The moderator wanted us to begin a new board due to the length of the other one. This forum will be for levels 25 and up - ONLY. If you're needing help with lower levels, please see our other message board, "Useful tips for Nemo's Reef."
At level 26, you need 283k XP to move on to 26. The tasks are to:
1) Plant & grow an Enigmatic Seed (10,000 SD & 6,000 Algae to grow)
2) Collect 4,000 Sand Dollars
3) Grow 3 Giant Green Seaweed (3,000 SD and 600 Algae each to grow)
This level brings no new guests or expansions.
New plants available:
Green Mangrove Propagule - 5,500 SD & 1600*3 Algae to grow, increases vitality by 1,250 (ORNAMENTAL)
Orange Feather Star - RARE, increases vitality by 5,000
**My recommendation here for fast leveling up is to plant large beds of Psychedelic Coral (75 XP per 90 min), Blue Mushrooms, Egg Shell Coral and Orange Tube Sponge (35/35/30 XP per hour) - this is if you are checking in on your game every hour or so. If you only check once or twice per day, go with some larger items - Cat's Paw (if you can afford it), Barrel Sponges, Yellow Small Grass, etc.
