AbyssRium Theme Update

Abyssrium updated today, and while I updated my guide to have all this info, I thought I might post a more concise article since it’s a lot of info to skim. All updates will always go to the main guide, but if there’s a significant update I might also post little one off articles like this.

AbyssRium’s New Themes

Themes for Coralite, Coral and background have been added; click the new Palette icon between Photo and Menu (Cardboard VR for Android is now under the Camera menu).

It’s mostly a way for them to give you more reason to spend gems, but a few items in every category are free, and all the Halloween visual effects were converted into themes for you to use.

All theme options have previews so you can see what it looks like before buying. If it doesn’t cost gems, it’s actually free once you’ve met the condition.

Costume

Outfits for the Coralite.

  • Lonely Coralite
    • Default
  • Amigo Friend
    • Level 1000 Coralite
    • Sombrero, Sarape, and Maracas
    • Shakes the maracas when tapping

    • 500 Gems
    • Do what you want ’cause a pirate is free

        • Are
          • A
            • Pirate
  • Bunny Stone
    • 1000 Gems
    • Bunny girl…for…reasons…?

Dye

Dye affects the visuals of your Coral.

  • Ordinary Coral
    • Default
  • Halloween Potion
    • Unlock by playing during the halloween event, I assume
    • Pumpkins, gravestones and candles
  • Autumn Dye
    • Unlock: Level 100 of Star Horn Coral
    • A mostly orange and very fall-themed set of coral
  • Blue Dye
    • 300 Gems
    • Corals are all different shades of blue
  • White Due
    • 500 Gems
    • All white coral
  • Red Dye
    • 1000 Gems
    • Red and White corals fitting for Valentine’s I guess

Theme

Theme effects the water, lighting, and Song of the Moon.

  • Abyssrium
    • Default
  • Halloween Night
    • Presumably unlocked by having played during the Halloween event
    • Song of the Moon has a nice orange moon with spooky graveyard shadows over it
    • Cosmetic only, does NOT enable candy or anything
  • Midnight Ocean
    • Total of 100 Fish (unsure if Halloween event fish count)
    • A lovely darker blue with a light glow around the coral, a more subtle lightshaft effect
    • Song of the Moon is a nice crescent moon now
  • Jade Sky
    • 300 Gems
    • Green ocean
    • For some reason this theme and following ones don’t recolor your corals just background
    • Song of the Moon is blue with a crescent moon
  • Smoothie Ocean
    • 500 Gems
    • Same visual effect as the 2x vitality spell
    • Song of the Moon is blue with a half moon
  • Lovely Light
    • 1000 Gems
    • A very pink ocean
    • Song of the Moon is still blue with an odd 3/4ths moon

Expand

“Coming Soon”, presumably this is a new way to unlock more fish and/or a larger aquarium somehow.

Total Speculation

The space for “Event” between Shop and Close in the menu was left which looks rather awkward. I can only assume there will fairly soon be a “Christmas” or otherwise some holiday event soon that probably also takes advantage of the new Theme options. I have no confirmation of that or anything, it just seems pretty likely.

  • Ariougi

    can the theme be removed?

    • Yeah, just select the “default” theme at the top of the theme menu for each item to “remove” any applied customization options

  • Autumn Dye is for getting the Star Horn Coral to Level 100 and Midnight Ocean is for having 100 total fish. Can’t provide an image for Autumn Dye since I got it before I thought to take screenshots, but here’s one for Midnight Ocean. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c15303634ff110550f8f247667c5941fe3e87cea27bb65772f0ffdacfcd15970.png

    • Oops, already got that corrected on the guide, thanks for the heads up though!

      • Regarding whether Halloween fish count or not, I’d assume it works like every other counter where only year-round fish count. I know that the Total Fish achievements in Google Play work that way as well, so I assume that’s just the default status for any total fish counters.

        • Yeah, I’m 99% sure too, just wanted to leave a disclaimer juuuust in case
