Small fish are tamable mobs found in oceans.

Spawning Edit

Small fish spawn in water between layers 46 and sea level in ocean and deep ocean biomes.


Small fish come in eight different colors. These include grey (anchovy), yellow-white stripes (angelfish), dark grey with blue spots (angler), blue (hippotang), orange striped (clownfish) yellow-gold (goldfish), orange with blue stripes (mandarin), and red (piranha).

Drops Edit

When killed, small fish drop 0-2 raw fish and 0-2 eggs. They drop 1-3 experience when killed by a player or tamed wolf.

Behavior Edit

Small fish are always passive towards the player, except for piranhas, which attack the player on sight.

They swim around almost immediately when first spawned into the world and wander around aimlessly, swimming up and down through each layer. Occasionally, small fish will stay in one spot for a while. They are not attracted to light, and do not deliberately interact with the player, other than swimming away from the player when approached. They will also swim towards a fish hook that is used in water. They can then be reeled in this way with a fishing rod.

Small fish suffocate if they are beached on land for too long. While on land, they do not move, and stay stationary until they suffocate. They can take fall damage and burn like any mob, but they cannot drown.

 Herd following Edit

Piranhas have a 'herd following AI', in which they hang out in a group. If one wanders away the others follow it. When piranhas attack, they remain in the group and sometimes one moves towards the player, attacks and returns back to the group. Sometimes one moves towards the player but doesn't attack and returns to the group, and acts as a sort of 'shy'/aggressive behavior.


Small fish are tamed by using a fish net on them. The net will catch the fish, which will then appear in your inventory. After being released from the net, the naming screen will appear and the fish will be tamed. Small fish can be also be tamed by hatching their eggs in water.

Variations Edit

There are eight types of small fish.

  • The appearance of piranhas is based on the red-bellied piranha.
  • Piranhas are the smallest hostile mobs in Mo' Creatures.
