Blue Axolotl Easy Breeding Guide (Fastest Method)

Blue Axolotl Easy Breeding Guide (Fastest Method)

Minecraft is a challenging game to master. Mainly because of the insane amount of mechanics and item properties that come into play. Therefore, keeping track and learning everything can take significant time. 

While there are way faster methods that you can use to spawn a Blue Axolotl, like using the command /summon axolotl ~ ~ ~ minecraft:entity_born, you might still be stuck with the breeding option, nevertheless. 

This becomes unavoidable when you want to spawn a Blue Axolotl and cannot have cheats turned on in the game (which means you can’t use the command method).

The fastest and easiest method of breeding pairs of Axolotls in Minecraft is by feeding them a bucket of tropical fish to spawn baby Axolotls. However, the parents cannot be bred again for five minutes. 


Therefore, you must gather many Axolotls and create a harem to increase your chances of spawning a Blue Axolotl fast.

That said, creatures in Minecraft are no different as you have to get to know them, just like every other thing in the game.

Blue Axolotls, easily one of the rarest creatures in Minecraft, are hard to come by. We won’t be wrong even if we say it is nearly impossible to spawn one naturally. The spawn ratio of a Blue Aloxotl is about one individual in every 1200 births.

Before we start breeding Axolotls, here are a few things you should remember while producing baby Axolotls in Minecraft.

Tropical Fish

If you are running about an Axolotl with a single Tropical Fish in hand and see that it is not attracted to the fish, you should know that they are only attracted to a “Bucket” of tropical fish. 


So, a single fish is just not going to cut it.


Axolotls love dark places near or under the water. Therefore, if you are building a Harem, set up a healthy environment for your Axolotls.

Cool Down Period

A pair of Axolotls cannot breed again until 5 minutes after a recent birth. Speaking of which, baby Axolotls take 10-20 minutes to grow into adults. 

TIP: You can always feed them more tropical fish to speed up their growth.

Spawning A Blue Axolotl Via Breeding (Fastest Method)

Breeding Axolotls is easy; however, when discussing the Blue Axolotls specifically, you might have to trouble yourself slightly.

Although, keep in mind that it might be near impossible to spawn a Blue Axolotl on the first try. So, you’ll have to be patient and keep trying since they are the rarest color of Axolotls to spawn.

Here’s the fastest method that you can use to spawn a Blue Axolotl by breeding Adult Axolotls in Minecraft.

  1. Gather a pair of Axolotls to eventually form a large harem (the more Axolotls you have, the faster you will get a Blue Axolotl.)
  2. Collect a lot of Buckets full of Tropical Fish relative to the pairs of Axolotls you have in the Harem.
  3. Stay before the Axolotls and feed them a bucket of tropical fish to get them to love mode.
  4. Once the Axolotls are in love mode, they breed and produce baby Axolotls. If you are lucky, you will get a blue Axolotl from the multiple pairs you have bred.

Is There A Specific Color Breeding Process To Produce Blue Axolotls?

The colors of the parent Axolotls do not affect the spawn of a Blue Axolotl as most babies will adopt the characteristics of the parents, and there’s only one in 1200 chance that the spawn will be a Blue Axolotl.
