The Fish Bowl, Gold Fish Bowl Desktop version, Pupfish Bowl Desktop version, and Lava Serpent Bowl Desktop version are decorative furniture items. The Fish Bowl and Gold Fish Bowl also double as wearable items that can be equipped in the player's helmet slot.

Fish Bowls cause only visual effects when placed in the helmet vanity slot. When instead placed in the functional head armor slot, the breath meter appears as if the player were underwater, and if worn long enough the player will drown and die. Breathing aids like the Breathing Reed or Gills Potion will allow for normal breathing when wearing the bowl.

The Fish, Gold Fish and Pupfish Bowls are crafted, while the Lava Serpent Bowl has a 19.5*39/200 (19.5%) chance of being found inside Obsidian Crates and Hellstone Crates.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • On Desktop version Desktop, wearing a Fish Bowl will activate the Merfolk buff; on Console version Console, Old-gen console version Old-gen console, Mobile version Mobile, and 3DS version3DS, it will not.
  • Old-gen console version3DS version When placed, attempting to destroy a Fish Bowl with a pickaxe or drill will not drop it, so it cannot be recovered once placed. However, it is possible to retrieve it by breaking the blocks beneath it.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The Fish Bowl sells for 2000*20, while its components only net 754*754 in total when sold (1246*1246 / 62.3% less).

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Fish Bowls will not turn red during a Blood Moon.
  • The Gold Fish Bowl's tooltip, "'Is it a gold bowl? Or a gold fish?'", is a reference to the ambiguous name which could either mean a fish bowl which is gold, or a bowl containing a gold fish. It is actually both.
  • The Lava Serpent seems to be the alive form of Bone Serpents, as it is mentioned in their Bestiary entry that they had obsidian scales: "Mighty serpentine dragons once ruled hell, but long ago shed their obsidian scales. A skeletal husk is all that remains."
