  1. Only the fish can hit thru the rock... otherwise u have to clear them all the way thru.

  2. Still did not manage to pass that level. Hit the bottom squares times and nothing.

  3. Clear all the regular jelly first. Be very careful not to hit any fish, or special candy that will hit the rocks at the bottom while you do this. THEN, and only then, hit the fish. Two fish is all you need to clear the rocks.

    1. that doesn't work on an Ipad. I cleared all the jelly making sure I didn't touch the bottom 3 candies with stripes and then used the fish. The fish just ate random candies and didn't go anywhere near the bottom squares.

      I've combined fish with stripes, fish with wrappers, fish with powerups (or whatever those clusters are called), twice combined powerups with stripes in one attempt, combined stripes with wrappers and every other combination I can think of.

      I think there's a bug that makes this level impossible on the Ipad

  4. Yes, only fish can eat the jelly under the rocks.
    I failed when I used stripe to hit the bottom rock three times.
    And I passed when I used fish only two times.

  5. Thank you!! Without your tips I never would have done it!

  6. Thanks for all that post here and help!! With this help I reached it finally, I even got 20 moves left at the end!!!! Finally after 2 days its done! Good luck guys!!!!!

  7. I dont know what the secret to this level is. I have cleared everything on the board except the 3 little rocks on bottom left/center/right corners. But even there I hit each one twice. Im not sure what Im doing wrong. I think the game has a glitch

    [I also have this problem, and how to do?]

    ReplyDelete
  8. I've cleared everything too. I had all the 3 fishes and Whatched out that i clear no rock. After that i used the fishes but they dont clear the rock, they clear any candys without gelee on the desk. Im very angry about that. What shell i do?

    1. I faced the same problem too - Nones of my 3 fishes can kill rocks. It seems to be a bug since the demo shown was played on facebook. However, I am playing on Android phone, and the app with level 285 was just released two days ago only.

      Delete
    2. Yeah.. same prob.. ive cleared all regular jelly n save 3 fishes.. but none of the fish can kill rocks instead clear any candy..

      Delete
    3. I too am on an android phone... I have cleared all the jelly many times but the fish never touch the blocks... They just go for the remaining candy.... If only the fish can complete the level then at the moment it's physically impossible!!

      Delete
  9. The fishes don't kill rock. And too often when I fail, the box said there were 3 jellies to be clear but in fact there were 4 !!!! A bug or a glitch or whatever.....

    ReplyDelete
  10. I also save all the three fish but those fish just not going toward the rocks, what the hell!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Same here- iPhone, just got the update. I save the fish and don't clear rock. Not working

    ReplyDelete
  12. Ditto!!!
    On iPad: cleared all jelly except 3 bottom rocks, next used 2 or 3 fishes--but the do NOT go down to the bottom rocks as shown in the video above. They simply clear other candy on the board. :-/

    ReplyDelete
  13. Same here. I save the fish until the end when all the other gelatine is gone, but the fish just won't go to the rocks. They just eat random candy.

    ReplyDelete
  14. The tip does not work on Android. The fishes do not go under the rocks.

    ReplyDelete
  15. The same thing happened to me. I went onto my laptop and played it through my Facebook account and sailed through it 1st time. I then went back to using it on my android. Hope this helps :-)

    1. Oooh--good tip! I'm going to try it now--thanks!!!
      (And why didn't I think of that?!?)

      Delete
  16. The same thing to me, i saved the fish after clearing all the gels and the fish just wouldn't eat the bottom 3 chocs. I have a picture to prove it.
    I am playing on the iphone, all the YouTubes are from PC? So not sure if there's any differences.

    ReplyDelete
  17. You have to play this level on the computer. Playing with an iPhone/iPad/iPod or and android will not work!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Agreed. I switched to play on my computer and got past the level right away !!!!!!

      Delete
  18. When I clear the jelly in the middle then hit the fish the fish don't head for the rocks, the just hit a random three blocks in the middle

    ReplyDelete
  19. Same here sum 1 plz help!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. UTTERLY ridiculous level!!!! stucked for DAYS!! followed all tips n tricks and that bloody fish just chose to eat random candy but not the bottom three!! argh!!!any pro can help me play n get this level over n done with! am tired of reading n following the tips! ='((((((

    ReplyDelete
  21. I can confirm this is probably a glitch and CAN ONLY BE BEAT on a desktop/laptop computer. So stop asking for help and posting that your stuck and just go onto facebook from your comp and beat the level already!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Definitely the way to go, i passed that 'dang' level now from PC.

    ReplyDelete
  23. But why is it possible to do it on a laptop and not on an iPad etc??????

