    No, you are not wrong at all, BUT. The "problem" with a water habitat is its low total capacity compared to Earth, Cold, or Metal. So your water habitat needs emptying of gold every 18 or so minutes with Pans. That's fine when you are playing the game, but rubbish when you are sleeping, eating, working, or at school! You are not earning any more gold if a habitat is maxed out / full of gold. With the metal mine you only need to come back to the game every 8 hours or so to empty it and be always earning gold. Thats the balance you have to strike if trying to maximise gold production!

    Thank you. I should have read the entire part about the Panlongs. I have sold most all my water habitats & replaced them with earth & am getting the full 411 cpm x 3. Sorry, I was confused & glad I re-read it :)

    Another silly question... Which would be best as a second epic gold mine island:

    Olympus
    Bloom
    Treasure

    ???

    Thanks :)

    Can any mines be made regarding the Large Sun/Moon habitats? Blue Moon, Solstice, Lunar Eclipse, and Solar Eclipse all make 948 cpm habitats with about 20 hr sweep time, which in essence puts the metal mine to shame

    Also Panlong with 2 boosts at Lv 10 makes 268 cpm so 804 cpm per habitat, which is 627,120 coins/hr with 13 mines

    Wouldn't it be easier to just make Magnetic dragons and sell them? It doesn't make as much per hour, but the money generated doesn't require you to sweep the islands every hour or so either. You can make 1.1 million DC every 8 hours, or every 4 hours if you're chain breeding them, and they're practically guaranteed to breed the same ones every time. Also, there's no initial outlay of habitats or boosts. Plus you don't have to worry about not getting your 2 Panlongs (intial breeding pair), if you're going to use them to create the mines, before February's deadline.

    Making and selling magnetic dragons is a great way to earn cash, and you should absolutely do it too. But it does tie up your breeding programme somewhat, so it depends on what your are trying to do in the game. Both tactics work hand in hand, not "either / or" ;)

    Sure if you're willing to spend 650 million in DC just to get started, wait 78 days (one breeding site), and not see any return on your investment for a month. Plus the only way you'll see that ROI in a month is to sweep the habitats 24/7 for 28 days, so realistically you probably won't see any ROI with that set up for about 6 months, so how is that a good plan again?
