Introduction
Welcome to Oceanzer's care guide! I notice a lot of confusion among new members and I am going to prevent that by giving you tidbits of information that will serve as a guide in your first few days of the game. Many questions are continually asked in the forums so to prevent the clutter I've narrowed it down to these few paragraphs. Getting the basics down is essential to the overall knowledge of this game.

Start of a New Day
Upon logging into your account, a marine animal will be ready for you. If you have not registered an animal validly, do not panic. Click: Play, Marine Animals, My Marine Animals; and you will be given a selection of marine animals. Once your animal is registered and you click on it's box, a new day will start. Your animal is now one month older. It does not cost you hourglasses unless you decide to keep aging that animal during the same day. (Your amount of hourglasses can be seen by clicking; Your username in the top right corner of the page and scrolling down to the fifth option My hourglasses ( ).) If you provide your animal with a Clepsydra, then you can play with your animal without limits. If you are a member of the Oceanzer Club, then you do not have to wait until the next real day to age your animal without losing hourglasses!

Feeding
Each marine animal consumes a different food but they all have the same effects.
--Baby Razorbills eat small plankton and fish
--Baby Emperor Penguins eat a handful
--Baby Orca Whales eat larva and a little fish
--Baby Sharks eat larva and a little fish
--Baby Gulls eat some pieces of Meat
--Baby Fin Whales eat algae and larva
--Baby Seals eat larva and a little fish
--Baby Polar Bears suckle their mother
--Baby Albatross eat pieces of meat
--Baby Sandwich Tern eat pieces of meat
--Baby Octopi eat unknown

Baby (One and Two Month old) marine animals increase their strength by 50% when they consume food. Once the animal is 3 months old, it can finally hunt for prey and find food for itself giving 20% strength at most. There is a limit to the amount of food you give your animal; once the feeding button becomes unclickable, usually after three times of performing the action. The feeding button is located directly above the “Start a New Day” Tab.

Water Source
At the age of three months the animal can drink water at the “water source” or “surface.” This is helpful because you minus ocean danger by 5% and marine parasites by 5%. You also gain 5.5% strength. This button is located directly to the right of the feeding button.

Protecting
Always remember to click the “Protecting the Ocean” button each virtual day to avoid the animal’s health status from going down. (You deduct 35 shellz)

Healing Injuries
If your animal is injured, do not wait to cure it. Immediately treat it or your animal's health will decrease dramatically. The injuries would be posted above the strength bar. If your animal has "no specific illness," then their is nothing to worry about. If you are not successful treating the injury at first, keep doing the action and eventually it will work. These remedies are the only way the injury will be healed!
--Big Injury: Surface for air or water source
--Small Injury: Surface for air or water source
--Loss of territory: Defend territory
--Kicked out of Group: Defend territory

Month by Month with your animal
Month 1: Register your animal into a Reserve so you can immediately start training
Month 3: Animal can feed itself
Month 6: Animal can live a wild life
Month 10: Animal can learn to protect itself against predator attacks
Year 1: Animal can defend itself
Year 1, Month 3: Animal can go and attack other territories belonging to other marine animals, compete in the Oceanzer competitions and championship!
Year 1, Month 6: Animal can reproduce or publish and offer to reproduce


Important Information to Grasp

The State of Your Animals Health
The health, the strength, the ocean Danger and the marine Parasite lets you know the state of your marine Animal. Make sure that these indicators are always as close as possible to the maximum, at the risk of seeing your marine Animal Die. It's extremely important that your marine Animal's health never goes below zero. Every action you do could make their health fall. Over time, you will get to know how to keep your marine Animal at a high level as they carry out the actions they need to develop properly. As of right now, your marine Animal is under your responsibility. Make sure you take good care of your pet every day. *Game Help*

Strength
You must make sure that you keep your marine Animal's strength at the highest possible level in order to do lots of activities during each virtual day. It's the strength that lets you do the different activities in the game. Some actions will actually increase the strength each virtual day. Find them, see how they work and how they effect your marine Animal so you can make the most of the game. Also: be careful how much you give your marine Animal and avoid being excessive. *Game Help*

