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.
|Carrot Tang||Unlocked by default||200|
|Lettuce Spadefish||Buy 3 Carrot Tangs||200|
|Turnip Boxfish||Fuse 3 new Honey Bee Goby|
(Fusion Fish, click the recycled clownfish icon above the Event menu)
|Onion Dumbo Octopus||Get Carrots by watching ads 15 times (top ad in event tab)||800|
|Corn Flying Fish||Use 300 Clams|
Fusion, Hiding Fish, and Expand Items all count towards this total
|Farm Assistant Axolotl||Fuse 10 past event fish||2,000|
|Worker Frog||Place Farm Tools expansion item twice|
See Expand Quest then buy a second item with pearls
|Farmer Octopus||Fuse 3 new Golden Key Seahorse||2,000|
|Orchard Penguin||Share photo of "Farm Rocking Chair" once|
This is an item from the Expand quest, see below
|Baby Eggplant Beluga||Upgrade Hermit Crab to level 8||8,000|
|Vegetable Field Manta Ray||Own 3 Nepenthes Gulper Eel||10,000|
|Straw Pile Saltwater Crocodile||Create 12 SPECIES of past-event Fusion Fish|
If you made them last year, you still have to re-create them this year
|Dairy Cow Dugong||Own all prior fish in this list|
Own 80 Farm event fish
The checkmark doesn't show until BOTH requirements are met at once
|Farm Village Whale||Complete the Farm Event Quest |
|Straw Hat Chick||Medium/Large Luck Shell|
Note Hiding Fish goals can give free Luck Shell spins too that count for this
|Farm Donkey||Fusion tab|
Own 2 Farm Village Whale
|Costs Fusion Materials and 2 Farm Village Whale|
Past Event Fish
If you cannot find a fish for an unlock, I guarantee is is in the Past Event Fish tab that every single event has and you will always need to use.
Past Event fish are always Fusion fish, create 2 of each current event fish to unlock them all.
Mid-Summer Farmer’s Paradise Event Quests
The Event Quests (and several unrelated things) are crammed into the “event” calendar icon. Tap it to bring up 5 submenus, listed here in order.
Big Fish Quest
The Carrot icon. As always, the “Big Fish” in the event requires you to complete a separate 5 stage quest before you can buy it, then you spend 100,000 currency on the fish itself.
|Fresh Vegetables||Own 3 Lettuce Spadefish|
|Tile Installation||Place 1 Whitestone tile extension|
Place 1 Darkstone Tile expand item (see Expand Quest)
|Farm Family||Tap 30 Worker Frog bubbles|
Buy 3 Farmer Octopus
Buy 3 Orchard Penguins
|Farm Pump Installation||Place 1 Farm Pump expand item|
(see Expand Quest)
|The End of Beauty||Own 3 Dairy Cow Dugongs|
Use 150,000 carrots
This is not related to the event, these are the always-available, never-expiring gachapon fish. Though more Hiding fish are often added mid-event, they are not tied to the event in any way; they do not expire and are not required for the event.
The bubble icon. This is not part of the event, but a paid gachapon for Expand items from prior events. I strongly recommend ignoring it. The more expensive gachapons (that cost real money) give more expensive old Expand items.
The basket icon. Note they’ve added a confusing extra thing where Subscription owners get a couple “free” expand items once they’ve completed the final unlock. These items are duplicates and not required for anything (you can make duplicates on your own with pearls).
These are all listed ingame. As always, the 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.
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.
Event Completion Reward
The Clownfish icon. This tab you can claim a measly 200 pearls for completing extremely difficult event completion challenges. Not remotely worth trying for, as the Straw Hat Chick is sure to cost a hefty multiple of 200 pearls for most players.
There are no unique items or unlocks here, it’s just 200 pearls.
Mid-Summer Farmer’s Paradise Event 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).
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.
