I have forgotten my 6 digit pin code again! My fish are always trying to tell me something but I can’t figure out was they are trying to tell me. Please help me find my pin code!

Your PIN clearly is

123456

Explanation:

You're happily mixing freshwater fish, saltwater fish, building equipment, fruit and even mammals (both aquatic and non-aquatic) in the same aquarium, so you're probably - with all due respect - a person of limited wits.

It is well known that as such you're highly likely to choose a PIN of a certain style, and the example given in the linked video can trivially be extended to six digits, ending up 123456. (Amazing! That's the same PIN I have on my Stack Exchange account!)

    $\begingroup$ You make some good points, though I think I'd lean more towards "mad scientist" than "idiot" for some of these. I think that parrot (Norwegian Blue?) must have really been pining for the fjords though. And just FYI @ImmortalBlue, it's 'Skroob' (an anagram of Brooks). $\endgroup$
