(Fantastic Four I#521 (fb) - BTS) - The Aquion may have possessed cloaking technology shielding shielding their planet from Galactus' detection, possibly granted to them by Zius and the Survivors.

(Fantastic Four I#521) - Empowered as the herald of Galactus, the Human Torch (Johnny Storm) sought allies to help rebel against Galactus. He tried to recruit the Aquion, who made it clear they wouldn't be very useful by pointing out the simple fact, "We're fish." The Torch left them in peace.
