EGG FARMING

Everything you need to know about "breeding" fish for beginners, intermediate, and advanced players!!!


First and Foremost.....if you have not learned the Full Tension Fishing (FTF) technique yet, please go to that thread (further down the home page) and come back when you have learned it. It is not necessary to learn it to start "egg farming", but to master egg farming, it will be required.

The entire reason behind "egg farming" is to earn stars as easily as possible. For the beginner, there are several "3 star fish" capable of "egg farming". They include:

Alligator Gar   Secret Garden
Nile Perch    Secret Garden
Goliath Tiger   Secret Garden
Isurus     Clam Beach
Saw Edge Perch     Windy Area
Sunfish       Windy Area
Sturgeon     Manglo River
Giant Grouper    Deep Blue Hole
Tiger Shark     Deep Blue Hole
Wels Catfish    Kalde Lake
Atlantic Halibut   Paho Shore
Northern Pike     Emerald Fjord
Golden Ribbon Sea Bass  Evening Sunset Wharf
Great Barracuda   Golden Viewing Platform
Laced Moray Eel  Whirlpool Cave

The first 3 at Secret Garden are the ones to focus on initially. As you gain new rods, equipment, training, and luck, these will get easier and easier to catch. As you are able, you can turn your"3 star" tank into a "6 star" tank. The 6 star egg dropping fish include:

Atlantic Wolffish    Weird Rock Bridge
Killer Whale      Sunset Rock

These "fish" (KW is a mammal) are much harder to catch and will most likely need the FTF ability. I first started farming AW with a Platinum Rod +8, but the constant updates from gamEvil quickly forced me to learn FTF. Since then, a new 9 star egg dropping fish has been released and it is the:

Giant Barb     Lotus Pond
Bull Shark      Karibou Estuary
Goonch Catfish    Wapipi Falls
Chinese Paddlefish    Lion's Teeth River

When you read on the blog about a 3, 6, or 9 star tank, farming, breeding, or getting an egg, this is what everyone is talking about. 

When "egg fishing" Frequency and Luck are the key. The higher the luck you have, the better the chances of catching an egg you have. The more often you fish your friends' tanks, the more often you catch an egg. This is the same for 3, 6, and 9 star tanks. As your luck increases to over 100, (including master's baits)  if you do not catch an egg with 3 or 4 of your friends aquariums, log out, wait 15 minutes, and try again. It seems to have a dramatic effect with your catch ratio (thank you Nest20).

Many people ask, "how much should I fish and feed"? That is up to you and your time to play the game. Now that we have 100 in game friends instead of 50, I feed 4 and fish 1. But, when I was a 3 star tank player, I would fish all 5 of nearly all 50 of my friends to earn eggs!! In the end, you need to decide how many to fish and feed based upon how many eggs you need, how often you catch them, and how high your luck is. In order to increase your luck, have your highest rod, gear, and bait (Lucky, Beginner, Expert, Master) equipped. It will give you a noticeable advantage!!!

Please post any and all relevant info that I have missed (I'm sure there is a lot) to help our fellow players learn to farm eggs!!

Good Luck and Happy Fishing to You All!!

  2. Can you get eggs from Big Black Snakehead or similar fish (ie. Monster Pike, King piracua)

    1. No. Monster fish do not drop eggs. If you have friends with tanks full of them, get rid of them as you'll never catch an egg from them. At the moment, EVERY fish that can drop eggs for stars is listed above.

    1. That's a really bad drought. The worst I've heard of. I can only recommend the info that's already out there...
      Visit friends tanks daily
      Feed 2 fish 3 or vice versa
      Use some energy first. Don't try with a full energy bar.
      If you don't catch an egg within 5 attempts, log out, then back in.

      Hope this helps.

  7. it is all about luck ... that day I've read a paragraph in this blog about luck and how to figure out the time of fishing or even for drawing lucky cards ... well, in brief you can try fish in any location using A grade bait ... for example, if you are fishing is Red Lotus and you got like 3 Bluefin Notho and 3 Saberfin Killie and like 1 Black Ghost and 1 Chinese Sucker ... then you should know that it is not the right time to do anything related to LUCK ( don't fish for eggs, don't try to upgrade your equipment, don't try to fish for boss fishes, don't draw lucky cards, etc,..) just wait for like 30 mins to 1 hour then try again ... if the ratio of catching expensive fishes is higher then you can go for fish farming or upgrading or drawing lucky cards ... try also to keep some eggs (like 5 or 6 eggs) if you like to upgrade or draw lucky cards ... IT REALLY has an effect .... if you draw lucky cards (rare one) and you got like 13+ gold or like some stars rod or like potion ... then again it is the right time to do anything related to luck...

    wish that could help ...

  27. Quiznoav: Hey all, just wanted to share this, maybe it will help somebody. About 2-3 years ago I got a seasonal rod called a Fortune Clover for St. Patricks Day and put it in my collection and forgot about it. Now I started egg farming and noticed this +30 luck rod sitting there with no upgrades, so I started using it, from a +21/+50 Twilight to what is now a +15/+16 Fortune Clover, both with Masters Bait, I have QUADRUPLED my egg catches. So long story short, check your rods, and if you have this one, start upgrading/combining it. It will FTF fairly well even at this low level, enough to catch GB's. I am excited to see how it improves, I am trying to combine with only SSS and up. Hope it helps, Good luck.
