As the day went on, Twitter users began sharing memes and highlights from the stream, including Twitter user @fishtankdotlive, who live tweets the show. The contestant Josie, described as a shy, introverted artist and anime enthusiast in her bio, became a fan favorite for many. That day, Twitter[12] user @fishtankdotlive shared an image of her using a fidget spinner during the show, asking if it is contraband. Later that day, Twitter[13] user @RaptorFade shared a clip from the stream of her spinning in a chair, garnering over 210 likes in a day (shown below, left and right).

That same day, YouTuber Rocky Stream posted highlights of Josie "stimming" with toys from the house and of Damiel smelling the sheets on the bed, garnering over 28,000 views each in a day (shown below, left and right).

At around 1 a.m. EST, the show's host, Sam Hyde, playing the character Jason Goldstriker, entered the house and introduced himself to the contestants. During his visit, he lied and told them that MrBeast had shared the link and they had about 250,000 viewers. He also got each of them to reveal who they thought would be kicked out of the house first, ruined a puzzle that Josie put together by smearing pizza on it and burned a piece of pizza on the stove.

Hyde made the contestants take part in a challenge with a grand prize of $1,000 for the winner. For the challenge, Hyde placed eight piles of mixed jasmine and basmati rice around the house. He had each contestant pick a pile of rice and count the jasmine rice only; whoever was closest to the real number won. The winner of the challenge was Sylvia. He also told the contestants that the house was haunted by "the entity," which lives in the garage, after several viewers started allegedly seeing "orbs" on the garage camera (shown below, left and right). At the end of the night, Hyde asked the contestants to write essays.

Days Two and Three

On day two, Twitter[14] user @fishtankdotlive started a thread for coverage throughout the day, updating it regularly. At the end of day two, Hyde entered the house and had each contestant read the essays they'd written, which were uploaded to the Rocky Stream YouTube channel. Josie's essay was voted the best by viewers. The fish were then given a new challenge, where they were separated into groups and told to come up with an improv comedy sketch.[19]

Hyde also announced the concept of "fish bucks" that day, a form of currency that will be awarded to the fish when they win challenges.[24] Each fish buck is worth $500, which the fish can cash out at the end of their stay as long as they don't leave of their own volition.

On April 20th at around 8:30 PM est, Fishtank Live became unavailable. According to a tweet[15] posted by Hyde, the server host was charging $30,000 per day to stream with them and Hyde thought it was $30,000 per month.

Day Four

On April 21st, a temporary stream was hosted on the Sam & Nick's Perfect Clips YouTube[16] channel (shown below). That day, Twitter[17] user @fishtankdotlive started their day four thread. That afternoon, Hyde arrived at the house and told the contestants that the stream was down then proceeded to practice boxing and martial arts with them, leading Simmons to lead the other contestants in a form of Tai Chi sparring.[9] Later that day, Damiel and Jonathon got into an argument over what a mysterious bottle of liquid found in the kitchen was; it turned out to be vinegar.[18]

On April 23rd, day six began, continuing on the YouTube stream. Twitter[21] user @fishtankdotlive started a thread. At one point in the day, Vance accused H3H3 Productions of stealing jokes from him.[22] That day, Jet came in and had each contestant vote on who they thought the secret missions fish were (shown below, left). Later that day, Jet returned to tell them that nobody correctly guessed the two spy fish, that the two spy fish were awarded and their identities would not be revealed (shown below, right).

Later that night, the contestants performed their improv comedy sketches (shown below). The team consisting of Damiel, Jonathan, Josie and Mauro won and each member was awarded fish bucks. Letty was notably upset about losing and Hyde went to see her in her room to comfort her.[25]

Day Seven

The sharks brought him to the basement. A shark trolled Jonathan by pouring apple juice onto his clean sheet (shown below).

Later that day, Damiel was eliminated from the competition early for using his phone, posting a selfie[26] to social media and seemingly wanting to fight Jonathan. Hyde entered the house to talk about his elimination and reveal that the elimination challenge would still be taking place (shown below).

