      Coral 6 got lots of of them if you aim for the Gold Crown

      At the same time you can also keep an eye out for the Gold Crown Dabber since there are tons of coral birds on the way starting from area 1

          Does NOT need to be night time to get a gold crown in Coral Highlands area 6. I just caught mine, and in the upper left of the UI is a sun. Sun is out in every above ground zone. Fast Travel shows daytime for all zones.

            On the bottom of area 6 in Coral Highlands there is a lot of Burst Arowana. Its a little trick since you got your feet in the water, scaring the fishes.
