Plants[edit]

Plant Leaves[edit]

Aquaria PlantLeaves.png

Plant leaves are by far the item in most demand throughout the game, as it is used in creating multiple types of healing items. Luckily, they are also found in a fair amount of abundance, though never as much as you might like.

Where to find:

  • Yanking up the plants in the ground with Bind will give you this items at random.
  • The fire-breathing seadragons in the Kelp Forest usually drop three when you kill them.
  • If you enter Mithalas by the transport plant, the jars there hold two or three.
  • Just outside the Sunken City entrance is a box containing three leaves.
  • If you use the transport plant in Naija's home, you can Bind some of the plants there (if you have the Seed Bag) and they usually have leaves/poultices.
  • Mermogs and Poison Mermogs sometimes drop them.

Red Berries[edit]

Aquaria RedBerries.png

Berries can flavor your ice cream and make a veggie cake to a special cake. Otherwise they are used for some special recipes like the Vulcano Roll or Hot Borscht.

Where to find:

  • Yanking up the plants in the ground with Bind will give you this items at random.
  • The best place to find the plants is the Kelp Forest and inside Naija's home if you have the Seed Bag.
  • There's also a single plant literally right outside of Naija's home. Pull it up, return back to her home to respawn, come back out and etcetera.

Green Bulbs[edit]

They can be used for veggie soup instead of leaves.

Where to find:

  • Yanking up the plants in the ground with Bind will give you this item at random.
  • The best place to find the plants is the Kelp Forest and inside Naija's home if you have the Seed Bag.

  • Also used with Perogy to make Plump Perogy.

Where to find

  • Yanking up the plants in the ground with Bind will give you this items at random but rarely.
  • Yanking up plants above the Fish Cave will frequently give you mushrooms
  • In the Sunken City, next to a save point there is a crate you can destroy that holds two of these.

Rainbow Mushrooms[edit]

Aquaria rainbow-mushrooms.png

If a recipe calls for a generic mushroom, this will do... but it's more fun to put one of these in soup to make some interesting drugs.

Where to find:

  • There's a house in Mithalas nearby the entrance to the Mithalas Cathedral that holds three jars, each containing one Rainbow Mushroom. These will respawn every time you leave the town map and return to it.
  • Random jars in Mithalas may also hold these.

Red Bulbs[edit]

Aquaria RedBulbs.png

Used in making Cold Borscht, Hot Borscht and the Volcano roll. These seem to only be available from song plants, so there is a finite number in the game.

Where to find:

  • A glowing plant in Kelp Forest (above the cave with the Nymphs) has two of them.
  • Another glowing plant in Kelp Forest (after a fish tunnel behind the fish with the worm in it who drops the buttery sealoaf) has two of them.
  • A third glowing plant in Home Waters, up and left from home, has two of them.

Special Bulbs[edit]

Aquaria SpecialBulbs.png

Used in making Arcane Poultices, which give full healing.

Where to find:

  • Dropped by the Mermog boss.
  • In a secret up high room by the Sun Temple Boss. It's the right one, and it's a song plant on top so you can get one only once.
  • In the part of the Open Waters that is connected to both the Kelp Forest and The Veil, in a passage you can only enter in Spirit form there is a song plant holding one of these.
  • Sea Dragons drop Special Bulbs about 10% of the time.

Oils[edit]

Jelly Oil[edit]

Aquaria JellyOil.png

Jelly oil is also in high demand, as it can turn leaf poultices into healing poultices. Also useful for a couple of other recipes, including ice cream. You can never have enough jelly oil.

Where to find:

  • There are jellyfish all over The Veil, although you want the blue ones and not the yellow.
  • There are two or three in Nautilus Prime's chamber, just exit to Naija's home and re-enter to respawn them.
  • Also on the path to Blaster Peg Prime's chamber are a few of the blue jellyfish.
  • There is also a single one literally right outside of Naija's home. Kill it, collect, go back into her home to respawn the jellyfish, etcetera.
  • The yellow jellyfish found in the Ice Veil also drop jelly oil frequently.
  • The cave in the Abyss, near to where you fought the Jellyfish boss, is well-stocked with deepwater Jellyfish with a good drop rate of Jelly oil.

Fish Oil[edit]

Aquaria FishOil.png

Fish oil is the most plentiful form of oil. Used to make soup, buttery sea loaves, and as a part of a number of other recipes. It's used often enough that you'll likely run out, despite its plentiful nature.

Where to find:

  • Same as fish meat, just shoot energy bolts into schools of fish. You'll build them up in no time. There are many schools near Naija's home and in The Veil.

Eel Oil[edit]

Aquaria EelOil.png

Where to find:

  • A bit harder, there are 2 eels on the eastern side of The Veil and two or three on the west. It's a slow process to find them. The fastest choice is to shot the two eels outisde of Naija's home cave (where the big grey fish is) and they drop it from time to time.
  • Another location to find these wonderful oils is inside Mithalas City. The eels that inhabit some of the broken buildings have a chance to drop these.
    • It's also been found that when you see an eel, immediately stop moving and start to sing. Make sure not to sing just one note but you have to change notes quickly. This will result in the eel swimming over to you and it will swim in a circle around you. After it circles you a few times it drops an eel oil. In this fashion, 2-3 eel oils can be acquired at a time.

Meat[edit]

Fish Meat[edit]

Aquaria FishMeat.png

Fish meat is pretty generic meat, and found in abundance almost everywhere. Mostly used to make rolls and soup.

Where to find:

Where to find:

  • The easiest place is in The Veil, on the far eastern side. Swim through a small cavern on the eastern wall, then walljump up an entire canyon to find a single Rukh there. Attack it until it drops its egg, then jump into the nest (try not to jump OVER it and back into the water) and you'll have your well-earned egg.
