Ultimate Chillaquarium Handbook

In this guide, you can get basic details and detailed information about the game.

Pack #1 – ‘Freshwater Friends’ + Pack Introductions

Here’s where your gambling addiction starts. Each selected pack gives you 4 assorted fish. These packs are similar to Lootboxes, (like SOME games..) meaning there is a rarity system.
Don’t worry about seperating tanks just yet, as far as I know, most of these fish are not carnivorous. Your friends are safe.

Although I can’t directly give you the percent chance of each rarity as of yet- I can closely estimate. Please take note that these are the most basic estimates, and most likely extremely inaccurate. (to be updated)

( * ) Mythic fish were added in patch 1.1. The update announcement says they “[are] 10x rarer than the legendaries!” and they are not required for achievements! 🙂

Finally, to your right you’ll see a basic fish card! To make this as short as I could, you only need to take note of the lock button, income per day, and the sell price of your fish. You can also rename any fish of yours to give them a bit more pizzazz~

If you want a… deeper dive… of your daily income. You can click this icon on the top right of your screen! you can sort your fish by rarity, color, income and value. This menu also shows your income per time value. (second/minute/hour/day)

This section will go over the Freshwater Friends pack.

The Ultimate Chillaquarium Handbook

Welcome to the first pack in the game! Here’s where you’ll get you first ever best friends (in game, hopefully not irl). Each pack of the Freshwater Friends cost $10.00.

The more rare the fish, the better the outcome and value of the fish is. The further right of the table, the better the fish.Thankfully, this is so you don’t need to rely on RNG to get the ‘perfect’ fishies.. You should love all of them. The available fish are as follows:

Pack #2 – ‘Rivers and Ponds’ + Shops

Welcome to The Shop!

Continuing off the topic of new housing, this section will dip your toes into the shop menus. If you, somehow, have not interacted with the Shop menu in any sense, I will simply assume you obtained rapid onset dementia and I will not blame you.
If you’ve explored the menu in any capacity- you most likely have noticed that there’s a LOT to buy. You can access the shop by either pressing tab on your keyboard, or interacting with the ‘Shop’ button displayed at the top right of your screen.

The sections of the shop are stored as followed;

The Ultimate Chillaquarium Handbook

( * ) Lights, Pebbles and Decorations (as far as I know) are purely used for decoration and have no effect on your money making capabilities. That being said, I will not go over decor.

The Aptly named Fish tab allows you to buy any and all packs available in game.
The Upgrades tab will be your ‘end goal’. Here you will find Fish food, as well as upgrading your current tanks- and buying new ones.

Each Fish Food upgrade gradually increases the XP given per fish food. You can feed your fish by holding or right-clicking your mouse. There are ways to cheese this method. One method I particularly use is to simply hold down your right mouse button, interact with your windows key, drag your mouse to your taskbar, and left click. This endlessly feeds your fish, and you can tab back in any time. In order to stop auto-feeding your fish, simply rightclick anywhere on your tank.

Purchasing and Upgrading tanks range from $100 to $1,000,000,000,000 (one billion) and is one of the most important roles of the game. More space to hold fish = More money making.

This section will go over the Rivers & Ponds pack AND Tanks.

The Ultimate Chillaquarium Handbook

Don’t be fooled by the name! You do NOT need to own a river and/or pond to own these guys! As long as you have room in your current Freshwater tank, you’ll be fine. Each pack of the River and Ponds cost $1,000 (one thousand).

Pack #3 – ‘Reef Fellas’

This section will go over the Reef Fellas pack.

The Ultimate Chillaquarium Handbook

Say hello to these lil guys. This is your first introduction to Saltwater fish. Essentially they are no different from their freshwater counterparts. If you haven’t experimented with tanks, now it’s time to start. Each pack cost $200,000 (two hundred thousand).

It is required to own a Saltwater tank, which can be found and bought in the ‘Upgrade’ tab mentioned prior for $300,000 (three-hundred thousand). All packs from now on require saltwater tanks to host fish.

Pack #4 – ‘Marine Dwellers’

This section will go over the Marine Dwellers pack.

The Ultimate Chillaquarium Handbook

Marine dwellers more like… uhmm.. more.. like… uh,… m… uhm… nvm. .

Also I am still very sad by the lack of crabs in this game. However, I do have high hopes for the future of crab hospitality. With all that stupidity out of the way, the Marine Dwellers pack is overall very standard, with nothing new added to gameplay. The main purpose of this pack is to help with money management and transitioning to the next and final pack of the game.
Each pack cost $50,000,000 (fifty million).

OH!! OH I GOT IT!!!! MEAN DWELLRS! HAH! get dunked. ouuu.. too late. Joke passed.

