Gummi catfish are a fully aquatic species who are composed of various types of candy imitating the appearance of various types of sea life.


Gummi catfish originate deep in the oceans of morbit and have been traced to an unknown zone near the luxson cluster. Their creator god's identity is currently unknown.


Found almost exclusively in the seas around the Luxson Cluster, though some have managed to immigrate to other oceanic zones, and some terrestrial ones.

Over-development of candy shell is frequent in sickly gummi catfish, which while completely harmless towards their long-term health, can be irritating and considered a cosmetic defect.

Another condition possibly afflicting gummi catfish is sugar barnacles latching onto their bodies, sapping their energy in small amounts.

Due to their relatively weak bodies and lack of natural defenses (aside from sharp teeth), gummi catfish have adapted by living around stronger members of other sapient species willing to protect them from predatory species and fauna and picking up weaponry when exploring the open ocean.

Some gummi catfish choose to live on land in the Luxson Cluster itself, capable of breathing air just as much as any other terrestrial species- but they do need regular access to seawater to stay healthy!


Gummi catfish and round, gummy-like shapes.

Markings are rare, but gummi catfish who have them find them to be akin to poured gummy gradients, similar to two-tone gummi worms.

Their voices are composed of garbled, high pitched babbles.

They have long arms ending in large paws.

Gummi catfish have paw pads.

Their tails are typically fin-shaped.

They do not naturally have hair, but some will get transplants or wear a wig.

Gummi catfish do not have legs and are mermaid-like in body plan.


Gummi catfish have no skeletons, muscles, nerves, organs, or blood and consist wholly of a solid gummi material.

Hard candy shells can sometimes grow on top of the gummi catfish skin, and can be removed to no adverse effects.

Candy “pearls” can also grow within the gummi catfish and can be safely removed, with any empty space left behind filling in within a few weeks.

They have sharp teeth that assist them in their sugar-based diet.

Gummi catfish have average energy levels.

Gummi catfish often dart around in the water to express emotion, using full-body gestures, particularly with their paws, to emote.

They have solid, cat-like ears.

They have black eyes.

Gummi catfish have a sugar-coated gummi texture to their skin which does not dissolve in water.

Prone to playing with trinkets and baubles floating by, easily distracted- sometimes leaving them prone to attacks from more predatory species, both fauna and sapient.

Life Cycle/Family Structure

Gummi catfish reproduce sexually and have minimal sexual dimorphism.

Gummi catfish lay eggs in clutches of 3-5, and refer to their children as gummi guppies. Gummi guppies are kept close to their parents if possible, watching for potential sea predators. They are particularly vulnerable in this stage of their lives and prone to injury, easily bitten or cut into.

Gummi catfish live in family groups referred to as “schools”, with groups of parents taking care of their young together, alongside with family friends, and community members. Schools typically consist of 2-3 family groups, along with a handful of family friends/community members.

Gummi catfish value casual relationships more than committed relationships, partially due to the fact that their lives are so commonly at risk, to lose a casual partner to a predator is potentially less devastating than a committed one in some gummi catfishes’ eyes.

A gummi catfish leaving a school is often considered a cause for worry due to the dangers of the open ocean, and is best considered when there’s a solid plan on the table.


Gummi catfish morphs are inspired by different types of gummy candy and aquatic life.

Mixed morph children often have candy traits mixed from their parents, such as a sour stinger’s tentacles or a peppermint patty’s thick, stubby fins.

The first morph created by their currently unknown god was the tasty treat morph.

Gummi catfish do not often have hybrid children with other species, but in the rare occasion that they do occur, some amount of their anatomy typically manifests as gummy candy, something that can lead to illness or death.

Common horror mutations that gummi catfish experience include; size increase, hunger increase, teeth growth, excess pearl/shell growth, carnivorous diet, bioluminescence, candy toxicity, claw growth, mood instability


Tasty Treat

The tasty treat morph is based on various gummies and sharks. They have a large caudal fin, large paws, and sharp teeth.

The ??? variant is based on whalesharks and candy dots.

Sour Stinger

The sour stinger morph is based on sour belts and jellyfish. They have a bell-shaped head, large paws, a long thin body, and sour belt tentacles that extend from under their bell.

Peppermint Patty

The peppermint patty morph is based on spearmint leaf gummies and sunfish. They have thick, stout bodies, small, ribbed fins, and thick paws.

Mini Morsel

The mini morsel morph is based on gummies and remora. They have creme gummi on their top half, smaller paws, and a small caudal fin. They average at a small size compared to other morphs.

Chewy Chunk

The chewy chunk morph is based on gummies and whales. They have very large paws, small ears, and a large caudal fin. They average at a very large size compared to other morphs.
