Hey parents and teachers! There’s so much for your child or student to do at Aquarium Academy, including customizing their very own aquarium. This tutorial is designed to help you understand how the aquarium works and how to get unstuck if you’re unsure how to rearrange it.

How does the aquarium work?

As children play, they are awarded fish and decorations for their aquarium by correctly answering rounds of questions, earning treasure chests, or using the in-game store (which uses earned in-game coins and not real money).

Once fish and decorations are awarded, they’re put into the player’s aquarium at random. There they can watch their fishy friends swim and learn about each one. Players can also move decorations around however they’d like to create a custom underwater landscape. Which takes us to the next point.

How do players rearrange the aquarium in Aquarium Academy?

Here’s a step-by-step tutorial to show you!


Step 1: From the homepage, go to your aquarium.


Step 2: Look at all those fish! … and then click the options menu in the top right corner.


Step 3: Select rearrange.


Step 4: Now you are in the proper mode to rearrange the aquarium!

Tap and hold the decoration you would like to move. Decorations can be move up and down, as well as side to side.

(Note: the arrows are for example and don’t actually show) 


Step 5: If you want to move a decoration in front of another – hold the decoration and press the button with the white square in front (right hand side).

If you want to move a decoration behind another – hold the decoration and press the button with the dark square in front (right hand side).


Unhappy with the changes you made? Press the “undo” button in the shape of a rounded arrow in the top right corner and your aquarium will go back to the way it was when you entered rearrange mode!


Now that you know how to rearrange the aquarium, it’s time to decorate!

Here are some example aquariums created by Aquarium Academy’s designer / developer to get you and your child or student started!
