Visual Fish Buckets is a simple resource pack that uses Optifine's CIT features to give Tropical Fish Buckets unique textures based on the species of the fish in the bucket. This is done by assigning textures based on the NBT data of the fish bucket item. Each texture matches the appearance and colours of the actual tropical fish mob in order to make it easier to identify which bucket has what fish at first glance. This can be extremely helpful if you are a collector with many species of fish stored away.

This pack REQUIRES OptiFine 1.13 HD U E4 or newer in order to work.

Also, before anyone asks, I can't extend this pack to give regular Tropical Fish items unique textures as they don't store the mob variant nbt data.

Currently, the pack has unique textures for all 22 of the real-world fish species you can currently catch in minecraft, as well as a few of the randomly generated fish designs.


You can:
  • Use this pack on servers and letsplays.
  • Combine assets from this pack for use in server resource packs or personal mashup packs.

You can't:
  • Take assets from this pack and use them in another public resource pack of a similar nature.
  • Take assets from this pack and use them in a public mashup pack. (Doing so is unnecessary as resource packs are stackable).
  • Repost this pack elsewhere, with or without ad-revenue, without permission. (If you want to share it, just link to the curseforge page.)

Please ask for permission if you'd like to use the textures in a way that isn't outlined above.

I do plan on identifying more nbt tags for randomly generated fish, though it may take some time. If you happen to have any variant tags that produce interesting looking fish, feel free to post them in the comments. :)

Disclaimer: This pack does not contain modified ripped textures. The buckets and fish were repainted by hand in the style of default Minecraft.

"because im lazy" isn't a very good pitch when you're trying to get someone to do something for you. :P
I have no idea for texture pack
Looks very cool, but I'm using Optifine, i'm in 1.13.1, and the tropical fish bucekts are just having the default texture. Any ideas how to fix it?

Make sure custom item textures are enabled in your video settings. This also doesn't work for every possible tropical fish out there. Only the ones listed. It's going to take some time to make textures for the rest of them.

Really glad someone finally did this, it's a pain having to check which bucket you have with the tooltips so often. Keep up the good work.
This is game-changing! The day I learned you could catch fish with buckets, I was so disappointed because the fish always had a clownfish texture! Finally someone fixed this! TYSM!
Haven't seen anything from you in a while; I'm glad you're uploading again, and with a
nice resource pack to boot! I'm kind of surprised they hadn't already added this.

yeah I've been itching to get back into resource packing. 80% of my stuff relies on Optifine so I couldn't do much until it updated, so I've just been focusing on other stuff for the time being.
By the way, I'd like to ask: Will ItemBound be updated any further? The update logs on its PMC page say it hasn't been updated in nearly a year.

Yes. I haven't done much with it because I was waiting for Optifine to update. CIT still isn't 100% working yet.
There's now an Optifine version for 1.13.2. Do you know if its custom item textures work? Its changelog says it fixed something but I'm not sure if that fixes everything.

That's kind of unnecessary since people could just download this pack as well as yours' and then layer them together.

Do I have your permission to link this pack when I release my pack
