Bacterial Sludge does not exist as an item, but can be collected the same way as water or lava by using an empty bucket: hold an empty bucket and right click on an oil source block to fill the bucket with oil. Liquid pumps from compatible mods may work too.
It generates in the giant underground caves in Mars and floods over almost the whole cavern floor.
Bacterial Sludge will spread on up to 2 blocks from the source block on a solid surface, shorter than lava outside the Nether. Like water, it can wash out plants and extinguish fire. It has no flowing current. Players immersed in it can see normally. It also emits a dim light.
Players can swim in it and can drown (as of Galacticraft version 184.108.40.206 and later). On the other hand, it lacks some other fluid-like properties: it does not affect mining speed. It will not put out fire either.
It is not possible to produce more Bacterial Sludge blocks by using the "infinite water" trick from the vanilla Minecraft, making it a non-renewable resource.
The Bacterial Sludge will generate Sludgelings, normally in small swarms, while a player, mob, entity or even a dropped item, touches it.
It has no crafting use, but it is possible to use it to create a Sludgeling XP farm.
