  • Base ATK 42

  • 20 x Rusty Koi

  • 3 x Raimei Angelfish
  • 10 x Pufferfish
  • 10 x Bitter Pufferfish

Where To Find Ornamental Fish


Ornamental fish are rare versions of regular fish. When approaching a fishing spot if you see a blue pillar of light this means that there are ornamental fish in this location. They cannot be traded since they count as furnishing items.

You'll be able to spot the ornamental fish easily since they often jump out of the water, unlike regular fish. To catch them simply use the same bait you would usually. The only difference is that sometimes you'll need to reel them in for a little longer, so having the region-specific fishing rods can help with this.

How To Add Ornamental Fish To Your Pond

Once you've caught the fish and crafted the Pool of Sapphire Grace, you'll need to place the pond down in your Serenitea Pot. Next, simply walk up to the water and you will see a Raise Fish option appear. Click this and select the ornamental fish you want to add.

At this point, fish appear to be decorative only with no other use and will not breed.
