From Zelda Wiki, the Zelda encyclopedia
Bio-electric Anemone: Barinade is the third boss in Ocarina of Time, residing Inside Jabu-Jabu's Belly. It is the guardian of the third Spiritual Stone, Zora's Sapphire.
At the start of the battle, Barinade is attached to the ceiling of the arena, sucking life energy from Lord Jabu-Jabu. It must be separated from the guardian deity by severing the three tentacles that attach Barinade to the ceiling, using the boomerang. While doing this, Link must watch out for Barinade's ability to shoot lightning from its other three tentacles.
Hit him with the boomerang
Once separated, Barinade is surrounded by a group of electrified jellyfish, preventing any direct attack on its soft body. Getting rid of them is Link's second task. This can be done with the boomerang when Barinade sends them out to attack. There is a total of ten jellyfish, separated in two groups of five; the first group attacks Link while Barinade is still static.
Once the first five jellyfish are gone, Barinade starts to spin wildly through the room and firing blasts of electricity at Link. At that time, the other five jellyfish rise and protect Barinade while it is spinning. Again, they can be destroyed with the boomerang to get a clear hit on Barinade's body. Once Barinade is exposed, Link can use the boomerang to stun him and then attack using the Kokiri Sword or Deku Sticks. After several strikes, Barinade falls (and blows up in a rather grotesque manner).
After getting rid of this foe, Link is rewarded with a Heart Container and the third Spiritual Stone.
