To change a fish, first select fish category, the species will be automatically changed to that category. Select a species within that category, then select fish size (1.0 ~ 2.99), press Change button to change the fish.
Press the Remove button directly to remove the fish from the tank.
When Up/Down buttons are used for value selection(such as fish category, fish species, fish size), use Left/Right buttons to move focus.

To have baby fish:
1) Wait until mother fish reach 4.0 in size.
2) Feed within a day.
3) Whenever aquarium is launched, there is 1/5 chance for a mother fish to have a baby.
4) A baby fish will stay with mother fish for 7 days.
Afterwards, the baby fish will be an individual fish when there are less than 20 fish in the tank,
otherwise the baby fish will be gone.

Tips:
1) You need to feed your fish daily.
During a day, one food pellet is enough for a fish. Fish would try to get extra food only after all fish in the tank have been fed.
2) It takes about 300 days for a baby fish (size 1.0) to be mature.
You could set “Fish growth speed” to 10 to shorten it to 30 days.
3) You could set “Fish growth speed” to 0 to disable fish growth.
4) If the “Fish die without food” option is checked under “Settings”, fish would die after 4 days without any food. But you could uncheck it to bring the fish back, then feed them.
