|“||This fish has developed a taste for exotic food!||”|
— Meryl, The Fish Emporium
Virtual tank fish with the special attribute exotic diet will not eat food that is normally preferred by others of their kind. Instead, they will eat a special kind of food such as pizza, ice cream, or chicken. In the emporium, they are priced at 25,000 shells. A fish's additional notes will indicate which of the three foods they like.
Assuming January 1st of 2017 is day 1 and December 31st is day 365, fish with the exotic diet attribute are available from The Fish Emporium on days that are numbered evenly excluding those that end in 4 as in 0, 2, 6, 8, 10, and so on.
Ice cream is the favored food of whiffle balls.
Soccer balls prefer to eat chicken after growing out of their whiffle ball stage.
The beach ball fish favor pizza. Johnny V is also known to enjoy it.
