This is a guide for Tap Tap Fish – AbyssRium, with only the Halloween Event (2018) information. See the main guide for a more comprehensive set of information. Feel free to add any of my guides to your homescreen for easy access, and offline loading of guides you’ve used (on supported devices)!Update: 2018-10-30: Video Guide! All unlocks found, minor corrects. Corrected Witchhouse Football Fish. Possible “real” unlock for star ray, unsure which is correct.2018-10-25: I streamed the update recently if you want to take a peek!It is a slow rollout and will take you a while to get. Despite literally every single update AbyssRium has ever done rolling out in the same (stupid) fashion I still get spammed every time it updates about this. Please don’t ask about it.Support me on Patreon to help me keep making helpful guides! Paypal also accepted.After too long the Halloween event for 2018 is finally upon us! It’s got it’s own coralite (as many suspected) and is accessed via the Map icon when the main menu is closed, just like Freshwater. As always there’s a slow rollout and it may take up to a week for everyone to get it.
New Event StyleAs many suspected, the Freshwater separate coralite situation was used as an excuse to make Candy worthless. The new event is in a totally new style similar to the Freshwater coralite. I’ll explain the tabs and their functions here.Your candy from prior events carries over, but is basically totally worthless. There is no per-tap vitality so don’t waste your time tapping beyond collecting candy. The basic loop is collect candy, use candy to upgrade the Witch’s Pot to get more Vitality, use Vitality to buy event fish, event fish increase the candy you get allowing you to ultimately get more Vitality and so on.QuestComplete the tasks to unlock “coral”, cosmetic vitality producing items (that do not produce enough vitality to be worth it, but they unlock fish so get them anyway). The Quest requirements are in a section below.CrabCandy is now only used to upgrade the Hermit Crab, which now functions like the Coralite. Upgrading the crab with candy will produce more “Halloween Vitality” which is spent on Halloween fish.Collect 50 candy from bubbles to make the hermit crab dance, like before and it still earns candies in return; a lot more now, so prior stocked up candy is basically crap. It now sleeps for an hour after dancing, and can be reset by watching an ad.There are additions to the crab that can be unlocked via the Quest and also upgraded in the same tab as the Crab. They’re basically Coral. FishAll fish are in the same tab, and only in the Halloween Coralite. They cost Halloween Vitality instead of Candy, and prior event fish are mixed into the same huge list (and prior purchased old event fish do not count!). See below sections for prior event hidden fish unlocks.Fish are separated by tank meaning your old Halloween fish cannot be put in the Halloween Tank, and new fish bought in the Halloween Tank cannot be put in your saltwater or freshwater tanks.Fish prices rise exponentially with each purchase, so don’t buy too many repeats that are unnecessary, focus on unlocking all fish first, then decide what you want duplicates of.MagicThis is where you upgrade Trick or Treat (the Crab dance skill), and also where two extremely overpriced consumable boosters are. Don’t bother buying the ones with pearls.Halloween Event (2018) Event StatsStart Date: 2018-10-24End Date: 2018-11-24* *End dates are roughly estimated; events last around a month, but we’ve never told in advance when the end is because AbyssRium’s communication is terrible.New Fish: 11Total Fish: 50IAP Fish: 3 new IAP fish, one in each tank (sheesh). Only one affects HalloweenTotal cost: All but impossible to determine in the new format before actually reaching itGeneral Event InfoEvents slowly rollout (every time, yes it sucks), so don’t panic if you don’t get it. Expect it by the end of the week after it first starts rolling out.We never know when the events end until less than a week before they do, they’re usually at least 4 weeks long though.Currency from prior events will be preserved (but invisible) for later events, so feel free to save up.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.Hidden FishNote that some lock conditions are listed on the lock icon rather than with the other lock conditions, you need to meet all conditions and no popup will tell you when you unlock them since they are not hidden.Beware buying duplicates the maximum vitality per second appears to have a hard cap, some players report possibly being locked out of getting the Kraken due to this. Buy only fish needed for unlocks if possible, until you get the last fish. Yes, it sucks, yes, tell the devs you’re not happen about that aspect on Facebook.Regarding Tombstone unlocks, just take 5 pictures of all 4 Tombstones and it should count, then just ignore the tombstone unlocks unless you’re sure it’s what you’re missing.New Player SpreadsheetThis event is kind of a trainwreck for new players, who have it several times harder than other players, and can possibly lock themselves out of the kraken by buying too many of the wrong fish.Use this spreadsheet by u/iloveregex to be sure you don’t mess up if you want to be careful about how many of each to buy!Fall 2017 Event FishFor some reason the Fall 2017 fish are extremely high level hidden unlocks. Thanks to the Subreddit for finding these.Star Sickle FishCollect candy from Whales 5 timesTake 5 pictures of the 4th tombstoneFall forest fairy fishDubious laboratory level 2000Acquire 5 bone dolphinsAcquire 5 vampire manta raysFall forest football fish Use Trick or Treat skill 200 timesOwn 5 Fall Forest Fairy FishCollect candy from the Star Sickle Fish 5 timesFall