This is a guide for Tap Tap Fish – AbyssRium, with only the June 5th Anniversary Event information and hidden fish. All events are effectively identical and seemingly will be going forward, so all information is basically the same as the last event. Information will be made generalized to help with all events.
Please consider supporting my Patreon (and get perks!) if my guides help you. See the main guide for a more comprehensive set of information and for links to other events.

2021-06-06: 5th anniversary event released in AbyssRium
EVERY event starts with impossible fish, so get used to it unfortunately. It’s to make them hard/impossible at the start I guess. Bingos that don’t seem to exist and fusion fish that are impossible to make are usually released 2-3 weeks into the event.

Tiles & other pictures
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.
Fish may also require Bingo tab unlocks, Daily Reward tab unlocks, or Big Fish Quest unlocks. There’s like a dozen menus and you have to check all of them. Yes it sucks, yes it’s awful design, no I have no idea why they’re so bad at this.
Past Event Fish
If you cannot find a fish for an unlock, I guarantee is is in the Past Event Fish tab. Every event requires the creation of past event fish.
Past Event fish are always Fusion fish, create 2 of each current event fish to unlock them all.
Anniversary Event Tank
The Anniversary Tank (behind the Map icon) is open again, and mostly the same as it ever was. New quests were added at the end of the existing quest line. They are not ‘hidden’ exactly, but won’t be shown (and can’t be completed) until all prior Quests are done.
5th Anniversary Event Quests
The Event Quests (and several unrelated things) are crammed into the “event” calendar icon. Tap it to bring up several submenus, listed here in order. If you need to take a photo/”place” an item, it is in one of these tabs!
Big Fish Quest
The 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.
The 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 but they may be required to unlock a 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 Quest (Tiles)
The 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.
The bingo quests, if present, are pretty simple, all unlocks are listed on the bingo board.
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 rarer old Expand items.
The Clownfish icon. This tab you can claim a measly few pearls for completing fairly difficult. No unique rewards, not required for the event.
The 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.
Concerningly rare, the 5th Anniversary Event actually comes with 1 new features! Click the Gameboy icon to play a minigame that can earn coins to buy Expand items. They do not seem required for other unlocks in the event.
5th Anniversary Event Gameplay
General Event Info
Total 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 Levels
The Hermit Crab is the key to completing events. Buy the Event Dye in the Palette menu to unlock it, then “buy” it in the event tab, 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|
Easy 5th Anniversary Event Currency
The only easy way to get event currency is to use a Macro. Find out how in this video below (trust me it’s easier to show).
Frequently Asked Event Questions
Q: I Don’t have ____ Tile!
A: See the “expand quest” section of the guide, every event has these, every event will force you to do them.
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.
