The Pupfish is a critter that spawns infrequently in bodies of water in the Desert, including the Oasis. Like Goldfish, they swim passively back and forth in water. They can be caught with a Bug Net to be carried around in the inventory and released later, or crafted into a Pupfish Bowl to be used as furniture. Once crafted, the bowled Pupfish cannot be released again, and when placed down it moves around inside the bowl as it would do outside.

Unlike many critters, Pupfish are capable of spawning on screen.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Much like the Terraria critters, real-life pupfish are usually only found in intense conditions and isolated locations, such as the rare Devil's Hole pupfish which is only found in its namesake, a water-filled cave in Nevada.
  • Unlike the Goldfish Bowl, the Pupfish Bowl is not an armor or accessory item, nor is the Pupfish a consumable food ingredient.
  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Pupfish: "These fish prefer isolated, extreme climates where competition is scarce, such as the lakebeds of a desert oasis."
