Fish Tanks are furniture items. There are different sizes of fish tanks that can house different numbers of items.
Certain items can be added to the fish tank to change its appearance by holding the item and right-clicking on the tank. To get a list of the items inside or to remove them, right-click on the tank with empty hands. The location and appearance of the decorations and any stationary animals placed inside is random and can be changed without removing items by picking up and re-placing the tank.
Fish tanks are allowed to have the following contents:
|Decorations||1 of each type||Coral Seaweed Stone|
|Bottom Creatures||Limited amount, depending on type of fish tank||Moving: Blobfish Crab Crayfish Lobster Sandfish Snail Stonefish Flounder||Stationary: Clam Cockle Mussel Periwinkle Oyster Sea Cucumber Sea Urchin Super Cucumber|
|Swimming Creatures||Limited amount, depending on type of fish tank||Shrimp All other fish|
There are 5 types of fish tanks. The Deluxe Fish Tank is only available after completing the Tropical Fish special order. All fish tanks except the Aquatic Sanctuary are available from the Furniture Catalogue. The Aquatic Sanctuary is only available from Qi's Walnut Room and cannot be found in the Furniture Catalogue.
|Item||Price||Price||Price||Allowed amount of bottom creatures||Allowed amount of swimming creatures||Furniture size|
|Small Fish Tank||500g||0g||N/A||1||1||2|
|Modern Fish Tank||N/A||0g||N/A||1||1||2|
|Large Fish Tank||2,000g||0g||N/A||3||3||4|

Most of the swimming creatures either move around without animating (e.g., Pufferfish, Octopus) or move their tails / rear parts of their bodies at various speeds while swimming. However, some of the swimming creatures have unique animations:
- Eels and Lava Eels undulate up and down like a dolphin or whale (rather than side to side like an eel or other fish).
- Squids and Midnight Squids push with their tentacles much like the Blue Squid found in the mines with the Shrine of Challenge active.
- Stingrays flip their fins up and down as well as moving their tails.
|It's possible to place a hat on a Sea Urchin in any fish tank by selecting the hat and right-clicking on the tank.|
