The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.

I have an idea to implement deadly sea life into minecraft that will make the game a bit harder but more rewarding, as well as drops that can be used for crafting.
Sharks: they are found in coral reefs, and vary in sizes. The smaller ones have lower HP and do less damage, but the bigger ones have more HP and do more damage. Killing them will can give you a drop of one, or a few, shark teeth and/or raw fish. Getting a tooth should give you an achievement called shark week. Sharks will attack swimming players and can even break boats from underneath the player.
Piranhas: these ones are found in big lakes and are fast, but moderately weak and have moderately low HP. They stick in packs of 5-8 (unlike real life where they stay in packs of about 1000) and are very hostile. Killing them drops scales.
Eel: these ones are found in coral reefs and are fast, have fairly good HP, but there attack damage is kind of in the middle. But, they do have a chance of giving you an effect upon attack called discharge which deals damage over time and slows you a bit. Killing them drops raw eel which you can cook to make eel.
Flippers: flippers can be crafted with scales. Put one scale in the middle bottom, and the rest on the [left side] top left and middle left, and [right side] top right and middle right. Wearing these will give you a generous speed boost while swimming.
Shark tooth sword: made with sticks and shark teeth. Put three sticks up against all the right crafting slots. (Top right, middle right, bottom right) And shark teeth to the right of all the sticks. (Top middle, middle of middle, and bottom middle) this will do as much as a stone sword with the durability of an iron sword, and be the fastest melee weapon in the game. Can be enchanted with sharpness, and knockback.
Eel meat: raw eel meat can poison you possibly, and will restore one hunger. Cooked eel will restore four hunger.
