Tap Tap Fish AbyssRium Event Guide: Spring Event

Tap Tap Fish Event Guide

This guide will have all information on all future (and eventually, all past) Events in Tap Tap Fish AbyssRium.

The March Circus event is live! These always have a slow rollout, so it may take up to a week to get the update. Just leave Auto Updates on and wait to ensure you get it when it’s ready.

Updated 2019-03-31: Spring Event Fish added

General Event Tips

  • All events have a slow rollout. There will a period of up to a week between it “releasing” and you actually getting it, there’s nothing you can do, do not delete the game and redownload it, it doesn’t work.
  • You cannot complete ingame events without a guide. The fish unlocks are simply too byzantine.
  • Ingame event currency is referred to older players as “candies” sometimes regardless of what the icon is, so keep that in mind.
  • Immediately buy the “Dye” for each event to unlock the Hermit Crab and cast the Crab’s skill as often as possible, the crab is essential to all events now.
  • Ignore all ingame text and hints. It is poorly translated and often simply wrong. Information in these guides will be the correct information, so just do what this guide says and totally ignore the ingame info. A huge amount of questions I get are people reading the ingame text and being confused about stuff that’s already in the guide.
  • Never buy fish with gems, it’s insanely overpriced. A week’s worth of gems will buy the same fish watching 1 ad would earn.

Spring Event 2019

Note with this update, there’s 10 more Fusion Fish in the main tank (some required for the event!). The Christmas, Freshwater, and Halloween Tanks all had their (terrible) level caps removed as well!

These events have expired and can’t be completed. All events repeat, but the way they repeat may be entirely different (for example, a Spring event could become a Flower event, but the new Flower event will have some method of getting most/all Spring event fish).

March Circus Event 2019

This event comes to the Abyss Tank along with 10 new Fusion Fish. It’s on a slow rollout like all events, so it may take up to a week to arrive on your device. Just wait. It also comes with 10 new fusion fish, see the main guide for how to unlock those.

Valentine’s Day Event 2019

The Valentine’s Day 2019 Event is rolling out slowly (every single event in AbyssRium does this, don’t complain, I know it sucks, tell the devs not me). All Hidden Fish unlocks and the full quest info are already known!

If my guides help remember you can support me on Patreon, YouTube, or chat about games in my Discord Server!

Update: Sorry for the downtime on 2019-02-06! It’s all fixed and I upgraded my server (and it costs more now). It’s a good time to support me on Patreon or PayPal if my guides have helped you out! 

You can see my archived stream of the event here:

Event Stats

Start date: 2019-01-29
End Date: 2019-02-28 (estimated)

Costs: (data)

Total Cost: 625,500 roses!!!!
Fusion Materials: 3050 Seaweed, 640 clams, 275 Urchins
Time: over 30 days worth of max level crab casts or 626 ad watches, plus 82 hours of manual Urchin collection

Making this tie for one of the most expensive ever, and everyone starts from scratch

How It Works

Estimated Difficulty: Extremely high. Over 600,000 candy required.

Apparently we were told candy would carry over to the next event. I personally do not trust this at all given the multiple times they’ve gone back or attempted to go back on that.

  • Slow rollout starting 2019-01-29, slow rollouts mean it can take up to a week to get it
  • It’s a return to the old “crab” style events; it’s in the Saltwater tank, the Hermit Crab is back and can be cast 10 times per day for free
    • Theme, Dye, and Costume for coralite will be included like old times!
  • 17 new fish + 1 IAP. 1 “Quest” fish unlocked by completing a vague quest, just like Egypt/Pirate/2nd Anniversary events. If you missed those you can check out those guides for how they worked.
    • 2017 fish are back too.
    • 2018 fish/coral are NOT back, except Pygmy Whales
  • New attendance mission with 5 new rewards for daily check ins up to 20 days
Event Roadmap

First, note all your candies are gone (Halloween stole them) so you’re starting from 0. You need 200 candies to buy the Banquet Hall Dye to unlock the crab, which should be your first step. Watching 2 ads is enough, though you should keep tapping candy for the 50 candy Quest.

With 200 roses collected, close the main menu and tap the painter’s palette, then the Dye tab to get the Banquet Hall Dye and Crab. Tap the Event tab again to get the crab, it’s free real estate.

With the Dye  and Crab purchased, you should be casting it as often as possible, up to 10 times per day (you can recharge it halfway for 100 pearls, a total rip-off so don’t).

The crab is the fastest and easiest way to get candy, especially without a macro (which requires Nox Player and a PC or Mac). Keep the dye equipped, because otherwise you can’t use the crab. Don’t bother tapping roses unless you’re charging the crab, it’s seriously a drop in the ocean compared to ads and the crab. Only if you’re using a macro should you try otherwise.

To make tapping candy easier, store all fish but 5 or more Jellyfish or Clownfish. They stay in a small area and are easy to tap.

