[NEEDS INPUT] [CHEAT] Fish from buydebug mode can’t be selected

[ Edited ]
★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.55.108.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Get Famous, Seasons, Cats and Dogs, City Living, Get Together, Get To Work, Realm of Magic, Strangerville, Parenthood, Vampires, and Spooky Stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? 1. Launch Sims 4; 2. Choose a household; 3. Turn on testingcheats and bb.showhiddenobjects; 4. Go into build/buy mode; 5. Search for a fish (in my case, Angelfish); 6. Select fish and place in home or on Sims lot; 7. Go back to play mode and attempt to move and/or drag fish to sim’s personal inventory.
What happens when the bug occurs? I attempt to find a fish (Angelfish as an ingredient) in build/buy mode and place it in household, go back to play mode and cannot move fish to place it in my sim’s inventory.
What do you expect to see? I expect to be able to move the fish in play mode to be able to place it in my sim’s inventory.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

I’m not sure why I cannot move the fish in play mode to my sim’s inventory. I found some spotted heart frogs and they were able to be moved and placed in my sim’s inventory during my last game. I don’t think it’s related to all hidden objects, just some.

 

Sorry, I don't have a photo.

definitely not all collectibles in bb.showhiddenobjects. just fish.

Also, it seems like some fish from build/buy mode cannot be placed in fish bowls, aquariums or ponds, either.

Yeah, fish have always been difficult to acquire. Since the bb fish are apparently for looks only and if you don't really have a lot of time to go fishing, I suggest you remember the Gallery is your friend, if your sim can (ouch!) spare the money.

How can you look for collectibles in the gallery? I thought all it provided was households, lots, and rooms.

Ok so I figured it out.
In buy mode, open gallery, search "angel fish", someone by the name "JANMARBROWN" has an angel fish in a little blue square. place that on the lot, and in live mode you can then move the fish into your inventory. 

I tried for 4 hours to catch this silly fish.
