Dave the Diver has a whole variety of different fishes that players will come across. One of the most unique fishes in the sea is a Horned Parrotfish, which looks like a fish with a mix of a bull. If you’re wondering how to catch one of these rare creatures — we have you covered. This guide will walk you through the steps one must take to increase the chances of catching the Horned Parrotfish in Dave the Diver.

How to Capture the Horned Parrotfish in Dave the Diver

The first fact players must know about the Horned Parrotfish in Dave the Diver is that players can find it around 35 to 50 meters deep in the Blue Hole. Instead of waiting for one of these creatures to spawn, the game will notify the player to hunt the Horned Parrotfish, giving the player enough time to prepare to capture it. It is also important to note that the Horned Parrotfishes have a higher spawn rate on the weekends.
