Apparently we were told candy would carry over to the next event. I personally do not trust this at all given the multiple times they’ve gone back or attempted to go back on that.

  • Slow rollout starting 2019-01-29, slow rollouts mean it can take up to a week to get it
  • It’s a return to the old “crab” style events; it’s in the Saltwater tank, the Hermit Crab is back and can be cast 10 times per day for free
    • Theme, Dye, and Costume for coralite will be included like old times!
  • 17 new fish + 1 IAP. 1 “Quest” fish unlocked by completing a vague quest, just like Egypt/Pirate/2nd Anniversary events. If you missed those you can check out those guides for how they worked.
    • 2017 fish are back too.
    • 2018 fish/coral are NOT back, except Pygmy Whales
  • New attendance mission with 5 new rewards for daily check ins up to 20 days

Valentine’s Day Event Roadmap

First, note all your candies are gone (Halloween stole them) so you’re starting from 0. You need 200 candies to buy the Banquet Hall Dye to unlock the crab, which should be your first step. Watching 2 ads is enough, though you should keep tapping candy for the 50 candy Quest.

With 200 roses collected, close the main menu and tap the painter’s palette, then the Dye tab to get the Banquet Hall Dye and Crab. Tap the Event tab again to get the crab, it’s free real estate.

With the Dye  and Crab purchased, you should be casting it as often as possible, up to 10 times per day (you can recharge it halfway for 100 pearls, a total rip-off so don’t).

The crab is the fastest and easiest way to get candy, especially without a macro (which requires Nox Player and a PC or Mac). Keep the dye equipped, because otherwise you can’t use the crab. Don’t bother tapping roses unless you’re charging the crab, it’s seriously a drop in the ocean compared to ads and the crab. Only if you’re using a macro should you try otherwise.

To make tapping candy easier, store all fish but 5 or more Jellyfish or Clownfish. They stay in a small area and are easy to tap.

Level up the crab the instant you can each time, it’s hard to overstate how critical it is to completing this style of event.

Complete each step of the Quest as soon as you can, as a couple steps require you to perform tasks after unlocking the step.

With the help of the ads you should be able to get the Hermit Crab to level 6-8 within the first 24 hours, after which you can focus more on collecting the fish. Just be sure to finish upgrading the crab once you have the 30 fish required for the final levels.

Valentine’s 2018 Fish

None of the corals or fish are available, except the Pygmy Whales. They’re in the “returning fish” tab, the Orange Clownfish icon at the top of the Event menu. They are Fusion Fish making them extremely costly.

  • A Pair of Pygmy Right Whales
    • 2 Wedding Town Whales

Valentine’s 2017 Fish

These are also in the “returning fish” tab, the Orange Clownfish icon at the top of the Event menu. They are Fusion Fish making them extremely costly. They all cost fusion materials (see the fusion guide) plus 2 2019 Valentine’s fish.

Valentine’s Gift

This is another 20 day set of rewards just like the New Year’s Gift. Also like New Year’s Gift, you frustratingly only get a single one of each item and can do nothing to accelerate how fast you get anything beyond longing in once a day. Hopefully we have more than 20 days unlike the NYG at least.

Valentine’s Parade Event Quest

Much simpler than the separate tank quests, the Valentine’s Day one is only a quest to unlock the Cupid Girl fish. Note you have to complete these in order.

  • Decorate the Party
    • Tap 50 roses
  • Get Candies
    • Own 1 of each Candy fish
      • Candy Nautilus
      • Candy Goldfish
      • Candy Turtle
    • Yes that is the requirement, there are no candies to get, I don’t know why people keep asking this. Just do what is said on the requirements in the guide and totally ignore the ingame UI text, it is terrible and misleading.
  • Who is the best couple
    • After this quest unlocks, make one of each “couple” fish
      • Couple Lobsters
      • Couple Seahorses
      • Couple Gourami
  • Thanks for the goddess of love
    • Collect 100 Clams
      • After this quest unlocks
  • Welcoming of whales for cupid
    • Get one of each Valentine’s whale:
      • Wedding Town Whale (2019)
