Nemo’s Reef cheats, tips, tricks and strategy

1. Nemo’s Reef cheats – Start by building an Algae Bank

You will need algae to build up your reef, so best thing to do is to start by building this “Algae Bank”: a huge area (start with 10, grow up to 25 or so) of Fan Corals, which produce 2 algae each every 30 seconds. This way, you will stock up Algae pretty quickly, and you will need a ton of them!

2. Nemo’s Reef cheats – Build a Coin Bank too

In order to build those beauties, you will need to have coins. Similar to the Algae Bank, the “Coin Bank” is a big area of Yellow Table plants (15 to 30 should be good) that keep producing a couple of coins every 30 seconds. I know that both “banks” will take up a lot of space, but you will be really happy to have them, especially if you are pretty active with the game.

3. Nemo’s Reef cheats – Don’t Spend your Pearls!

I know that your instinct is to spend Pearls for those hints, but try not to – this guide is a good place to start your search for combinations that will attract good fish and I will post an article soon with all the combos that I found. Instead, save your pearls because there will be missions where you will have to spend a lot of them! So save as much as you can!

4. Nemo’s Reef cheats – Choose the right plants for your play style

Can you stay logged in a lot and tap the screen madly? Then go for smaller plants that are ready quick. If you log in only once or twice per day, a better idea would be to plant and grow the longer plants, because they will give you more goodies per harvest. Ideally, you should have a few fast plants (like the “Banks”) because you never know when you have several minutes to spare in the game…

5. Nemo’s Reef cheats – Be space-effective!

You will start running out of space pretty soon, even though it seems a lot at start. A good strategy is to group plants together, but if you want the looks on your reef, you can mix the 4 square plants with the decorative ones that require just 1 square. But the idea is to not let a single square go to waste, or you will lose coins, XP and ultimately fish!

6. Nemo’s Reef cheats – Rare plants from Mystery seeds SPARKLE

We usually get really disappointed with Mystery Seeds because they give us some pretty crappy plants, but there’s a trick to know if they will yield a rare one: they will sparkle a little. If they do, don’t move them or you will lose the sparkle. However, there’s no way to know what plant or if it will be a rare one and the only thing you can do is to plant a lot and hope for the best!

7. Nemo’s Reef cheats – Save coins and algae

You don’t really know how true this is until you get to the higher levels where you have to “feed” a plant 2,000 algae each time. So make sure you stockpile on gold and algae, because you will have to spend tens of thousands (if not more) to keep going!

8. Nemo’s Reef cheats – Take Your Time!

There is no real need to rush things over, just keep playing and enjoy the game and pretty soon you will have an amazing reef that your friends will love.

And these are our Nemo’s Reef tips, tricks and strategies that we have to offer. Let us know if you have any other tips to share with fellow players, I am sure they will be appreciated! And come soon on Android Entity for out guide to plant and corral combinations to bring in as many fishes, guests as possible!

    I am sending you this message in hopes that you will not reveal to the group or administrators of the NEMO’S REEF iOS/ANDROID FRIENDS & COOPS.
    ( ) Facebook page that I have messaged you regarding this issue. They have been taking documents from numerous sites and claiming as theirs, particularly Deborah Webb and information from this site. I found out about this from a member of their group that is also a member of a group I belong too. I too, will be somehow contacting them regarding this issue. They are a closed group and the administrator (Deborah Webb) is very selective who she allows in. My suggestion would be to join under a different name if possible to get approved then review what files they have copied or cut/rearranged then repasting.

    I found it helpful. I did not know about the spacing or feeding plants alge. Thanks for sharing!!

  • Cindy February 14, 2014, 9:33 AM

    Orange sea pen + orange tube sponge= 1 zoom in fish
    Yellow table plant + rock + red branches = 2 different smaller zoom in fish.
    Sea bush + violet marines hub = 1 zoom in fish
    Red carripians + lilac carripians (next to each other) = red octopus.

  • aly February 13, 2014, 2:14 PM

    Rose barrel+mauve bell sea pen!!!

  • Texashug October 28, 2013, 10:27 PM
