Game Details for Inside the Belly
Client: Zaldon (Fishermen's Guild Salesroom, Selbina)

Summary: Some fish in Vana'diel like to eat shiny objects. If you catch one, let Zaldon cut it open for you.
Walkthrough for Inside the Belly
Requirements: The previous quest in this quest line, The Real Gift, must be completed. Novice fishing skill (minimum fishing level of 28) is also required.
  1. Talk to Zaldon to start the quest. He will tell you to bring fish, that he can cut open and sometimes find something inside.
  2. Obtain one of the fish listed, either via fishing it up yourself or from another player. While Zaldon suggests certain fish, based on your fishing skill level, you can turn any of them in at any time. At fishing skill level 30, Zaldon suggests that you bring him either a Dark Bass, Giant Catfish, Ogre Eel, or Zalmfug Bass; as your skill increases, he suggests more advanced fish.
  3. Trade the fish to Zaldon, to complete the quest and obtain either a gil reward, or occasionally an item. It is entirely random whether you recieve gil or an item as the reward; the vast majority of the time gil is obtained, with an item obtained roughly 1 out of every 50 times a fish is turned in, on average. (Again, this is random; sometimes well over a hundred fish can be turned in without getting an item reward, and other times you get two in a row.) The amount of gil rewarded is generally less than if the fish were sold to Fishing Guild Merchants; this quest is normally done to try to obtain the possible item reward.
Repeating the Quest: This quest can be repeated by turning in any of the fish, at any time; zoning is not required.

Recommended Level for Inside the Belly
Given the prerequisite quests and required fishing skill, character level 30+ is generally necessary to do this quest. A character will need to be much higher level, to safely fish up some of the possible fish that can be used in the quest.
