The Holefish is a small, passive fauna species, usually found near and within cavernous areas. It is catchable and edible.

The Holefish is very small in comparison with other common fish, like Peepers or Garryfish.


The Holefish is blue and purple on the head and tail, while the upper part of the body is brown with yellow vertical stripes ending in yellow dots. It has two eyes on either side with a light blue, bioluminescent iris and black pupils.

It has one hole in the tail that is as large as the eye. The head is shaped like an arrow, of which the tip is the mouth, and the top and bottom are the control fins.


The Holefish is very agile and evasive, often seen darting around cave systems' entrances alone or in shoals. It flees when approached by the player.
