This is a guide for Tap Tap Fish – AbyssRium, with only the Brave Viking 2020 information. There’s no hidden fish. Boring and increasingly makes me disinterested in the game. Please consider supporting my Patreon (and get perks!) if my guides help you. See the main guide for a more comprehensive set of information and for links to other events.

Unlike “quest” unlocks, these unlocks can be done at any time, but they will very often depend on customization items, other fish in the list, or expand quest items before you can unlock them.
As with every single event, some of these require taking photos of or placing non-fish items. These are always part of the “expand quest” explained below, that must always be completed in tandem with the rest of the unlocks.
|Beer Mug Clownfish||Use Hermit Crab skill 3 times||200|
|Viking Giant Isopod||Place Yellow Runestone expand item |
(see Expand Quest below)
|Viking Footballfish||Share 2 pictures of Red Runestone expand item |
(see Expand Quest below)
|Viking Sea Urchin||Take 3 pictures of Blue Runestone expand item |
(see Expand Quest below)
|Warrior Boreal Digging Frog||Use 150 Sea Urchins||800|
|Dragon Gulper Eel||Create 15 fish from Past Event Fish tab||2000|
|Warrior Arowana||Place 2 Needle Fir expand items|
(see Expand Quest, and buy one extra with Pearls)
|Viking Otter||Own 5 Warrior Arowana||5000|
|Odin Penguin||Create 5 Treasure Map Barracuda |
(Past Event tab)
|Wizard Octopus||Upgrade Hermit Crab to level 10||8000|
|Bannerman Narwhal||Create 5 Admiral Basking Sharks||10000|
|Viking Ax Ray||Share 1 picture of Viking Hut expansion item (see Expand Quest)||10000?|
|Viking Ship Seahorse||Own 13 species of Viking Event fish (all the above)|
Own 100 total Viking Event fish
|Abyssal Kraken||Create 15 current event Whales||100,000|
|Aloha Nessie||Create 20 NEW species of past event fish. Fish created before this event do not count. Just go down the list making one of each until it unlocks.||100,000|
|Valkyrie Whale||Complete Event Quest||100,000|
Past Event Fish
Yes, this is where the Aloha Dumbo is.
Old event fish are not hidden, the “lock” icon will appear if you don’t have 2 of the fish they require. Just purchase 2 of each current event fish and you’ll see the fusion fish unlock one by one. If a fish is locked you just don’t have 2 of whatever makes it. They’re sorted in the same order as new fish: the fish at the very bottom require whales, the fish at the very top require the cheapest fish etc.
It is best to ignore past event fish until done with new fish if possible! If a new fish unlock requires 5 X, you have 4 X, and you fuse 1 X away, the counter will now consider you to have 3 X so you’ll have to create even more than before. This also applies to the hermit crab. Max out the Hermit Crab level at the very least before making past event fish.
Brave Viking Gameplay
General Event Info
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.
We don’t know when exactly the event ends, but events are monthly now, so it will probably end just at/after the end of the month and the next event will follow within a week usually.
The event is in the Abyss/Saltwater Tank like most events, and it will expire once the event time is over, but your event currency should roll over to the next event. This event plays basically just like the last 10 or so events, so hopefully you’re in the groove of things.
Hermit Crab Levels
The Hermit Crab is the key to completing events. Buy the Event Dye in the Palette menu to unlock it, then upgrade it as soon as possible. The costs and earning rates of each level is listed below, but every upgrade pays for itself after a day or so, so don’t worry too much.
Note you have to “buy” the crab in the event menu separately from the Dye, the button only works after buying the Dye.
|1||Buy event Dye||0 Currency||200 Currency/cast|
|2||5 Event Fish||500||400|
Easy Event Currency
The only easy way to get event currency is to use a Macro. Find out how in this video (trust me it’s easier to show).
Brave Viking Event Quests
Brave Viking Main Quest
As always, these steps must be completed in order, and progress towards later goals may not count until prior steps are finished. The quest unlocks nothing except the ability to buy the Big Fish of the event, which will cost 100,000 currency on top of the unlock.
|Runic Letter||Buy 3 new Runestone Tangs|
|Here comes the Vikings!||Share 1 photo of Viking Footballfish|
Buy 5 new Viking Sea Urchins
Touch bubbles over the heads of Viking Giant Isopods 15 times
|Odin's Visit||Take 4 pictures of Odin Penguin|
Place Viking Altar expand item
|Welcoming Party||Use 50,000 more event currency|
Buy 5 new Viking Ax Rays
|Viking Ship Sails||Buy 5 new Viking Ship Seahorses|
Brave Viking Event Expand Quest
As always, these steps must be completed in order, and progress towards later goals may not count until prior steps are finished. These unlocks are listed in game in the special button in the bottom left corner under the Clam icon. If a fish unlock requires a picture of something that isn’t a fish, you almost certainly have to unlock it here and take a picture of it.
Events generally require most if not all of these items be obtained to get some of the fish.
(Complete in order)
|Red Runestone||Take 1 photo of Beer Mug Clownfish|
|Blue Runestone||Watch event currency ad 3 times|
(the top one, NOT the hermit crab one)
|Prow Decoration||Buy 5 new Warrior Boreal Digging Frog|
|Needle Fir||Buy 5 new Dragon Gulper Eel|
|Viking Altar||Buy 5 new 5 Wizard Octopus|
|Viking Hut||Create 3 Pilot Saltwater Crocodile|
After unlocking the 1 free copy of an item, you can buy more of it with pearls in the Expand tab (they do not show up in Expand until unlocked). The farther down the list, the more pearls it costs.
Frequently Asked Event Questions
Q: What do you mean take a picture of ____?
A: If you’re confused by a request to place/take a picture of something that’s not a fish, it is almost certainly an event Expand decoration, which are always unlocked via the event-specific menu below the Lottery Fish Clam icon. These are never hidden, so just tap the icon to see what to do. These are required to be done every event to get some of the fish, so always do them as you’re trying to get fish.
Q: I can’t progress because my ads keep crashing!
A: Common AbyssRium bug they have never and likely will never fix. Try this Ad Crash Fix, and also note that by saving and reloading your cloud save, you can reset the Hermit Crab’s timer to collect event bubbles instead of watching ads at least.
Q: What’s the best way to get event currency?
A: Event currency is always the same (except for separate-tank events) and carries over through events. If you’ve seen someone with crazy amounts of currency, they’ve certainly just hoarded it from prior events. The only real way to get it is to upgrade the Hermit crab and cast it and watch the currency ad as often as possible.
This is a way to automate it.
