Aquanorns are amphibious, but they breathe a lot better under water than on land. In the first two life stages they still have legs which they can walk on, additionally to the already developing fish tail. However, in later life stages those short legs will disappear and they only will show a strong fish tail. From this life stage on they are able to swim.

Aquanorns are only able to swim with the help of a swimmer agent. Additionally, the genome of the norns must be adapted to it. There's no guarantee that "mixed" offsprings from Aquanorns and normal norns are able a) to breathe under water and b) to swim.

How to raise Aquanorns

After hatching, Aquanorns act quite independant. They will look very soon for the next lift, 'cause they want to "go down". As water usually is somewhere "down", their instinct tells them to go down and go into water. So make sure you place them near a lift near a pond or in the Aquagarden after hatching in order to allow them to reach the water they are looking for!
They are feeding on animals and they like the Foogoos a lot which can be found in the Aquagarden. They also like to eat seeds and they can also be raised with vegetarian food. However, it's more "natural" for them to look for fishes! Like normal norns, they should be reminded to eat throughout their life as they also tend to "forget" eating.
Aquanorns like to play with toys, just like all normal norns do. So make sure to give them something to play with. Swimming only isn't that much fun.


Aquanorns do it themselves, don't worry. The usual kisspop method does the trick for them as well! :-)

But please note:
Females normally lay their eggs on land. They can only lay their eggs under water if they aren't swimming and being located at the bottom of the pond. So it can take some time until a pregnant female actually lays her egg! You can speed this up by bringing the pregnant female on solid ground and soon she will lay her egg.

Eggs do not hatch under water! You have to take the eggs which are laid under water and put them somewhere on the land. There they will hatch normally.

Thanks for letting us know Abzu. Here's a mirror- might be faster than using the wayback machine.

Hi, I signed up recently. I wanted to let you guys know that using the wayback machine you can find an archive of the site with the aquanorn files available for download, get it now just in case others need it.

Ah, okay! Thanks for the info. :) I was mainly asking on behalf of Sothar; it would be nice if we had an alternative source somewhere, as seems a bit unreliable.

Yup, works fine for me! The is a really unreliable site, though. I've found that sometimes it doesn't work at all for me (with and without the www) while others see it fine. You might just need to check back at another time/day. That works for me, which is just odd.

'Fraid not. :( Why, does it work for you?
Jessica | 1/30/2014  log in to like post

Try putting www. in front of the link. Does this link work for you, Laura?
Laura | 1/30/2014  log in to like post

Yeah, unfortunately that page is still on the same domain that's currently down. Thanks anyway, though!
