What are Glow Ink Sacs in Minecraft?


A Glow ink sac is an item that can be acquired from a glow squid upon its death. A glow squid is a unique variation of an ordinary squid. These squids glow when underwater, making them extremely attractive and beautiful to look at. They spawn in total darkness underwater in groups of 2-4. You can find these mobs in darker areas underwater.
