There are many fish in the Sea++ and this aims to be a handy guide to catch all of them, from the smallest ones up to some giant mythological creatures. Have your bait ready, we’re going fishing!
Found at: Spongy corner
Description: Perpetually frightened.
How to Catch: Search for “Small, quick moving shapes… …gasping softly.”. Since they are very easily frightend, dont try to take one. Instead use the Spell Mute to make their warning gasps useless. Alternatively, Motes of Water and Death. Salve Mundi disturbs them. Havent tried other Spells, Air, Fire, Chaos, Fear and Life yet.
Found at: Staghorn
Description: “Teeth too big. Form schools in reef near the antler coral.”
How to Catch: Search for “Toothy fish… …moving together.” Then take it.
Also called Myxini.
Found at: Rocky Overhang
Description: “Have skull, but no spine. Interesting!
When agitated, produces milky and fibrous slime. Makes it very hard to contain.
Likes hiding under rocks.
Exciting fact: Hagfish can enter and eviscerate the bodies of sea creatures much larger than themselves!”
How to Catch: Search for “A worm-like thing… …slightly slimy.” Trying to take it won’t work, it secrets Slime. Alchemical Solution “Goo b Gone” might work, havent tested yet. Alternatively, using Motes of Water and Earth before taking it work. Havent tried other Air, Fire, Chaos, Fear and Life yet.
Commonly named Sea cucumber
Found at: Coral Cave, Anemone Field
Description: “Holothurian has a more common name, but I forget it. They have leathery skin, and long, sluggish bodies. They cannot swim, only crawl. They come in many different colors. I am sure there are differences between them, but I do not care because they all taste the same and aren’t alchemically useful. Very common in normal reefs, but in the dark reef, they only cluster in colorful areas.”
How to Catch: Search for “A colorful lumpy creature… …crawling along the floor.” Then take it.
Found at: Seagrass
Description: “Eyes can be used to see future. Often loses track of present. Eats seagrass. Look for blue glow from eyes.”
