Puzzle 8 Aquarium: To clarify, if a shape has a different legs that are only connected higher up, both legs have to be filled the same height. For example a shape consisting of R1C123,R2C13 and R3C13. If I fill R3C1 from the top, R3C3 also automatically fills.
I’ve seen similar puzzles on Puzzle Picnic, but they are not the same as I understand it. Look at this puzzle (http://puzzlepicnic.com/puzzle?594) for example, as I read it, this would not be a valid puzzle in your rule set.

Your assumption is correct. The water level must be the same (reach the same row) in all parts of the same shape.

You are right. It will be fixed in the new version of the booklet.

1) Shakashaka
Is to solve with writing only diagonal lines, instead of shading?

I think it is acceptable as far as you clearly outline all the rectangles and there are no additional diagonal lines written in the grid to be confused with the solution.
