Nemo's Reef

How to Attract Fish

The story in Nemo's Reef revolves around who can build the best reef for a school project. Nemo and his dad Marlin are in charge of making this piece of the ocean appealing enough to attract different kinds of visitors and rare fish.

Placement of certain structures near others attracts visitors to come and live in your reef. For example, early in the game, a seahorse gives you a hint that it likes to hide in corals and plants matching its color, so you must build structures in orange and green for it to stay. Other quest hints are even more vague and there isn't much help to be found, unless you use Pearls to purchase extra hints. Save your Pearls! This little guide is here to help!
