There are various species of Fish in Minecraft. Although they can survive without eating anything, they can still be treated with a few things. Let me explain it in detail.

Key Takeaways

  • There are at least four types of Fish in Minecraft. These can be used to decorate aquariums or as a good source of recovering health.
  • Moreover, fish can eat almost anything edible in the game. These may include fruits, vegetables, bread, and even meat.
  • Players can craft fishing rods using the Crafting table and use it to capture Fish.

Fish Food In Minecraft

Any edibles that ensure fish growth and survival in Minecraft are called fish food. Once you have captured some fish, you can arrange food to keep and breed them alive. Although, they can survive on their own without having to eat anything.

  • Fish usually eat feedings made of other Fish and other ingredients.
  • Additionally, Fish will eat anything dropped in their aquarium, e.g., pieces of bread, meat, fruits, or vegetables.
  • I found that Tropical Fish especially have cravings for beetroots and chorus fruit.

My Recommendation

I think feeding fish can be a good time pass, but thinking they rely on your food to survive might be a misconception. Although, you can use them to gain specific powers by feeding them with special items in your aquarium. Let me know if you want to learn how to do that and I will write another extensive guide on it.
