MyReef 3D Aquarium

Dive into a beautiful 3D aquarium on your iPhone or iPod Touch!

MyReef 3D is a saltwater aquarium that fits in your pocket – customize your tank and interact with the fish, or just sit back and enjoy life on an exotic coral reef.

With 30 types of vibrant tropical fish to choose from, MyReef 3D features scientifically accurate species-specific movement and interaction. You can individually select the inhabitants of your aquarium, care for your fish by feeding them, watch them form schools, and even annoy them by tapping on the “glass.”

Two dynamic cameras let you choose your view: The fish-camera allows you to zoom in on a fish, automatically following its movements, and the auto-camera focuses on points of interest while you relax. Use common touchscreen gestures to control the camera, sound, and customize your aquarium with backgrounds and accessories.
It’s never been easier to enjoy the benefits of an aquarium – from the joys of pet care to relief from everyday stresses, MyReef 3D puts it all in the palm of your hand!

How to Care for Your Saltwater Reef


Open the configuration menu by tapping the lower border of the screen.

To use the fish camera, tap the menu entry “Cam F,” then tap the desired fish to activate the camera mode. You can activate the auto camera automatically by tapping the menu entry “Cam A.”

To feed the fish, tap the feeding symbol to activate feeding mode, then double-tap any area on the screen to drop food into the aquarium. To knock on the glass, activate the knocking feature in the configuration menu. To switch from day to night mode, tap the light symbol in the configuration menu. To configure your fish, sound, and other items, tap the setup button.

Fish Setup

Fish Setup allows you to customize the population of fish in your aquarium.

Use swipe gestures to select the type and the add/subtract buttons to select the quantities of your fish. Each fish species has a specific weight depending on fish size, and as aquariums have fixed capacities, the total amount of fish your tank can hold depends on the combination of species you select. For fish highly aggressive against their own species, there are also limits as to how many you can have in your tank. To automatically populate your tank, tap the “auto” setting. To remove the fish population in your tank, tap “clear.”

Global Setup

Global Setup allows you to configure the sound and device orientation settings.

To play background music from your iTunes library while viewing your aquarium, open your desired playlist in the iPod application prior to starting MyReef 3D. You can then switch between songs, pause, or control volume from MyReef 3D. If the iPod is paused or stopped, the bubbling sound of the tank starts automatically.


Interior Setup allows you to customize your aquarium’s background and accessories.

Browse these items by using the arrow buttons. To place a selected item in the tank, tap the item and drag it to the desired position in the tank. If an item is colored red (indicating lack of room to place the subject), wait for the color to subside before placing it. To automatically configure your aquarium, simply tap “auto.” To remove a selected item, tap the “clear” symbol. To remove all items in the tank, tap the “clear-all” symbol. Use the “back” button to resume aquarium view.