    ReplyDelete
  24. Impossible to do from iPad/iPhone bc like the rest of the game it's full of glitches.. I'm glad I wasted so many lives on this board before I found this thread,,.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Please do something in order to solve the problem above! I NEVER used pc,just my Android and i don't want to change my play mode and break my personal record!!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I totally agree, don't want to get the app on facebook but only on the phone....

      Delete
    2. Same here! Why can't they just fix this problem for phone users! !

      Delete
  26. thanks for the tips, it is indeed two fish required to clear the bottom 3 squares, not necessarily to clear the entire square at the bottom but first you must clear ALL existing jellies before you utilise the fish to clear the last 3 at the bottom, good luck.

    ReplyDelete
  27. if you're having trouble with the fish not going to the bottom 3 squares I think that's a glitch on the mobile app. after trying for weeks on my phone and seeing the fish never go there.I played on Facebook and passed the level no problem because the fish went right to the bottom 3

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Same here .. the fish doesn't go to the bottom rocks on Android.

      Delete
  28. I tried for days on my phone and IPod, after reading these posts, I won on the first try using Facebook on my laptop. Good luck all!

    ReplyDelete
  29. In order to pass this level ... Play on Ann actual computer .... YOU WILL NOT PASS ON IPhone or pad or android anything ....

    1. Thank you will try this.
      Fingers crossed

  30. Thank god I founds this thread! I would've been stuck on this level forever! Fittest though when I get the chance is straight to the computer instead of my phone! Woo hoo! :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. level 285 is definitely an error in it? because my fish are not in the pure blocks!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. when is the new levels online due out after 350

    ReplyDelete
  33. All the Jelly cleaned, no jelly under the bottom squares, but anyway, the level wasn't won.

    2. Exactly...played on my pc all day yesterday and this morning...all jelly cleared...fishes go to the bottom, but do not clear the jelly there...Do I need to update something?!?!?

      Delete
    3. As far as I knew those things in the bottom weren't considered as "Jelly" for the game. But it looks like in this level, the game want us to clear that also.

      Delete
  34. is there any way of passing this level on the iphone as i have not got facebook and dont really want one?

    ReplyDelete
  35. My fish don't touch the bottom blocks at all. Not a chance of me passing this level. Might be time to stop playing :(

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'm so glad I read this thread. Been trying to play this level on an iPad and iPhone for DAYS! Will try on laptop tomorrow......

    ReplyDelete
  37. So..... There are 2 Jelly behind the squares at the bottom, and they get cleared, even before removing the whole thing...

    The video helped, but the level is confusing.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I have this downloaded on my iPad and not through Facebook. How do I get it on the computer and when I do m I at my same level?

    Replies
    1. What do you mean, they changed the level? I didn't get an update on my ipad. I wrote to King.com about this bug and they are still not calling it a bug even though they say you have to play it on facebook to get to the next level.

      Delete
    2. Now the 3 blocks on the bottom are different. They don't have that much "toppings" on them.

      Delete
    3. But you still need the fish to skim them, correct? And of course, they don't, do they?

      Delete
  42. I have cleared ALL the jelly with 1 tin foil left at the bottom middle , no pass. I have just watched a youtube video and the player had jelly all over the place & still passed!!!! WTF??! GRRRRRRR

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Now the level is different, it has now 2 Jelly under all the "Ice" on top, so you actually need to visual clean all the 3 block on the bottom.

      Delete
  43. Can you do this level on a pc without using Facebook? My hubby doesn't have a facebook account and when I go online, we seem to have to start from level 1.

    ReplyDelete
  44. this is pathetic. been stuck for weeks now. im playing thru facebook and still no joy. is defo a bug and so many people have complained for weeks and iv still had no update. this is driving me crazy. goin delete the crap game

    ReplyDelete
  45. This sucks! Why the fish dont go to the bottom. I clear all the jelly and the fish just eat random candies. Im going back to Angry Birds!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Please fix the app to be the same as facebook so I can pass 285. I don't have facebook and want to continue badly. the fish are just taking already cleared jelly

    ReplyDelete
  47. JUST GET ON A PC OR LAPTOP!!! that's the only way to get thru level 285 until King.com changes it. i did and got thru after 2 tries...

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'll wait until King changes it or i won't be playing Candy Crush anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I have cleared all the jellies. Looked at you tube videos to see what I am doing wrong, i did everything they did to clear including hitting the bottom three two time each and it still says I did not clear. Playing on the android it says I have three remaining jellies to clear.... I don't get it.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I have been stuck on this level for a while as well. Fishes will attack the bottom ones on web version only. But hitting the bottom three twice doesn't seem enough to pass, the jelly behind the bricks are still there. This level seems impossible to pass without buying cheats. DONE with this game. Too frustrated.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Thanks for the tips of using Facebook on a pc.. Got 39/42 on Android at least 20 times because of retarded fish glitch.

