Breeding Axolotl

Axolotls love Tropical Fish. You will be able to lure in axolotls by using a Bucket of Tropical Fish, from here you can feed one bucket to each of the soon-to-be parent Axolotls and they will be bred to create a baby Axolotl. With now having a new baby Axolotl, you will also get some experience points ranging from 1 and 7 points. Not to mention they make adorable sounds when you swim around them in water.

Axolotls also come in five different colors: pink, brown, gold, cyan and blue. Unfortunately, you aren’t able to mix colors like you can with Sheep in Minecraft. However, the single exception to this rule is if you get a rare blue Axolotl, which is a mutation that can come from any Axolotl at a 1/1200 chance.

The adult Axolotls can be bed every 5 minutes and it takes baby Axolotls 20 minutes to grow into full adults, but this can be reduced by 10% with every bucket of tropical fish you feed them. Feeding them 10 buckets in a row will fully grow them into an adult without any wait.
