Anniversary Event Tank Gameplay

Note that tapping for vitality doesn’t work and in fact, taps in the event tanks don’t even count toward the tap daily! To complete the daily, tap in the Saltwater tank.
General Event Info
Events slowly rollout from the app stores (every time, yes it sucks), so don’t panic if you don’t get it. APKs have apparently been disabled so there is no way to get events early. This is a “tank” event like the Halloween 2018 one, so candy/vitality is not shared with your Saltwater tank or any other. It’s a self-contained event that lasts permanently, though you have to watch an add or pay pearls to visit the tank after the event period is up. See here for how to use Nox Player to automatically collect event currency on a PC/Mac so you don’t have to destroy your fingers.


Magic is basically expensive versions of the regular skills from the Saltwater tank. You get a free cast per day plus you can activate them at random from Gifts, so try to use the free casts to get unlocks rather than burning all your gems.
Great Granted Greeting
Basically Trick or Treat from Halloween, increases candy from the crab permanently. Level it up as early as possible; though expensive, it’s required to unlock several hidden fish. Most require level 15 or lower, one requires level 20. You’ll recuperate some (not all) gems during the quests.
Splendid Aurora
Triples vitality and candy production amount for 12 hours only. Once per day free* trial with ad, can get via Gift Boxes for free* too. Required for several unlocks.
Pleasurable Ship Noblesse
Reduces vitality production wait time for 12 hours only. Once per day free* trial with ad, can get via Gift Boxes for free* too. Required for several unlocks.
Extension Ship Noblesse
Decreases vitality production time permanently. Not required for any unlocks.

Anniversary Event Tank Hidden Fish

Gift Box Fish

Like the Christmas tank, you can open gift boxes and unlock fish. Click Get Gift in the crab tab to watch an ad; you can watch 2 ads per day, and pay 30 pearls per box after. Remember the tank never technically ends, so you don’t necessarily have to use pearls no matter how ‘behind’ you are. Gift Boxes reward these items at random when you’re not getting a fish:
  • Vitality
  • Candy
  • 30/60 minutes of Magic Skills
    • Uncommon
  • 100 gems
    • Rare
Fish Rewards

2017 Anniversary Fish

If you already own these fish from before this event, they won’t be unlocked in this tank and you’ll start off with 0 each. Most of the 2017 fish are unlocked early, and aren’t hidden. You’ll get about half of these before you start needing to have hidden or gift box fish to progress. But honestly, the progression is a mess. Saltwater unlocks: If a fish requires placing X fish in Saltwater, you can’t complete it until you’ve created at least one of that fish in the Anniversary Tank. This only matters if you have a stockpile of fish from before this event.

53 thoughts on “Tap Tap Fish – AbyssRium Anniversary Party Tank All Hidden Fish Guide”

  1. Thank you so much for making this site, I have been trying to figure parts of this game since January, but with your help, you have made this a much more pleasant experience.

  2. Oops, that was definitely my mistake… Created one or two and it already increased exponentially. Thank you so much for your help (^人^) also sorry, I’m trying to reply to the chain of messages but apparently I didn’t get it right

    1. Ah, yeah making fish is the biggest part–it’s tempting to “save up” for the next unlocked fish but it slows you down SO bad and eventually you have to make like 10+ of everything anyway, so you should always make a fish the instant you can. IT’s confusing, because Freshwater and Pole aren’t like that at all.

      And the reply thing is my bad, gotta fix my wordpress theme to follow the new method, but my test site is having some issues

  3. Levels on the Seahorse Theater, I meant. Thank you very much! Will more fish benefit my invitation production? That’s definitely something I could expand on but I wasn’t sure if that helped since it doesn’t say anything about production increase when you make them (the way the saltwater tank does).

  4. Any at all tips for reaching level 3000 Seahorse Theater? Something I should focus on leveling first for quicker production maybe? I’m working on upgrading Great Granted Greeting as much as I can. I can’t think of anything else to do but I’m managing maybe 10 levels a day tops at this point so I figured I would ask. Thank you so much, this is a great guide!

    1. Same thing as always, constantly cast hermit crab, upgrade hermit crab as much as you can (ultimately it’s required), upgrade central stair as much as possible (all other buildings are worthless except for unlocks), buy as many fish as possible, do your quests.

      What do you mean 10 levels a day? If you mean 10 hermit crab skill levels, that’s crazy fast as it maxes at 30 and they’re extremely expensive. If you mean building levels, you’re definitely doing something wrong.

