Anniversary Event Stats

Start time: July 27th
Estimated end date: September 4th

Total cost: 270,000 candies! AUGH

Note: If you’ve come here from a notification about the event, know that the notifications are basically complete garbage and just mean to remind you to do the event. There is no new fish, the event is the same as it was before, the fish list below is still complete.

Since this event is extra incredibly expensive, two tips: First, be sure you’re using the best method to earn cakes! Tapping single cakes is generally a waste of time. Second, never buy event fish with gems! It’s an insane waste of gems, which would get you more cake anyway if you spend them on Song of the Moon or even Spirit of Life (the latter isn’t recommended, but is still absurdly better than buying event fish with them).

Hidden Anniversary Event Fish

  • Balloon Blue Tang
    • Watch the ad to get event currency 15 times
    • 500 Cake
  •  Afro Mirror Ball Fish
    • 200 taps in the top right corner during the Song of the Moon
      • People report issues with this, I’m pretty sure they’re either not tapping enough, using Midas Tap (tap manually instead), or not tapping far enough into the upper right corner (try closing the main menu)
      • This should be easy to get within a single SotM if you tap at a solid pace.
    • 1,200 Cake
  • Dress Dumbo Octopus
    • Equip all event theme items (yes 2018 theme items work for this)
      • Then, buy a Candle Seahorse (if you already made one, equip the hat and buy another)
    • 2,400 Cake
  • Tuxedo Dolphin
    • Equip all event theme items (yes 2018 theme items work for this)
    • Then, share 3 Dress Dumbo Octopus pictures
    • 3,600 Cake

Baby Fish (Fusions)

  • 1-year-old Sunfish
    • Create 5 Party Sunfish
    • Cost:
      • 1 Sunfish

    • Note these are still in the Event tab (at the bottom) with the other event fish. They’re hidden until you own 5 of the parent fish
  • 1-year-old Killer Whale
    • Create 5 Balloon Whale Sharks
    • Cost:
      • 1 Balloon Whale Shark
