Can anyone give me some advice as to why after draining the barrel, I cannot get the coral. All that is left in the barrel is green slime and no coral. I've tried going from the beginning of the game again, but I get the same result and this is the last piece of the fresco that I need.

Any suggestions?

WELCOME TO THE POND Ants01 and remembersunshine

I don't recall any problems with this item, but I'll try to help. What do see when you peer inside the barrel, after draining it? There should be a disgusting amount of slime, and you can almost smell how foul it is, and feel reluctant to stick your hand in to get the coral anyhoo.

The coral should be peeking out of a big piece of green slime, at around 1-2 o'clock.
Can you be more specific about what you find?

There is a walkthrough for the standard edition which might help.

there are only slimes and no coral peeking at 1-2 o'clock of the barrel. i've tried the game twice. uninstall and install is. clicked all around the barrel just in case the coral may have become invisible.

That's so sad, and frustrating. To have progressed so far in a great game, and be stopped in your tracks by what sounds like a glitch. As I recall it didn't look like coral, but something was evident (maybe glinting in the sun?) in that spot. Maybe it was shiny. But as you say its all green slime for you.

Have you contacted the Customer Support people? They are very clever, and very helpful. Click on the green envelope to the right.....=>

You are not the only fishies with this problem, there are several posts regarding this in the tech issues thread. So far there's no fix, but if enough fishies contact BFG's tech support, you're more likely to get one. So, I second Kingaroy Joy's suggestion, contact tech support directly, they may even be able to help you with a work around without waiting for a fix from the developers. Let us know what they say. Good luck!

I can't get the coral to show or come up from the barrel. I thought I read where to find updates on these games. I have went back through this several times. If I can't get this to work. I want my money back. Kind of a lame game anyway. I guess I'll go now and try and find an update. AGAIN!

Still no coral. Where is the update that fixes this? I did not find anything on here or anywhere for that matter to help me resolve this problem. It takes for ever to download this game anyway. I have purchased far too many games from this site to just have them ignore me. Big Fish should come up to the plate and fix this asap.