forest dumbo octopus Level 6000 Hungry Coffin Collect candy from a dolphin 50 timesCollect candy from the Fall Forest Football Fish 10 timesLight jellyfishOwn 10 fall forest dumbo octopusCollect candy 150 times from jellyfishShare a photo of the Witch’s denStar striped marlinTake 10 pictures while activating Halloween Moon Night skill Costs 300 pearlsTo avoid wasting even more pearls, do the following unlocks at the same time:Take 30 photos Take 5 photos of the Fall Forest Football FishCollect candy 200 times from jellyfishRiddle Jack O’ Lantern level 6000Star turtle Take 10 pictures while activating Spookies Parade skillAnother 300 pearl waste…To avoid wasting even more pearls, do the following as well while using the skill:Take 5 photos of the Fall Forest Manta RayTake 5 photos of the Star striped marlin Take 30 picturesDubious laboratory level 6000Star Dolphin Take 30 pictures while activating Halloween Moon Night skillCollect candy 300x from dolphinsOwn 5 star turtlesStar Ray (Unconfirmed)Collect candies 300 times from raysWitch’s Den Level 6000Take 30 pictures while activating Spookie’s Parade skillPossible alternative:10 star dolphinsUse Trick or Treat 500 timesCollect candy 300x from rays.Fall Forest Ray Trick or Treat level 20 Collect Candy 30 times from Light jellyfishTake 5 photos of the Fall Forest Football Fish while activating Halloween Moon Night skillStar ocean sunfish Acquire 10 Star RaysTake 5 photos of the Star striped marlin while activating Spookies paradeCollect Candy 100x from sunfishFall forest narwhal Collect candy 100x from narwhalsAcquire 10 Fall Forest Manta RaysAcquire 10 Lamp NarwhalsStar whale Collect candy 200x from whalesAcquire 5 Star SunfishTake 5 photos of Star Turtles while activating Halloween Moon Night skillFall forest whaleTake 5 photos of the Fall Forest Manta Ray while activating Spookies ParadeAcquire 5 Fall Forest NarwhalsCollect Candy 200x from sharksHalloween 2017 Event FishMummy Mahi MahiOwn 33 event fish! Most people that can’t unlock it overlook this requirement, it’s listed under the lock on the right side of the fish list because the devs don’t know how to design UINote that for non-hidden fish, nothing pops up saying you’ve unlocked itTake a picture of the #1 TombstoneThey’re NOT numbered, but this is one of the two in the frontYou will not get a pop up confirming it worked, since this is NOT a hidden fish.Devil BoxfishIf you don’t get this one, you probably forgot to tap on the Witch’s Pot to focus the camera on it. All camera unlocks require focusing on the target.The rest of the 2017 and 2016 Halloween Fish are listed ingame and not hidden, I just listed this because everyone is tripped up by the 33 event fish unlock. Most fish have a requirement under the lock icon tooHalloween (2018) Event FishI’m only listing the new fish here, see below sections for the old halloween fish. There is a huge fish list almost totally unsorted since all the old fish were shoved in here.Pumpkin BlobfishOwn 3 Bone FishAll of these unlocks only count new fish in the Halloween CoraliteReaper SeapigTake photo of Devil BoxfishOwn Weeping Tree (unlock via Quest)Pumpkin NautilusLevel 500 Weeping TreeOwn 5 Football Fish Vampire SeahorseTake photo of Ghost SeahorseOwn 5 NautilusThese sort of unlocks seem to require X amount of any Halloween fish, inside the Halloween Coralite mapPumpkin OctopusOwn Hungry CoffinOwn 5 SeahorseKnight OctopusOwn Hungry CoffinOwn 5 SeahorseReaper JellyfishTake photo of Death Squid Own 5 SquidFranken SunfishOwn Witch’s DenOwn 5 RayMummy SharkOwn Witch’s DenOwn 5 SunfishLamp NarwhalLevel 900 Witch’s DenShare a photo of Mummy SharkHalloween KrakenOwn 5 Halloween WhaleOwn 170 total Halloween FishOwn 39 different kinds of Halloween FishHalloween 2018 Hidden FishWizard FrogGet Trick or Treat level 5 (upgrade with Gems in Magic Tab)This costs a couple thousand gems, but you get them back by completing the Quests so it’s not too badUse Trick or Treat 100 times (!!!)Yes, watching ads to reset the skill countsTake 5 photos of “Tombstone #2” whichever one that isZombie PiranhaTap Jellyfish candy 50 timesTake 5 pictures of the 3rd TombstoneSeems to be the one back and Do this last so you know it’ll workOwn 5 JellyfishVampire Penguin Collect candies from Wizard Frog 10 times Use Trick or Treat 300 timesTake 5 photos of Tombstone number 2 (right behind)Witchhouse Football FishComplete Witch’s Castle quest (finish all other quests)Own 57 types of Halloween fish (all other fish Kraken and fall fish included)Max of 1Halloween 2018 Event Premium FishAs always, the premium fish are listed in the Shop > Gems tab, not the Event tab. They’re not required to unlock any other content, ever.Little Witch$10 IAPBought in Halloween mapBenefits the Halloween EventKoala $10 IAPBought in Saltwater mapDoes not benefit the Halloween eventMandarin Duck$10 IAPBought in Freshwater MapDoes not benefit the Halloween eventOld Event Fish (2016-2017)The Fall 2017, Halloween 2016, and Halloween 2017 fish are included, but with totally new unlocks that I can’t actually see because I was awarded all of them for unlocking them in prior events.Any fish you got from a prior event or in the luck shell will automatically be unlocked, the others have to be unlocked in the Halloween tank with new conditions. Let me know the new conditions if you find them because I cannot test or check them.This is a really dumb, unnecessary over complication imo.Halloween 2018 QuestsThese quests give rewards (including Candy, Vitality, and Gems) and unlock the next “coral” in the game. They’re required for fish unlocks and help you progress in the event, so keep an eye on them.Everything in this event only counts what’s in the event tank, and only gems transfer between tanks.
