Neon Sign Moorish IdolsThese fish are impossible to get despite showing up in Manage Fish because the developers continue to be morons. They’ll probably be possible to unlock later. Every single month the devs add impossible fish into the list so get used to it.
New Years 2021 Event Video GuideThe events are samey enough and interest low enough I’m only making video guides and copy pasting the rest of the relevant info for the written guides. All unlocks, features etc are identical between events, only the graphics change now.

New Years 2021 Event 2020 FishUnlike “quest” unlocks, these unlocks can be done at any time, but they will very often depend on customization items, Past Event Fish, other fish in the list, or expand quest items before you can unlock them. If you don’t know what that means, see the headings titled Expand Quest or Past Event Fish for info. 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.
Past Event FishIf 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.
New Years 2021 Event QuestsThe Event Quests (and several unrelated things) are crammed into the “event” calendar icon. Tap it to bring up several submenus, listed here in order.
Big Fish QuestThe first 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.
Daily UnlocksThe checklist icon, if present. These are daily rewards to get you logging in daily and slow down the event considerably. It’s mostly Expand items, not required to unlock other fish, but the final reward is sometimes an exclusive fish. There’s usually 12 days of rewards so logging in 12 days in a row will get you all of them.
Expand QuestThe third 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). Ignore the ones at the bottom with a different color. These unlocks 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. Make sure to place it after unlocking it. 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.
Bingo QuestThe bingo quests, if present, are pretty simple, all unlocks are listed on the bingo board.
Lucky BubbleThe 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 rarer old Expand items.
Fish CreationThe Clownfish icon. This tab you can claim a measly few pearls for completing fairly difficult. No unique rewards, not required for the event.
Hiding FishThe Clam icon. 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.
New Years 2021 Event Gameplay
General Event InfoTotal cost is around 700,000 currency? 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 LevelsThe 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 CurrencyThe 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).
