Fancy Fish is a Minecraft mod that introduces a number of exotic fish mobs and craftable items including fish food, fish bowls, fish tanks and a fishing net to capture and keep them as pets.
Fancy Fish Mod adds a number of exotic fish mobs that can be farmed or bred by the player. A number of craftable items are provided to help the player capture fish, including a fishing net and a fish bowl for carrying live fish around. It is also possible to craft a decorative fish tank block that can be filled with a water bucket and captured fish. Fish can be harvested for scales that are used to craft a number of items, including fish scale armour and an enchanted fish scale sword.

This mod adds the following exotic fish mobs: Clownfish, Regal Tang, Moorish Idol, Pufferfish, Royal Gramma, Yellow Tang, Damselfish, Blenny, Moonfish.
Future updates will add the following mobs: Flounder, Goldfish, Angelfish, Anthias, Butterflyfish, Cardinalfish, Guppy.
Fish can be captured alive using a Fishing Net and kept in portable Fish Bowls for later release in the wild or in a Fish Tank block. Alternatively, fish can be killed by attacking them or release them away for water, and harvested for their colourful scales that can be crafted in various items.
Hold fish food while in water to attract nearby fish. You can also feed it to fish to breed them. Fish food is crafted from wheat seeds and ink sacs.

Fish bowls allow you to keep captured fish alive for transportation and release in water or a fish tank. Fish bowls can be crafted with glass panes and sand. Use the fish bowl against a solid block or water to release the fish captured within it. When a fish is released in water, it will resume its swimming habits. If released on land on the other hand, the fish will bounce about until landing in water or until they die of asphyxiation within a few seconds of being released.

Fish Scale Axe
A fish scale axe is a powerful enchanted tool that chops through tree logs very quickly. For each chopped trunk there is a 50% chance that the block will spawn an apple. Of these applies, there is a 10% possibility of getting a golden apple.
A fish scale axe can be crafted using sticks and green fish scales set in a pattern similar to vanilla axe tools.

Fish tanks are decorative blocks that can be filled with a water bucket and host fish within it.

Fish can be transferred from fish bowls into a fish tank via a user interface that is accessed by right-clicking the fish tank block, provided it is filled with water. The tank interface shows a fish tank with a capacity of 9 fish slots at the top and the player’s inventory underneath it. When captured fish are transferred to the tank, they are released into the tank and an empty fish bowl is returned to the player’s inventory. Fish placed within the tank can be seen swimming around within it. If the fish tank is drained of water via an empty bucket or it is destroyed, any contained fish will be released and will exhibit their flopping behaviour until caught, landing in water or death by asphyxiation. Fish tanks are crafted using glass panes, sand and sugar canes.
