Axolotls are the newest aquatic mobs in Minecraft, and the adorable creatures have already become fan favorites. Here’s what Axolotls eat in Minecraft, and a guide on how to breed and tame them.
The vast landscape of Minecraft island has been ever-evolving. Players of the community have had enough experiences in their respective creations, where new updates have brought more fantasy and real-life elements together.
Mojang has been quite active in expanding Minecraft’s world from Bedrock to Dungeons, and eventually introducing its Cave and Cliffs expansion. However, the latter had added Axolotls to the game and gave players some interesting underwater creatures to interact with.
Axolotls are amphibians who are also tameable underwater mobs in lush caves. They are effective in helping players with aquatic combat. But here’s what they really eat to survive.
What do Axolotls eat in Minecraft
Axolotls are fascinating amphibians in Minecraft who usually feast on tropical fish or buckets of tropical fish. They were one of the mobs in the Caves and Cliffs expansion released in Summer 2021. Players can interact with them like any other mob in the game.
Tropical fish spawn underwater in warm, lukewarm, and deep lukewarm ocean biomes between Y=50 and Y=64 levels. They spawn in lush caves as well and you can find an Axolotl there too.
How to tame an Axolotl
Unlike most mobs in Minecraft, Axolotls do not need to be fed anything to be tamed. All you need to do is bring a bucket of water along, tap on the Axolotl, and it’s yours to keep.

You can place it down back again by replacing the water bucket containing it, the same way you picked it up. Axolotls aid players in a major way by supporting them as a pet, protecting them from pesky underwater creatures, and helping them with combat situations.
How to breed Axolotls in Minecraft
You can breed Axolotls in Minecraft by feeding them tropical fish. First, use a bucket or a lead to bring two Axolotls close to each other and feed them both tropical fish or a bucket of tropical fish.
A baby Axolotl spawns after the breeding is done, and its color resembles one of the parents. Interestingly, there’s a 1 in 200 chance of the baby turning out to be blue even if none of the parents is blue.

A baby Axolotls grows into an adult in 20 minutes. You can speed up this process by feeding it fish as each tropical fish cuts down the time by 10%. The baby Axolotl follows its parents until adulthood like several other animal mobs.
There is a wider range of creatures who roam the free land like horses and a bunch of player-base has just scratched the surface of the potential of their world. Nevertheless, Mojang is keeping Minecraft alive by strengthening its multiplayer base and offering regular updates.
