ARK: Survival Evolved Companion
Easy enough to tame that you don't need to trap it.
They're attracted to players and especially tames, so using anything from a turtle to a mosa makes taming them easy. They may swim off, but are easy to magnet back onto your tame.

If you’re on mobile and single player, don’t make a saddle! You get a free one after completing the tame icthy pursuit
Best for killing scorpions on bottom of ocean floor since they don't take torpor. Scorpions down there will knock any other animals out. Once you kill it, hit it with a pickaxe to gather black pearls. Very useful for the next update with tek gear.
Everyone saying that on ark mobile when you put a saddle on them nothing attacks them thats such a lie. I had an ichthy called michael and as soon as i tamed and put a saddle on him he got attacked by a pair of mated megoladons and i could do nothing but watch. It was a sad day :(
Acctually i tamed one in ark mobile and it these guys dont jump😑😑😑 but the BEST PART of the icthy when harvesting that they collect so much hide! SO MUCH HIDE THAT I CRAFTED A TRIKE SADDLE

Go to your profile and it should say tames _/_ tap that and then it will show you all the animals you’ve tamed that are alive. Then go to the one you lost and hit request! Hope this helps anyone who needs it.
Here's how to tame a ichthy.
1. You will want to search the ocean. They aren't hard to find, so seeing one will be no biggie.
2. Once you spot some/one, get some fish meat.
3. When you have the fish meat, go to the ichthy or the ichthy will come to you.
4. They are very friendly, so you don't have to worry about being killed; except for the creatures around it that will attack you.
5. Feed it fish until its tamed.
6. Now you have an ichthy!
How to tame:
1- build a decent size trap out of dino gates (I recommend 5 behemoths) in a shallow (er) water area
2- obtain meat
3- find dolphin and (try to) lead back to your trap
3.5- (optional if you're ok with wasting resources) use a couple of dino gates to limit dolphin's movement in trap
4- feed until tame
Bro everyone says these guys are easy to tame yes they are but it’s so so hard to get to them without being attacked
Press the up arrow if you can’t be attacked while riding on and icthy
Keep an eye on your surroundings when gathering with this Dino. It gets but once and will start darting around crazily like a Drone controlled by Michael J Fox
