Valentine’s Day 2020 Event Hidden Fish

Full table below. The worst part aside from the total cost, is the ad-watch unlocks. You’ll have to first watch 15 Farm Materials ads to unlock the Balloon Butterfly in order to then unlock the Sugar Cookie Seahorse, and only then can you start working on the 15 SotM skill cast grind for a later fish.

Past Valentine’s Day Event Fish (2017-2019)

Most of the 2017-2019 fish aren’t hidden and are in the Fusion/Old Event subtab of the Event tab (the fish with the green loop icon). The Valentine’s Day Reef is not returning, and neither are any fish that were “attached” to it.

Three 2019 fish have new unlocks below. If you got them last year, they unlock instantly, and you can make 1 extra one this year. The rest of the old fish have no unlock, you just need to own 2 of the fish that create it.

Note that many users are reporting the Event Fusion Fish are consuming resources but not actually creating the fish. There’s no known fix for this bug and it will likely require an app update from the devs to address. The bug is inconsistent, some people don’t get it at all, some people get it several times in a row.

If in doubt, I’d hold off on making fuson fish for the time being unless you get an app update saying it’s fixed it.

Valentine’s Day 2020 Event Gameplay

General Event Info

Events slowly rollout from the app stores (every time, yes it sucks), so don’t panic if you don’t get it. APKs have been disabled, but you can use the Tap App (not affiliated with me!) to download the update early on android. You can delete the Tap App afterwards. There’s no way to get it early on iOS.

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.

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 (unless it doesn’t, because the devs like to do that).

Hermit Crab Levels

The Hermit Crab is the key to completing events. Buy the Event Dye 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.

  1. Hidden Retro Seadragon is: Take a picture of 7 different Retro fishes.
    I’ve been looking for the new guide for the Retro Event since it started.

  2. Help help I’m stuck on the new retro event and your guide isn’t out yet :'( I can’t figure out the hidden sea dragon. Also there’s not fusion tab?

  3. So I got the balloon fish and made all 5 candy nautilus and I still haven’t gotten the hidden sugar cookie fish not sure if this has to do with the bug. I guess I’m just gonna try to make another candy nautilus even though I only have 14 seaweeds lol. Let me know if I’m missing something? Thank you!!

    1. Honestly I don’t know, several people have had this issue and many more have not. If you had existing candy nautilus from last year they don’t count though, and you’ll have to make 5 new ones for this year. The seaweed is a huge problem and I can’t believe they haven’t solved it yet. You need like 10x more seaweed than anything else and it’s crazy hard to keep up

  4. I’m fairly certain I did not spend 500 crabs to get the penguin postman, I only got the crab farm yesterday and hadn’t bought anything with crabs until today. I had a little over 250 or 260 crabs with a few left, I don’t know the exact amount but I only had 260. Do past crab purchases count? I may have spent crabs gotten from the video rewards?

    1. No idea, it’s a buggy af game so best not to worry about it too much. I definitely had to spend 500 new crabs since the event started, but I doubt actually owning the crab farm matters

    1. You have to make it, you have to make several other past fish even if you already owned them anyway

      1. Anyone have ideas on how to make the past Heart Oarfish if I don’t already own it? The 2019 instructions are to “Equip Romantic Ocean Theme and take 1 picture of every Candy/Couple fish,” which I’ve done (equipped theme and then re-took all the couple and candy/sweets-related fish), but it’s still locked…?

        1. As always with events the old fish are just plain ol fusion fish in the old event subtab of the event tab. There are no unlocks, just gotta own the current year fish that makes it

          1. THIS event is impossible to finish for me cause I don’t own any fish for previous years. I just started this year. Can’t create new fish without the old ones so now I’m stuck!
