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.

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:
