    Fishbowls

    Fishbowls is a lightweight plugin designed to add a small, decorative feature to Minecraft: Fishbowls!

    Usage is simple, with no complicated systems to understand. Fishbowls can be given using a simple command from either opped players or the console, and thus can be given by most rewards systems in other plugins.

    Command usage: /fishbowl <player> <#>


    Permissions:
    fishbowl.craft
    is the node required to craft fishbowls, and
    fishbowl.command is the permission required to use the /fishbowl <player> <#> command, to give random fishbowls. Please note that, for somewhat obvious trolling reasons, the <player> argument is ignored by the command if the sender is not an op, to prevent players from spamming each other with fishbowls. If the sender is not op, the fishbowl will automatically be given to the individual who executes the command, regardless of the <player> entered.​


    This command will give you a fishbowl that will contain a random fish upon placing it down. Simply place down the fishbowl object, and you have your very own fishbowl to watch!

    Fishbowls are also craftable! The recipe is one fish (of the type that you want in your tank), one piece of normal glass, and one bucket of water, in any shape. This will give you a fishbowl of that particular fish's type.

    Each fishbowl has a fish type (random, if given by command, or pre-determined if crafted), and the fish will shift around in the tanks, blow bubbles, and look around. Some types of fish may behave slightly differently than others, and more fish behaviors are planned.

    Want to get rid of a fishbowl? Just break the glass, and the fishbowl will remove itself! There is currently no way to move a fishbowl, due to the complications with the armor stands used to create them, but this is a (hopefully) planned feature.

    No permissions are required, and no configuration is needed. Just drop the jar in, and enjoy a small aesthetic feature!

    Have a bug to report or comment? Send me a PM or comment it below (The reviews section is for reviews of the plugin, not bug reporting! Please don't give terrible reviews just because you find a bug!) This plugin is a work-in-progress, and I'm making it publicly available just to allow people to see what armor stand manipulation has to offer for aesthetics, not because this plugin is a huge leap forward :p

    Great plugin, but there is a problem that is not very satisfied. If you remove it with the command "/ / set 0" , the fish will remain. It also works with dynamite. Can you put that away, please ?

    Love the plugin! But you should definitely add a way for more than one fish in a bowl; or a way to connect them and fish can swim between bowls!

      Whilst this would be absolutely amazing, the amount of effort needed to make that happen would be pretty huge... Perhaps at some point when I have the time to do it right. I'm glad you like the plugin, though :)

    it would be very cool if you can make multiple fish and make them swim around. ;)

    Hi, this is a lovely plugin. But I met some problem..
    After I put fishbowl(using OP) and someone(no permission) break it,
    the glass had broken but the fish still at there.
    The fish without glass just stuck in the air

    and no one can remove the fish LOL

    any suggestion?

    a good plug in to add something diffrent to minecraft which my players love.

    But something i have discovered is that this fishbowl plugin works well with another plugin by this author, the steam bath plugin. So you can still have you hot tub regening your health but use the fish bowl in place of the glass and you can now have fish in your hot tub as well.

    mabe when you look in to adding the large astual water enclosed tank you are planing hopefuly it will work the the steam bath plug in so you can have large fish tank/hot tubs

      Thanks for the review! This is a good plugin combination, I agree. I've been working on the AI for the in-tank fish, and we're making progress. I'm hoping to be able to release an update to allow for them soon :)

    A very cool looking fish tank, but you should add options like for it to just be a fish swimming around in a bigger fish tank with water. You should also make it so the fish aren't sideways all the time :)

      One of the hopeful planned features is adding large, actual-water glass-enclosed tanks, where you can just dump swimming fish into a larger tank. More fish behavior is planned, so that they would spend less time sitting sideways and more time looking alive :) Thank for the feedback!