  5. I’m having difficulty getting the dress dumbo right now to get central stair & the cake cuttlefish, how can I fix this issue?

    1. Which part is giving you trouble? There’s two requirements both clearly writteno ut…just try them again and see if it works. The saltwater tank thing is very finicky and often takes two tries to work right

  6. I gotten all the baby fish now, but I can’t see the Baby Corgi from the 2nd Anniversary. I don’t know if I’m doing it wrong or they didn’t add it to the 2019 Anniversary event.

  7. Sooo as a few others here I bought the event back b/c I haven’t been connected to the internet in a while as I was working for Shark consedvatcon in South Africa the past month…

    My question is though: Is it just me or is “100 times Great Granted Greetings”/ 120 or even 150 times a f@king lot or is there any trick to reach these numbers any faster? I’m through the entire event by now but through the Great Granted Greetings locked fish (Basically all of the hidden ones + the Dragon) I tried watching the ad every 7 minutes to reset it for a while but that didn’t help me out too well. Anyone got any other methods to pump these numbers quickly?

    Ps: Is there any way to see how far you are once you’re beyond the 20 to get the Chef Giant Isopod?

    Pps: Thanks again Mr. Tap Tap for your amazing Guide (I’m pretty sure I commented somewhere someday on your guide before) – much appreciated!!

    1. Nope, the unlocks are bad on purpose, most unlocks like that are just meant to slow the game down or force you to watch ads, there’s never a way around any unlock.

  8. Hiyah! So I bought back the Anniversary Event for 300 pearls for 30 day about 5 days ago. Do have any idea if this event will still be available after the 30 days? I totally missed this event when it got out.

    1. You can just keep buying season passes or watching ads for access infinitely, only real limitation is your pearls and the ad only works once per day.

      1. Thank you for responding, Great Sir! I can now somehow rest easy.

        Your guide is very, very helpful, by the way. Again, thank you!

          1. Achievements help massively early on, otherwise, not much to do but the few obvious gem sources. Not really any secrets

  9. I can’t get the 1 year old sperm whale… I’m following the instructions and I have everything but I’m not getting the baby whale..

    1. Omg I’m so dumb. I kept thinking I needed 10 1 year old sun fish but it was the PARTY SUN FISH. I’m sorry! Thank you though for helping everyone with the hidden fish.

    1. nvm i guess ? i checked my quest and it was changed to 15 and i had somehow also completed the whole quest

  10. I can’t get the bandmaster frog?! Taken photos of EVERYTHING with the skill active. Help?!

    1. you have to take pictures of the Lantern looking things in the background AND the ones you cant see till your in camera mode in the front it took me a few tried to realize those are the “beacons “

  11. I can’t get the dragon and have completed all the quests. Is there something else you have to do to get it?

  12. I feel silly asking this but Is it cheaper to buy the x10 upgrades or the single upgrades? It looks like the x10 might be the best option but I’m terrible at math…. lol

    1. They screwed up the math, the 10x upgrades are drastically superior to the 1x ones. They cost like 10% more and are 10x as effective for some reason. I thought I mentioned it in the guide but I guess I forgot, I’ll add it in

      1. They’ve changed it now. They “fixed it” with the new update, but now its infinitely harder.

  13. Is there any way of getting/buying more of the fish that come as a reward from opening the boxes??

  14. For 15 event fish in the Appetizer challenge — you’re looking to unlock the Chef Isopod AND also grab the Aosai Puffer 🙂 Otherwise, not enough fish.

  15. I took pictures of the Central Stair, posted 3 times on facebook, but it still won’t accept any of it, so I can’t get Dress Dumbo Octopus. Yes, I added the required fish in the saltwater tank.

    1. You have to buy at least one duke seahorse in the anniversary tank for it to work. Otherwise keep trying, game is buggy and “do it again” is usually what it takes

      1. I have tried this 5 times and it still hasn’t worked… and I can’t get any more fish without this dumbo octopus dress

        1. You’re probably just doing some part of it wrong. Buy a new Duke seahorse, go to the abyss tank and put it out, tap the actual stairs when you take the photo (just being in the shot never works)

  16. FYI – you only need to create a single “new” version for the fish that need to be put into the saltwater. Once you create one – you can put 5 old ones in the saltwater and it counts it.

      1. Anyone know how to unlock Poseidon yet? I’ve unlocked all fish and did Great Granted Greeting 200 times and still nothing.

          1. I’m glad I’m not the only nly with that problem. HELP PKEASE!!!!
