointy head is the brains of the operation. The round head is just an overrated Christmas ornament." Bob J from Alabama counters: "No way. Roundy is the MAN! Pointy is just along for the ride." Whoa, easy there, you two. This is one controversy that won't be settled today!

MiniSlyvesters
- Created by Cyrax
- Killed when clicked (like destructor missiles)
- Fast
- Stories: MINISYLVESTER was created by CYRAX to be a sort-of "Yes-Man" or "Toady". Originally he sought to make a MINICYRAX, but this plan was disastrous as the MINICYRAXes conspired to do away with their creator. CYRAX found the MINISYLVESTERs to be much more malleable to his will... or at least that's what they have led him to believe...

Cyrax
- The evil alien mastermind
- Creates Minislyvesters
- Very strong
- Strongest alien
- Do not kills fishes directly
- Stories: After losing the legendary Battle of Tank 5, Cyrax moved on and eventually became host of his own late night variety show. Some people call it a cerebral high-brow interview program, while critics have deemed it a lowest-common-denominator sleaze-fest. There is certainly no end of controversy to his show, and Cyrax wouldn't have it any other way.
