Set up a platform in crimson above ground (so many ground enemies don't hit you) and get a water candle. Minions may also help and just kill the enemies as they come. It may take awhile but it's how I farm. Sometimes I wait to drop off the platform after awhile to collect all the loot. Blood moon is also helpful when farming. Also place banners you get to kill the mobs faster.

Best way should be using a Arapaima farm.
Put a box above a large water surface, fill it waist high with water and get into it (so water enemies will swim towards you.

Now place biome specific blocks, to make artificial biomes. For the biomes you'll need:
Jungle - 80+ Lizhard or jungle grass blocks (always build this in for arapaimas to spawn and to increase spawn rate)
Snow - 300+ Ice blocks
Corruption - 200+ any corrupted blocks
Crimson - 200+ any crimson blocks
Hallow - 100+ any hallowed blocks
Purple/red/pink ice will count towards both ice and crim/corr/hall biome, also you can not combine hallow and corruption/crimson (they will cancel each other out!).
I usually combine 80+ Lizhard blocks with either 300+ pink ice blocks OR 200+ purple ice and 200+ red ice blocks.
Also place a water candle.

Now you only need a kill mechanism between you in your box and the original water surface, this can be lava carried by bubble blocks (party girl) or traps triggered by pressure plates/timers.

A pretty good video instruction would be this: (it's a bit older, but biome keys replace the molds now and drop under the same conditions)

Go to the ocean, make a farm and put some crimstone and make a jungle biome. If you have the picksaw break some lizard blocks from the temple and use that to make the jungle biome.
