Niko is the second pet that you can get. He is a teal (dark cyan) oyster with black eyes and purple "lips".
Niko opens up after 34 seconds and every 40 seconds after that to reveal a pearl, which can be clicked on for $250. In Virtual Tank, it's value is 10 shells. Even if there is an alien attacking, Niko will still open his mouth.
One question that always comes up when talking about Niko is: Why doesn't Niko open his mouth more often? There is a reason for this. It is because Niko thinks that opening his mouth may allow demons to steal his soul. Therefore, he keeps mouth opening to a minimum.
Niko produces an average of $6.25/sec. This is less than Shrapnel's $8.33/sec, but does not bear the risk of killing fish instead.
- In the downloadable version of TyperShark, many oysters resembling Niko can be seen in bonus rounds.

- Niko's pearl is worth $250, witch is half of Beetlemuncher or Brinkley pearl value.
- If Presto is transfered into Niko, it will appear on the bottom of the tank isntead of normal Niko's location, even when it is possible (when Niko falls trough his location).
- In Sandbox mode, if you spawn multiple Nikoes, they will appear as one. You can still get pearls from multiple Nikoes, just wait for its sound to play, then click on it.