Level up the crab the instant you can each time, it’s hard to overstate how critical it is to completing this style of event.

Complete each step of the Quest as soon as you can, as a couple steps require you to perform tasks after unlocking the step.

With the help of the ads you should be able to get the Hermit Crab to level 6-8 within the first 24 hours, after which you can focus more on collecting the fish. Just be sure to finish upgrading the crab once you have the 30 fish required for the final levels.

    • 2 Wedding Town Whales
Valentine’s 2017 Fish

Separate Tank Events

These events can be accessed year-round, but you must buy a “season pass” via ads or pearls to access them out-of-season. The fish can still be placed in the Saltwater tank as well (barring some bugs that occur).

How Separate Tank Events Work

As many suspected, the Freshwater separate coralite situation was used as an excuse to make Candy worthless. The new event is in a totally new style similar to the Freshwater coralite. I’ll explain the tabs and their functions here.

Your candy from prior events carries over, but is basically totally worthless. There is no per-tap vitality so don’t waste your time tapping beyond collecting candy. The basic loop is collect candy, use candy to upgrade the Witch’s Pot to get more Vitality, use Vitality to buy event fish, event fish increase the candy you get allowing you to ultimately get more Vitality and so on.


Complete the tasks to unlock “coral”, cosmetic vitality producing items (that do not produce enough vitality to be worth it, but they unlock fish so get them anyway). The Quest requirements are in a section below.


Candy is now only used to upgrade the Hermit Crab, which now functions like the Coralite. Upgrading the crab with candy will produce more “Halloween Vitality” which is spent on Halloween fish.

Collect 50 candy from bubbles to make the hermit crab dance, like before and it still earns candies in return; a lot more now, so prior stocked up candy is basically crap. It now sleeps for an hour after dancing, and can be reset by watching an ad.

There are additions to the crab that can be unlocked via the Quest and also upgraded in the same tab as the Crab. They’re basically Coral.


All fish are in the same tab, and only in the Halloween Coralite. They cost Halloween Vitality instead of Candy, and prior event fish are mixed into the same huge list (and prior purchased old event fish do not count!). See below sections for prior event hidden fish unlocks.

Fish are separated by tank meaning your old Halloween fish cannot be put in the Halloween Tank, and new fish bought in the Halloween Tank cannot be put in your saltwater or freshwater tanks.

Fish prices rise exponentially with each purchase, so don’t buy too many repeats that are unnecessary, focus on unlocking all fish first, then decide what you want duplicates of.


This is where you upgrade Trick or Treat (the Crab dance skill), and also where two extremely overpriced consumable boosters are. Don’t bother buying the ones with pearls.

Just upgrade Trick or Treat to level 10 as soon as possible, it will be required to complete the event, and you’ll get the gems back from achievements/quests in the event anyway.

Idle Vitality Is King

After 2 years of idle vitality not mattering at all, it’s actually best to let the full 3 hours of idle vitality accumulate in this tank. Unlike past tanks, it actually matters a lot, and Candy drops from tapping bubbles is increased drastically for the first ~20 seconds after claiming the idle vitality.

You can get several Coral levels from tapping the boosted bubbles so check every 3 hours and don’t play too much “actively” because idle is so much more effective.

Christmas Tank

Christmas  Event 2018 Stats

Start Date: 2018-12-13
End Date: 2019-01-13*
*End dates are roughly estimated; events last around a month, but we’ve never told in advance when the end is because AbyssRium’s communication is terrible. It’s also unclear if the new event style even ends or not.

New Fish: 18
Total Fish: 58
IAP Fish: 1 new IAP fish
Total cost: No longer a relevant metric as candy does not carry over

Christmas Event 2018 Hidden Fish

All 2018 fish start Hidden in this event. If you’re so new you don’t know what that means, start with the guide for the main game to learn how it works and unlock fish. The 2016 and 2017 fish have unlock conditions, but are not hidden.

Note that some lock conditions are listed on the lock icon rather than with the other lock conditions, you need to meet all conditions and no popup will tell you when you unlock them since they are not hidden. Most fish now have three unlock conditions this time and will not unlock before all three are met.

Christmas 2018 Event Fish

2018 fish are actually hidden, unlike the others.

Please note you will not progress at all if you avoid making fish. It doesn’t tell you, but creating fish drastically increases candy earnings. Always make a fish the moment you can.


