Other attributes

Silverfish are a hostile mob that can be encountered in Minecraft. They can be found in strongholds. They are found in stone blocks throughout the stronghold. Silverfish may hide in any type of stone except cobblestone.


Silverfish are found inside stone bricks in strongholds. They can be detected through testing if a stone brick breaks by hand in 3 seconds, including all tools. They are also found in spawners from Strongholds in the portal room.


Since they can also be found in a monster spawner inside the room with the End Portal, they can spawn in groups. Attacking one will cause all in the nearby area to attack the player. Indirect attacks such as TNT can help. Water may drown them as well.
