2019-08-12: They have again updated this event instead of making a new one, with more terrible gachapon and extremely high requirements. Added a new heading for the updates so you don’t have to hunt for the changes.


2019-06-28: Spotted Sunfish added, there’s a new non-hidden event fish added every friday for a while. Event lasts until the end of July.

2019-06-13: New “Hiding Fish” feature added; it’s part of this event. There are also new Fusion fish (not part of the event). IAP pig added.

Video guide for new features:

2019-05-31: Video Guide made! Updated total cost


2019-05-30: The update appears to be live but is likely a slow rollout like all of them. Added total cost (thanks Pufferfish Planet!). Added exact requirement for the frogo.

General Event Info

Events slowly rollout (every time, yes it sucks), so don’t panic if you don’t get it. Expect it by the end of the week after it first starts rolling out. Events end at the end of the month and every month has an event now

Currency from prior events will be preserved (but invisible) for later events, so feel free to save up. (Until they take it away again which they did twice…)

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.

August Update

They’re killing me with these weird updates to existing events, so all the info for stuff added to the event in August is here. The event ends at August 27th now. Don’t expect a new event before september.

Note the devs are idiots and this event requires lots of crossover with the Anniversary Event, including getting poseidon which is impossible in the time frame given (without spending pearls/money).

New Fish Lottery

Another lottery, click the Quest button in the top left of the Abyss tank to access it. You spend bananas or (preferably) farm materials to spin, you get the Golden Turtle for getting one of each. Odds for rare fish apparently increase every 30 pulls. Expect 100+ pulls to get one of each fish.

July Hiding Fish Update

As part of an update released (slow rollout) on June 13th, there are 5 new Fusion Fish, and 5 new “hiding fish.” The Hiding Fish are a gachapon, and very rough estimates from Reddit suggest around 50 pulls are expected to get one of each fish. Keep in mind this could vary wildly.

Limited Event Hiding Fish

These are obtained at random from paying either farm materials or Event Currency (just use whatever you have a relatively greater abundance of). The cost slowly rises as you buy more fish. The menu is accessed by tapping Tropical Quest at the top of the Saltwater Tank, then Find New Hiding Fish at the top of that menu.

What you get is random, and once one of each is gotten you can get the Gold Sunfish. You get extremely minor rewards every 6 fish; just Gems and Luck Shell gachapon pulls.

  • Sheep Nudibranch
    • Common
  • Weedy Scorpionfish
    • Common
  • Red Lipped Batfish
    • Rare
  • Peacock Shrimp
    • Rare
  • Flying Fish
    • Ultra Rare
  • Gold Sunfish
    • Create one of each of the above fish, then you get this for free