    ReplyDelete
  52. King.com App Support emailed me back and confirmed they are aware of the issue and that it should be fixed by the next update...

    1. That's amazing because King.com wouldn't even admit they had a problem to me. Hope you are right.

  53. have been on it for days..on pc and laptop....clear all jelly as advised....and still it won't clear....this game is frustrating enough without glitches....lol

    ReplyDelete
  54. Thank you so much for this tip!
    When playing on Facebook you need to hit the bottom three squares twice after you've cleared the rest of the jelly & blocks.
    Finally made it ^^
    And on android it is possible when you place a wrapped candy in the square next to the blocks, but then you have to hit them a lot until they are gone :P

    Greetings, Samantha

  55. I have Candy Crush on my iPad as an independent app. I do NOT have it linked with my Facebook account.

    Is it possible to play the game on a laptop _without_ going through Facebook?

    I tried their main website - unsuccessfully.

    Does anyone know or have any advice? Thanks in advance for your help! : )

    ReplyDelete
  56. It has to be with the fishes at the end, because, although it seems they are eating the top part, they are actually eating the jello beneath it so with to fishes atacking every cupcake, you pass the level :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. I'm glad I looked this up. The fishes on the iphone and ipad always attack candy squares even though I clear the jelly on all squares. Was thinking this level was impossible. I have to do it on the PC.
    Sort it out King!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Okay completed the level. I don't quite know how but I did it on the PC. Thanks alot save the fish until last does the trick.

    ReplyDelete
  59. So this morning there was an update for the iOS version in my app store. I did the update thinking I would finally be able to pass the level, since a previous commenter said King stated the glitch would be fixed in the next update, but I don't think it's been fixed. The fish still won't go to the bottom. Anyone else still having this problem after the update?

    1. Nope, it works for me now, finally!. You have to turn off your phone after the update for it to work.

  60. They fixed the bug and I beat it...finally. Fish have to skim bottom rocks twice. After updating turn off your phone or tablet completely and when you turn it back on the update should work.

  61. Thank God king fixed the bug! I was just about to throw me kindle out the window! 286 here we goooooo!!

  62. Incredible! This was the only place that knew how to explain what had to be done! fantastic! Excuse my poor English, I'm Brazilian and I speak very little! I'll save your site to my favorites! I was stuck in this phase for a month. After I saw just spent 4 lives (in all of them came very close, but at the last it worked!) Happy life!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I beat this level today due to these tips but, I beat it on my Android so it can be done on the phone. Save the fish til the end and I only used 2 of the fish and the level cleared...yahooo good luck all

  64. THANK YOU!! After being stuck on my ipad for over a week on this level, passed FIRST TIME on PC!

  65. i played on my cp cleared the jellies and left the 2 fish but still unsuccessful.. help

  66. Glitch is fixed! I won this level on my ipad. I can't believe I did it!! I am still in shock right now.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I passed...finally after 23 days of redundant and mundane moves..i played via fb....did a colored donut with a stripe and a stripe plus candy wrapper combo!!! Was just about to give up and delete this whole game that has kept me up for days...yeahhhh!!!

    ReplyDelete
  68. After looking at the comments I was afraid I'd be stuck here for a long time. But I have passed this level on my mobile phone (Android) after 2 tries. I have cleared all the jelly in the main area without using the fish, and only then I used the 3 fish which went to the 3 bottom squares and did what they were supposed to :)

    ReplyDelete
  69. Can this level be done using iPhone?

    ReplyDelete
  70. So I thought that this level was impossible on iPhone and so I tried for two days on my phone and then on the laptop via Facebook Candy Crush. Could not get it done on the laptop but I just passed it with the iPhone. You only have to have the fish hit the bottom jellys twice and they will break.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I completed this level on the iPad after many attempts using various "strategies." What worked, as so often with the more difficult levels, was to simply focus on making striped/wrapped candy combos and blowing the board clear as often as possible. And, it is like a slot machine in that luck is a factor moreso than skill. Thanks for the tips, everyone!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Thank you thank you thank you!!

    Been stuck for DAYS on this, always clear jelly but not bottom three.
    Second time of trying on my pc and I completed it!

  73. 4 tries, 2 stars, moving one

  74. Android does not work.

    It works on a computer

    ReplyDelete
  75. I am still struggling. I thought the bottom row did not have to be completely cleared (?). I've had just foil left at the bottom but did not pass the level that way. I usually end up with a regular square with jelly and candy in it at the bottom that I haven't been able to clear out, at least not all 3 of them! Confused about the level now.