  • Cookie Angelfish
    • Tap 5 candy from snowflake angel
    • Don’t do anything for 1 hour
      • Fun and Engaging Gameplay
  • Concierge Seahorse
    • Level 4500 Happy House on the Hill
    • Share Christmas Plaza card of Sock Seahorse 
  • Rudolph Octopus
    • Tap candy from Octopus 100 times
      • For unlocks like this, anything with Octopus in the name inside the Christmas tank counts
        • Never count “do X 100+ times” unlocks yourself, just do the other requirements first until it unlocks. You will make mistakes and think something is broken, but all that’s happened is you or the game didn’t count right. Just do it until it unlocks, 99% of the time when people ask they just haven’t done it enough.
    • Take 5 photos of Cookie Express while White Christmas is active
      • This is the cookie train behind the tree, it only spawns after the House on the Hill is upgraded to a certain point
    • Take 5 photos of Santa Express while Santa Express magic is active
      • This is the gift box train
  • Santa Squid
    • Share 1 Nutcracker Dreams Christmas card with Rudolph Octopus
    • Take 5 photos of front left side house with White Christmas on
      • For unlocks like this there’s little houses in the tank, pan around the camera and tap on them. Once it focuses on the house, that’s when you can take the picture. You need 5 photos of all of them with the skills active so just take them all at once.
    • Take 1 photo of Train Platform with white Christmas on
      • The platform with the clock just by the parked train
  • Pajamas Chick
    • Level 5500 Snowman’s Nest
    • Share Jolly Penguin card with Concierge Seahorse
    • Touch bubbles from any fish 1500 times
  • Pajamas Otter
    • Use Miracle of Christmas 100 times
      • If you can’t seem to get the otter and think you satisfied the requirements, there is a 99.99% chance you just haven’t cast this enough. 100 is a TON of casts.
    • Level 5000 Candle Lighthouse 
    • Take 5 photos of Santa Squid with Santa Express active
  • Rudolph Dugong
    • Collect 200 candy from dolphins

      • That’s 75 days or $100 worth of pearls! Merry Christmas!
        • Really though, don’t spend pearls just to get this; when the event is “over” you can enter the Christmas Tank for watching an ad for 30 minutes of access per day. That’s plenty of time to open the 2 gifts, so you basically have infinite time to get this if it’s like the Halloween tank, which all signs show it is.
  • Santa Lobster
    • Open Christmas Gift 12 Times
  • Elf Frog
    • Open Christmas Gift 24 Times
  • Rudolph Sea Horse & Cookie

    • $10 IAP
  • Snowflake Fairy
    • $10 IAP

Christmas 2018 Quests

These quests give rewards (including Candy, Vitality, and Gems) and unlock the next “coral” in the game. They’re required for fish unlocks and help you progress in the event, so keep an eye on them.

Requirements that must be completed after unlocking them will be marked specifically. “Own” means you can complete a requirement before unlocking, buy new means you must create more even if you already have fish.

After completing a quest, it will show you a little cutscene of a fish: you have not unlocked this fish it’s just a needlessly confusing cutscene.

Halloween Event Tank

Halloween Event (2018) Event Stats

Start Date: 2018-10-24
End Date: 2018-11-24*
*End dates are roughly estimated; events last around a month, but we’ve never told in advance when the end is because AbyssRium’s communication is terrible. It’s also unclear if the new event style even ends or not.

New Fish: 11
Total Fish: 58
IAP Fish: 4 new IAP fish, one in each tank (sheesh). Only one affects Halloween
Total cost: All but impossible to determine in the new format before actually reaching it

Halloween 2018 Hidden Fish

Note that some lock conditions are listed on the lock icon rather than with the other lock conditions, you need to meet all conditions and no popup will tell you when you unlock them since they are not hidden. Most fish have three unlock conditions this time and will not unlock before all three are met.

Beware buying duplicates the maximum vitality per second appears to have a hard cap, some players report possibly being locked out of getting the Kraken due to this. Buy only fish needed for unlocks if possible, until you get the last fish. Yes, it sucks, yes, tell the devs you’re not happen about that aspect on Facebook.

Regarding Tombstone unlocks, just take 5 pictures of all 4 Tombstones and it should count, then just ignore the tombstone unlocks unless you’re sure it’s what you’re missing.

New Player Spreadsheet

This event is kind of a trainwreck for new players, who have it several times harder than other players, and can possibly lock themselves out of the kraken by buying too many of the wrong fish.

Use this spreadsheet by u/iloveregex to be sure you don’t mess up if you want to be careful about how many of each to buy!

    • Take a picture of the #1 Tombstone

      • You will not get a pop up confirming it worked, since this is NOT a hidden fish.

The rest of the 2017 and 2016 Halloween Fish are listed ingame and not hidden, I just listed this because everyone is tripped up by the 33 event fish unlock. Most fish have a requirement under the lock icon too

Old Event Fish (2016-2017)

The Fall 2017, Halloween 2016, and Halloween 2017 fish are included, but with totally new unlocks.

Any fish you got from a prior event or in the luck shell will automatically be unlocked, the others have to be unlocked in the Halloween tank with new conditions. Let me know the new conditions if you find them because I cannot test or check them.

This is a really dumb, unnecessary over complication imo.

Halloween 2018 Quests

These quests give rewards (including Candy, Vitality, and Gems) and unlock the next “coral” in the game. They’re required for fish unlocks and help you progress in the event, so keep an eye on them.
