Very Good

Like Nintendogs, but with fish...

Decide which fish you want in which tank, Adjust water temp, if necessary, feed fish, watch fish. And clean tank. And put inaminate stuff, like Driftwood, in tank. And Coral.

Unlock more fish. Repeat.

Hey, if you don't have time, space or money for an aquarium, this "game" is for you.

You can exchange with other DS and Aquarium players.

My fave is the Jellyfish. Very slow, very beautiful. But I always forget what they eat.

Then, you can upgrade, so to speak, to another game: Fantasy Aquarium: Which has big fish.

Killer Whales, Seals, Dolphins, Penguins...ok, so those guys are Mammals, not fish. You also have fish, and, like Aquarium, there are others to be unlocked.

Also, you can exchange with other DS and Fantasy Aquarium players. And other regular Aquarium players!

It sounds like fun to put some Jellyfish in with some Seahorses.

However, I would recommend against putting a Killer Whale in a regular Aquarium tank.

Really Bad

I really thought this game was pointless. It sounded like fun but it had really bad interface graphics and too much jargin without the fun of the fish. The graphics of the fish and tanks were pretty good but nothing that was desirable or memorable. I rate this game a 2 only because it just wasn't fun. Actually for a fish game pretty boring.

Can't be considered a "game"

Oh lord. This is just painful. "Like Nintendogs but with fish"? One single dog in Nintendogs had more effort put into it than this entire game. The graphics are awful, the gameplay is nonexistent, and there's simply no effort to this whatsoever.