Week Two

Day Eight

On April 25th, day eight began.[28] That morning, Jon and Simmons had a heartfelt talk after Jon felt he mistreated Simmons as a friend.[29] Producers stopped their talk after it went on for hours (shown below). Jon and Simmons attempted to sleep on the couch together the rest of the night. Jonathan also revealed to the fish that he does not drink tap water due to the fluoride and has only drank coffee the whole time in the house.

Jet came into the house around 2:30 PM to explain that they would be testing the relaunch of TTS messages. Goldstriker entered the house around 5:56 PM and gave Jon a head guard that limits his visibility to help him train in pencak silat, a form of martial arts (shown below). Josie held a concert in her room for her stuffed animals.[30] Goldstriker told the fish that the website was back up and running at around 6:42 PM.

As the day progressed, viewers on social media began digging into Simmons' digital footprint, finding troubling things. Twitter[31] user @tommyvesec44 posted a screenshot of a book allegedly written by Simmons with a review that claims it's mostly about how to hook up with campers. That day, Twitter[32] user @fishtankdotlive shared excerpts from the book as evidence. Later that day, Hyde retweeted[33] a video of Simmons talking about the subject and "kissing kids" (shown below). The fish were paired up and given baby dolls that cry to care for as part of their next challenge, the "unplanned parenthood" challenge, the goal being for the winner to have their baby cry the least.

Day Nine

On April 26th, day nine began.[34] That morning, Jon and Simmons got into a slight argument and Jon admitted to having intrusive thoughts about killing his baby doll. Sylvia revealed that her boyfriend at one time was 60+ years old and the fish determined she met him when she was 16.[35] The TTS feature was reinstated and viewers began sending Simmons messages about his camp counselor book and calling him a predator, leading the fish to discuss the book (shown below, left). The fish became uncomfortable around Simmons[36] except for Jon, who kept on defending Simmons and gave him the benefit of the doubt. Jon and Simmons strategized on the baby challenge, with Simmons locking himself in the bathroom while Jon attempted to grab the other contestants' babies and shake them, leading to arguments between Jon and the fish (shown below, right). Mauro in particular started to argue with Simmons.

Later that night, Goldstriker came back into the house and read excerpts from Simmons' book to the fish, then proceeded to kick Simmons off the show, sending him to a bus station to return home (shown below, left and right). Jon felt ashamed that he defended Simmons and locked himself in the bathroom. Mauro decided to leave the fishtank as well. In a later post to social media, Mauro explained that he left because he felt "sick" after learning about Simmons.[37] Damiel was brought back into the competition.

Simmons allegedly went live on Discord after he was kicked out and claimed he was taken out of context, denying the allegations.[38]

Days 10 and 11

On April 26th, day 10[39] began. That day, Goldstriker announced the "jail" challenge, where fish were made to stay in one of the rooms for as long as possible to see who would leave first as Goldstriker and the sharks made it as difficult as possible. The challenge lasted into the morning of day 11 and ended with Josie, Violetta and Vance managing to stay in the longest (shown below).

On day 11,[40] the fish played a game of "Hyde and seek," where they all hid and Sam Hyde proceeded to destroy the house with a leaf blower.[41] Before the game began, Hyde gave Vance $1,500 worth of fish bucks for surviving the jail challenge, which he split with Violette and Josie, who also survived the challenge. The fish then played a game of "battle royale" with toy guns, where one shot equaled a kill and the last person standing won. Josie won the competition (shown below, right).

Day 12

On day 12,[42] Goldstriker announced that the grand prize was raised from $10,000 to $30,000. They then had a boys vs. girls hotdog eating competition, which the girls won (shown below). They were then brought to one of the bedrooms for a "seminar" while the sharks and Hyde messed up the house more. The fish were given a quiz to see who retained more knowledge. The fish were also recorded criticizing Violetta for being immature.[43]

Day 13

On day 13,[44] a member of the show's crew and an actor, Ben, came into the house and told the fish he "hates them." Nobody took Ben too seriously except for Jon, who seemed distraught about it (shown below).

Ben later apologized to some of the fish, blaming his behavior on drinking (shown below, left). He also talked to Violetta about a vague "Sylvia thing," suggesting she needed to be "talked down," but Violetta didn't buy it (shown below, right).