    ReplyDelete
  76. im using iphone..already finish the top jelly but my fish never go to the bottom rock..how??somebody help me.been 2 weeks struggling..pls ..sklurpin80@yahoo.com

    ReplyDelete
  77. ♥ Just realized that there are no jellies around the fishes. No need to waste your moves on them. Took me many tries and eventually got it with combos. Didn't even have to mix a striped with fish as long as you clear the jellies before releasing the fishes.

    ReplyDelete
  78. At last I managed this level, only after I updated the ipad, once I had updated the fish attacked the 3 lower ones that are causing problems .
    Hope this helps, so to conclude, I visited the App Store and there were updates for candy crush, updated and sailed through the level.

  81. Struggling big time with this one. Most boards almost impossible to get wrapped & striped or spotted & striped to help clear it. Hoping and waiting for one of those really lucky ones to happen otherwise think I will spend more time in the garden :)

    ReplyDelete
  82. After hundreds of attempts, I actually detest this level now. I managed to get 3 spotted and striped matches in one game & still no good. Almost at the stage where I want to quit this game!! :(

    ReplyDelete
  83. 1st life., was left with one!! 2nd life nowhere near it., 3rd life, last fish took out the last two on bottom.
    It helped crossing a bomb with stripe midway....cleared most of board...not hard level and no glitches at all!!

    ReplyDelete
  84. Wow, check all the comments after I did this on my first try taking all the moves and luck with the last fish being where I needed it.

  85. awesome free cheats http://gamehackerz.com

  86. I was trying to beat this level for 3 days, and was left with the bottom three jellies, every time. After reading the tips here, I just passed it on my first try. Phew! Yaaaay! lol This board sucked!

    ReplyDelete
  87. I tried and tried with this level, thinking that when I got to the metallic candy on the bottom, the jelly was gone but nope! Finally read this blog and followed the advice of saving the fish to the end.. and voila! It worked! Cleared the 3 bottom blocks completely to finish this level. THIS is one tip that really worked!

    ReplyDelete
  88. Even when i clear all the jellies my fish still don't go near the stone blocks. I canny see why

    ReplyDelete
  89. I've followed your advice and the fish only stay on the gameboard. I only play on my cell.Why won't your tips work on my board? Really frustrating! Thanks for any help.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Advice at the top of thread just worked perfectly for me. Saved the top fish and bingo level completed after I set them loose, they ate up what was under the blocks at the bottom

    ReplyDelete
  91. Didn't work for me. Even if I save the fish, they don't get to the bottom. Sometimes I can't even release them! I'm ready for a couple of easy levels! Getting too hard to be fun lately.

    ReplyDelete
  92. c/candycrush here.
    Got this in one, playing on a computer.
    It did not do the happy dance though till every square was cleared even though the cream squares don't have any jelly under them. I may have fluked it by chance. I cleared what I could but was left with 2 unopened fish and 3 white tin squares down the bottom. I was able to release the fish and they did the work for me. So try to hold onto the fish till last. Good luck.

  93. Great tips completed third attempt.

    ReplyDelete
  94. I was stuck on this level, couldn't pass it so didn't bother to play for alteast 6 months! The tip on here was great!! I turn on my PC and play on there , second attemp and I finally passed with flying colours, I beat all my friends scores, top player lol. Thxs guys ;). So get on ur PC boys n girls !!! Happy new year to u all ;)

    ReplyDelete
  95. HELP! I don't know if it's a glitch but I've tried several times to save my fish for the end and they won't eat the jelly from under the rocks!! They just eat random pieces...how do I pass this level??

    ReplyDelete
  96. so are the jellies under the 3 rocks?

    ReplyDelete
  97. i was lucky as at every attempt i always released one fish before the jellies were cleared! then i got lucky with 2 fish left i had two chocolate bombs together and no move jellies except for the 3 on the bottom and by combining the bombs it released 2 fish and got rid of the last jellies!

    ReplyDelete
  98. There has been mentioned of some have an updated version--the one I have whatever it is, is impossible. I have been at it a wk and a half at least 6-7 hrs a day and can't break the 3 on the bottom. I try to save the fish but somehow the cascades let them loose and they don;t hit the bottom 3. I am pretty good at making stripe & wrap candies but on the level you get very few opportunities and they are never near the bottom 3 blocks. ????? HELP or maybe I need to find another game.

    ReplyDelete
  99. This level is really messed up. You have to hit the 3 cream blocks at the bottom 3 times. The fish DO NOT eat the jelly from under the cream. Something needs to be done with this level. It stinks.
