The Hoopfish is fairly easy to catch, as it doesn't retreat upon being approached by the player, and is easily recognized due to its bright bioluminescent glows.
The Hoopfish has a slim build, featuring a dark violet colored body that gradually transitions into blue towards the head, which has a bright neon green color. It has two green eyes, a small dorsal fin and a purple caudal fin that wraps around its end.
The Hoopfish's most distinct feature is the bright green bioluminescent antennae extending from the top and bottom of its head and bends around its tail forming a hoop.
The Hoopfish is a rather slow swimmer, and is mostly seen forming shoals in various biomes. It will try to flee if approached by the player.
