[Sorry if this doesn't belong here.]

If me and my friend were to make a betta adoptable sim, do you think it would be worth it? Things you can do on it:

• Adopt bettas.
• Breed bettas [MAYBE]
• Forum with other players! But I would link this site to the game :-D
• Owning bettas, watch them grow.
• Different types to choose from, CT, VT, HM, PK :p
• Many colors, names.
• A challenge, allow clicks to get your betta to grow.
• Own as many bettas as you want.
• Buy bettas, from players or from the Local Fish Store, bettas are judged by real life prices from my LFS, and you get to start with $100 - $200 like a REAL person does.
• Realistic, so you don't have $1,000 and buy unlimited items.
• And much more

I am thinking, maybe this site could help people learn to care for bettas, or just a fun game for all betta lovers? Do you think I should make a Betta Sim?

Yes Or No?

The site will only be for fun, and learning about bettas, I will be linking a lot of things to Bettafish.com to support this site, and have other members enjoy it, and they can ask questions here :lol: So is it worth it? Ima have to get a art team :) And stuff, but i'll do it if it's worth it. And if you guys agree, what is a suitable name

I WUV BETTAS. This was my friends idea I kinda like it because I love owning bettas.

I played fish tycoon, but it's outdated I use to play it when it first came out... It doesn't bring my attention anymore, I also have it on my Android and Ipod, so I was looking for something "new" :D

Haha, same with me I might try to get it animated so it's realistic, the fish flares, swims around, takes a breath. It really depends :p Hehe, and for backup I will need some moderators and an art team to help me out though.

I will probably just watch my betta, draw him, scan it to my computer and then color and shade everything, depends :)

Not exactly, if my site was called "Fish Tycoon" had all there fishes in it, do the exact same thing, have them swimming in a tank with other fish then yes I could be sued.

But if I were just to make a Betta Sim where you can buy, adopt, sell, trade, interact with other members. Give tips on how to care for a betta, how they grow..etc, Not really.

Sounds fun! It would also probably help me cut back on buying real bettas, lol.

I doubt there would be any law suits. After all Fish Tycoon isn't the only one out there, I can think of quite a few fish sims on Facebook. And a Betta sim would be quite different from other fish sims. I'm assuming it would be set in a home, not a fish store, and each tank would only hold one fish (or maybe add otos, neons and corys?). Breeding would be nothing like the other fish sims, seeing as you have to remove both father and mother. It sounds very fun to play, really!

It would be a lot of work.. you would have to have the tanks themselves, medications, decorations.. breeding setups, jars for fish as they grow.. OK it sounds really fun, lol, but a labor of love. I'm sorry I can't code or I would so help!

Oh, maybe a virtual Aqua Bid.. with another name of course.

Okay, it's going to be harder once school starts I will probably be using a site that hosts sims on it. I might make the art animated so the fish swim, flare, take a breath. Depends if the site can take animated art.

The site will be called "The Last Splenden" after horrible breeding, discovering of the Splendens, and YOU having to leave your home having a company build over the Betta stream, only 2 bettas were found.

Those are some of the hints I will give out :) Idea's will be well appreciated.

You would be surprised if they sued those corperote lawyers are pretty convincing.
This sounds more like an online adoptable game rather than something like Fish Tycoon. I don't think they would be interested. Plus as MollyJean said, Fish Tycoon isn't the only fish sim out there.

Personally, I love the idea! I play on a few adoptable sites when the forums bore me. I would LOVE a fish-based adoptable site. I'd help with the art, but I'm a terrible artist. If you can get it up and running, I know a few places where I could advertise it.