This is the final and most expensive pack of the game, with a cost of $15,000,000,000 (fifteen billion). These fish are the end goal for all things money. Collectors will also love these fellas for the sheer amount of ‘schmunie they give.

Fish Variants & A Collectors Guide

The Ultimate Chillaquarium Handbook

Anyways, now that you’ve played the game (hopefully) and messed around with packs- You should’ve noticed a few odd fish ’round town. Maybe some extra special ones, if you’re lucky!

These fish in question are Painted, Gold and Rainbow Fish! Similar to shiny Pokémon, these fish have an exponentially lower chance to encounter than their regular counterparts.

To keep a common factor, I will be displaying all possible variations of Carp. Take note of how their value and income increases with the rarity. Also notice how their XP requirement does not change.

Painted Fish

Painted Fish are by far the most common of all the fish variants, having an estimated 1/8 chance. Painted fish often are monochromatic or hue-shifted variants of the default sprite.
Painted fish double the income and value of a fish.

As of v1.1 of the game, some fish have multiple painted color sprites. Example below shows all possible Painted Axolotls as well as their non-painted counterpart. All colors are believed to have an equal chance of appearing.

The Ultimate Chillaquarium Handbook

(this screenshot is staged and it took me hours to do. what i do to make you guys happy..)

Gold Fish

Gold fish are AMAZING. That being said, they are really easy to get. They have around a 1/512 chance of being pulled. They are an essential way of money-making. Golden fish, not to be confused with gold fish, are actually gold in color… More like a bright yellow, but you get what I mean.

The Ultimate Chillaquarium Handbook

Golden fish have a value and income 10x larger than of their normal counterparts.

There is a exponentially rare event where you could get a ‘Golden Pack’. These packs guarantee four assorted Gold fish without fail. Golden packs also change appearance from their normal packs. (Right)

Both Gold and Rainbow fish have a ‘pity system’. Similar to a Gacha/Lootbox system, these guarantee the aforementioned fish. The pity system is applied after encountering double-odds. (For gold fish, the timer is 1/1024 and for rainbow fish, the timer is 1/16384) Obtaining either gold or rainbow fish will reset the timer.

Rainbow Fish

These fellas are similar to pre-gen 6 Shiny pokemon, having an estimated 1/8192 chance of being pulled. These sprites have a spectrum changing rainbow effect. One more unique trait regarding the rainbow fish include the spectrum changing the text of the fishes name.

Although these fish are incredibly hard to obtain, they- by far- are the best money makers in the game, essentially multiplying both the income and value of a fish 25x.Not to flex but i have two rainbow commons as I write this B)

TLDR; Money Laundering Schemes + Hoarding

Yeah, no. I get you. I spend ALL this time on a guide but you want the quick and easy no-brain route. That’s fine. I’m not mad at all. (all jokes aside- fr I understand.)

For ALL Packs, I recommend going for Rainbow or Golden versions of Fish. Painted fish are also amazing in money making. The higher the Rarity, the more output they will give.

DO NOT SELL LEGENDARY FISH*

  • Selling fully grown legendary fish is one of the worst mistakes you can ever do, especially early game.
  • Only sell legendary fish when you can guarantee an upgrade in value. (Ex sell your Whiptail Catfish for an Arowana)

SELL BABY FISH

  • I will admit I still have problems with this. As long as you have disposable income, don’t be afraid to sell baby fish. Although they give no money in return, it is much easier to get into the sigma grindset with no children- AHEM reroll and lock important fish, instead of waiting hours or days to fully grow a useless fish.

This is also an amazing method for collectors and achievement hunters. In case you didn’t know, whenever you obtain a golden fish from a pack, it will make a loud audio prompt. I personally do not know if this also goes for rainbow fish, however. Happy hunting!

Personally Use & My Tank Setup

For both my freshwater and Saltwater tanks, I like to keep the setup of;

  • First tank is (nearly) always empty. Use this tank to open packs and send baby fish to your other tanks.
  • Second tank is for money making. Have only high-income fish. Do NOT put high sell-value fish in this tank.
  • Third tank is for Collectors. If you’re a collector, feel free to hold your golds/rainbows/friends in here. Always make sure to keep them locked, too 🙂

This method is not foolproof, and you can definitely optimize this in any way you see fit.

Some of the easiest fish to obtain for me were;

  • Early-Game Freshwater: Whiptail Catfish, Discus, Ramshorn Snail
  • Early-Game Saltwater: Leafy Seadragon, and Cowfish
  • Late-Game Freshwater: Arowana, Sturgeon, and Arapaima
  • Late-Game Saltwater: All Squids, Giant Pacific Octopus, All Sharks, and Gulper Eelshe
