MyReef 2

Dive into a beautiful 3D aquarium on your iOS device!

MyReef 2 is a saltwater aquarium that fits in your pocket – customize your tanks and interact with the fish, or just sit back and enjoy life on an exotic coral reef.

With 48 types of vibrant tropical fish to choose from, MyReef 2 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 2 puts it all in the palm of your hand!