Gobal Capicity
The global capacity corresponds to the potential of your marine Animal in the different specialties (speed, movement, vision...) and in the global level. It's up to you to take the best care of it to make it's potential a reality! The global level increases as you make your marine Animal do actions which will improve its specialties. Your goal: reach or even pass its global capacity. *Game Help*

Marine Animal Specialites
Your marine Animal has 6 specialties: speed, movement, vision, attack, fleeing and instinct. The goal of the game is to increase these specialties as much as possible. Note that the maximum of these specialties is defined by your marine Animal's capacity.In Oceanzer, the species have different capacities. For example, a marine Animal of species "X" will have a capacity in the "speed" speciality which will be much higher than for another marine Animal of species "Y". If the capacity in the "speed" speciality is for instance 90, it means that the marine Animal can reach at most (without any bonuses or objects) 90 of level in "speed". To improve one's marine Animal to 100% of his/her capacity, the player will have to play a lot with his/her marine Animal and will have to participate in challenges. Then the bonuses and objects allow your marine Animal to significantly increase his/her level to exceed his/her capacity. *Game Help*

Breeding (Year 1, Month 6 +)
Reproduce is the only way to make new marine Animals appear with increasing capacities. There are always two marine Animals that come into play, they are called the "ascendants" marine Animals. The "descendant" marine Animal is the result of this action. The "ascendants" and "descendants" marine Animals form together a lineage. If a lineage is made up of marine Animals of the same and unique species, these marine Animals are then called purebred. If these marine Animals have multiple species, then they are qualified as non-purebred. According to the average of the two ascendants' natural Selection Index, the new marine Animals' global capacity will be higher or lower than the average global capacity of the ascendants. If the average of the two ascendants' natural Selection Index is equal to 50, the global capacity will remain the same. However, if it is higher, the capacity will improve.
The higher the average of the two ascendants' capacities, the more the new marine Animals will be able to soar !

To Reproduce, you must have at least 1000 shellz', in addition to the price asked the marine Animal's player. Otherwise, you may not be able to properly take care of your new marine Animals.
Be careful, if you wish to Reproduce but are not sure to have the means to properly play with the new marine Animals, we recommend that you refrain from doing it ; there are already too many abandoned marine Animals! *Game Help*

Conclusion

The natural Selection Index or "genetic Index" is a key indication in Oceanzer, it determines your progress in the game. The game's goal is to improve your marine Animals' species. In order to do this you must Reproduce which will allow you to welcome in new marine Animals. These marine Animals will have a higher or lower global capacity than their ascendants depending on the average natural Selection Index of their ascendants. The higher this average is, the more the marine Animals' global capacity improves !

The genetic Index varies according to the activities you do. Some actions can greatly increase it, for example all the ocean Challenges. Only experience in Oceanzer will permit you to understand how to maximize the genetic Index in a minimum of time ! Be careful, some characteristics such as the age, the gender, the species, the health, the strength, the ocean Danger or the marine Parasite can impact the genetic Index, you will find out while progressing in the game! This indication permits you to improve the new marine Animals' global capacity only when the mean of their ascendants' natural Selection Index exceeds 50%. To sum up, the calculation is very simple : if the average natural Selection Index of the two direct ascendants is superior to 50% then the new marine Animals' global capacity will be higher to the average capacities of the two direct ascendants ! This will result in an improvementof the species. Your marine Animals' global capacity will develop in a way permitting to improve their global level indefinitely. This improvement is even more important in the best specialities of your marine Animal. This indication will only reach its maximum when you took really good care of your marine Animal ! Game Help

If you have any more serious questions please post in the correct forum or below. Thank you and have a sunny day.

sorry for the late responce,
the aging button is almost beside your animal (old version of veiwing your animal), now all animals have backrounds, so the aging button is below the backround on the top right, it is called 'Start a new day'.

You must register in a high ranking Reserve. You can find them by selecting the "rank" filter when you are choosing to enter your animal in a reserve. It will then show up.
