Need for a good aquarium iOS game

After perusing for awhile through my iPhone App Store I realized there is a serious lack of a good iOS fish store or fish breeding game. Maybe I missed it, but I just don't see a quality game. I think it could do well but I have no experience in this realm of software

Ya. That just sucks. Every person I know with an aquarium would buy a well built game

The only good aquarium apps are tropica and mister greens ferts calculator. Everything else is a lame version of finding nemo.

It would be nice if something like the old Aquazone games were rereleased for iOS. I played that game for hours.

Fish tycoon is fun.

If you want a utility, download mistergreen's fertilizer calculator.

I like Insaniquarium. You can play it online. Uh... it's one of those click very rapidly games, if you're into those. Also, it's kind of quirky, which I enjoy.

Really want a game for iOS or android. Some sort of an app like game.

I have tried fish tycoon where you can breed fish and run a fish store. Game has been around forever. It was pretty crappy then and still pretty crappy now. I think you could probably sell it for 2.99 and make a good amount off it. I can't imagine what a well made game promoted on aquarium forums would do. Wish i knew more about software