Day 14

On May 1st, 2023, day 14 began.[45] At around 12:15 pm, a Fishtoy was used that swaps everything in the fridge to the freezer. Around 2:34 pm, Letty accused Damiel and Vance of spilling an energy drink in her room, but they deny it. She expresses distrust for the other fish because nobody confessed to it. Letty continued to complain about it, inspiring Damiel to pour chili on her bed.

Later, Goldstriker entered the house and gave them their new challenge, where they would each be assigned a disability and had to live with a simulation of that disability (shown below). Letty had her arms tied to her body to live like a paraplegic, Josie was blindfolded to simulate blindness, Damiel was given a wheelchair, Sylvia was given headphones to simulate deafness, Vance was given "schizophrenia" and Jon was given crutches. He also warned Letty that a homeless man would be rooming with her for not being entertaining enough.

Josie was filmed tearing the eyes out of one of her stuffed animals to make it blind like her.[46] Some people online shared concerns that Vance was actually going crazy rather than just acting schizophrenic.[47]

Day 15

On May 2nd, 2023, day 15 began.[48] Early that morning, a shark dressed as The Entity visited Vance's room (shown below). Damiel and Josie shared a bed and the sharks came in to disturb their sleep.[49][50]

Day 16

On May 3rd, day 16 began.[51] That afternoon, Sylvia and Letty were filmed talking about Josie, suggesting she's more popular online than them.[52] Later that day, Goldstriker entered the house and announced the "handicap challenge sudden death" elimination challenge, where infractions for not acting disabled were doubled. Josie was immune from elimination because a shirt with her face on it being sold as merch was the highest seller. Goldstriker then assigned new disabilities to each fish and they proceeded to act with those disabilities (shown below).

By the end of the challenge, Jonathan was eliminated. He said his goodbyes to the fish and to Goldstriker (shown below, left and right). That night, a shark, likely Jon dressed as a shark, took Damiel's comics and vape out of his room.

Day 17

On May 4th, day 17 began.[53] That morning, Josie was sent a care package from viewers containing a Bible among other things. The night before, after Jon's elimination, Ben asked Josie to act more like Jon, then returned in the morning and told her not to.[54] At around 11:20 PM, Letter told Vance that Jon, who claims to have a girlfriend, tried to play footsies with her at one point and was coming on to her.

Tankman @AMG_1776 Letty claims that Jon was coming onto her, rubbin her feet and such. That he was the initiator. "I didn't even want to reveal that. I didn't want to f--- with his life" Such a snake. #fishtankliveupdate #fishtanklive 11:24 AM - May 4, 2023-67.2K Views 40: 11:18 AM

A bathroom "confessional" camera was also opened so that the fish can talk whenever they feel. That day, Josie was caught making faces on the camera (shown below).

Later that day, Goldstriker came into the house and announced the "happy camper" challenge. The floor was covered in green carpet for the challenge, meant to resemble the outdoors. The challenge involves all the fish sleeping in tents, having no lights but camping lanterns and not being allowed to use running water to simulate camping. The challenge includes several infractions fish can make that cause them to lose fish bucks. The person who convinces viewers they're actually camping the most wins three fish bucks (shown below, left). Letty was put in charge of supplies. Later that day, Simon, a new fish, was brought into the house to join the fishtank (shown below, right).

Jonathan also garnered a notable reputation among fans for his consistent talk about Andrew Tate and Hustlers University, frequent working out and his manner of speech. At one point in the first week, Hyde lied and told Jonathan that Tate had been tweeting about him and showed him a sigma grindset edit using footage from Fishtank to try and sell the lie.[10]

Jonathan was eliminated from the competition on day 16 after failing the handicap challenge.

Damiel became a topic of discussion and scrutiny early in the show when he was caught smoking weed from a vape pen on April 19th, 2023, the second day of the competition. The sharks took him to the basement and made him read his contract again, which says you cannot smoke weed. Some contestants believe Damiel is a plant by production. Damiel was eliminated from the show on the seventh day of the competition, seemingly for using his phone and for wanting to fight Jonathon, although some still believe he was a plant. His Twitter[27] account is @therealdamiel.

Damiel was brought back into the fishtank after Simmons was kicked out over allegations against him.
