Hints & Tips
Farther along in the game you will access Amp the electric eel.
In Time Trial you have five minutes to get the most money
you can. Spend the 4:50 seconds earning fish. They do
not need to be grown. Be sure Amp is ready to shock the
tank. When close to the end, activate Amp's power and he will
shock the tank. After that, every fish will be dead, but will
have dropped a diamond. Collect as many diamonds as you can.
Every diamond you collect earns 10 shells at the end.
You need to go through a number of steps in order to
make it. First, feed your two fish until they are at least
large. Then, upgrade your food quality until the maximum, but do
not buy any more guppies. After you have the money, upgrade your
food quantity to the maximum. Note:
This will be helpful in getting plenty of money. Then, when
those tasks are done, buy three more guppies for a total of five
in your tank. Feed them all so at least one is blue and the rest
are big. Then, purchase five more fish. You should now have ten
total fish. Make at least two blue, seven big, two medium, and
one small for the carnivore you are going to buy. You should get
a fair amount of money. When you feel that you are ready, buy
your carnivore, but no more guppies. Let the carnivore die, then
battle off any alien intruders to your tank. Make a lot of money
and upgrade your artillery to the maximum.
will be helpful for fighting off enemies. Finish this task in
each level and you will soon find the game easier.
Start a game with your two guppies
until they are both large. Make $500 and buy four more
guppies. Raise them all to be big, and at least one of them to
drop diamonds, or let them turn blue. Then, get your food
quality and quantity to the maximum when you have the money.
Then feed your guppies so they are all large or
blue. Make plenty of money, then buy your carnivore. Do not buy
anymore guppies until it dies. When your carnivore is dead, buy
five more guppies, giving you a total of eleven in your
tank if none of them died. Turn them all big and get plenty of
money. When you have enough money, buy your laser upgrade to the
maximum and beat all of the alien invaders. If you go
this way for a while, you should soon get all of the egg
pieces for every level, making the game easier.
Purchase plenty of fish, and turn them
all big. When you have enough, obtain maximum weapons, food
quality, and quantity. Then, kill all liens in your tank. Buy
all three egg pieces, and you will in time be on your way to
being an insaniquarium master.
Defeating the new monster
In level 2-3, the way to beat the new monster is to
feed it. A Star Potion will help make it weak. You can feed it
with fish food. The higher quality of the food, the faster it
will be die.
You can purchase this upgrade for 40,000 shells, but it is
only available after you buy all four bonus pets. This upgrade
will allow you to bring up to four pets in a tank instead of three.
In order to get Nostradamus. Go to Adventure mode and let your fish
turn green. When he drops snot the hungry fish will become
Nostradamus. If you keep on doing it you will have tank full.
Work your way up the food chain as fast as you can.
First, feed three guppies until you have enough money for a
carnivore. Buy a carnivore and feed it guppies until you have
enough money for another carnivore. Keep on buying carnivores
whenever the money is available and obtain maximum food upgrades
sometime after you buy the first carnivore. You will only need Food x4 or x5. There is no need to get all nine because you
should be focused on getting creatures higher up on the food
chain. Keep buying carnivores whenever you can. in time
you should have twenty carnivores and ten to thirty
small guppies swimming around. By then the diamond drops will
become vast and you would have completed the
level. You can get up to 20,000 coins by doing this in Time
mode. That is 1,000 shells every five minutes. Do not focus
on guppies focus on the larger fish.
