If you’ve advanced far enough into Disney Dreamlight Valley, you’ll eventually find that Merlin will offer you the ability to craft unique potions that enhanced your various tools, allowing you to farm for resources more efficiently. Crafting these often require some rare resources themselves, though–one of which is Red Algae. If you’re wondering how to get your hands on this uncommon drop, we’ve got you covered here.

How to get Red Algae in Disney Dreamlight Valley

Red Algae is only obtainable while fishing. It’s an extremely rare drop that will pop out randomly after catching a fish, meaning you’ll need to pick it up off the ground afterward. The drop rate for this resource is lower than most other items in the game, so you’ll probably spend quite a while farming up enough of them to use in making potions.

Red Algae is only obtainable via fishing.

That being said, using a Miracle Fishing Bait can actually increase your chances of finding Red Algae, so when you use one to help you find some of the game’s rarer fish, you’ll likely also be able to restock on this precious item a little bit along the way. And don’t forget to bring a friend along with you who specializes in fishing to increase your chances even further.
