Full table below. The worst part aside from the total cost, is the ad-watch unlocks.

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.
|Fish Name||Unlock Condition||Cost|
|Girl Cupid||Create 20 new 2020 Valentine's Event fish||100,000|
Max 1 more
|Baby Heart Sunfish||Log in on February 14th||100,000|
Max 1 more
|Baby Pink Whale||Log in on February 21th||100,000|
Max 1 more
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||Buy event Dye||0 Currency||200 Currency/cast|
|2||5 Event Fish||500||400|
