Niko is the second pet that players can get. He is a dark teal oyster with black eyes and purple "lips" that produces pearls that are worth a small sum of money.

BehaviorEdit

Niko quietly sits atop of a pillar or in an alcove in each tank, bobbing up and down until he opens his mouth to reveal a pearl worth $250. This can be very useful in earlier levels and as a Presto transformation in the beginning of each tank to produce the much needed money near the start of the level.

Niko opens up after 34 seconds and every 40 seconds after the first, and he will continue producing pearls even during an alien attack. 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.

In Virtual Tank, the pearl's value is 10 shells which is worth 100% more money than in Adventure Mode.
