Are you sure you want to report this?

Minecraft has a lot of blocks, but what if they had more? Why do we need them? Please don't just add lists of things! Also, no furniture, guns, or vertical slabs.


You can put fish in fish bowls

    Mojang could allow us to place fish inside glass, instead of adding a bowl

    Maybe the bowl could be made using 3 glass blocks on the bottom of the Crafting Table and glass blocks on both of the sides in the middle. But you also have to change the water after 5 “Minecraft” days. But along with that, you have to feed them “Fish Flakes”, which is made by just shearing Seagrass. And not only that, but they can mimic the chest, so by putting two bowls beside each other you create a “Fish Tank”, which you can put 5 fish in but have to feed each fish.

    Even better, you could connect as many fish bowls as you like and get a really big fish tank

    Too many fishbowls could be a problem. How about up to four Fishbowls? Like for a Chinese Restaurant, which we can now of course decorate with all the new upgrades!

    Just plop some fish in a glass cauldron

    glass cauldron could be used for everything a regular cauldron can except that it’s also glass.

    glass cauldron.

    I really like this idea and think it would be even better if, when you placed two fish bowl together they merged to make one bigger one, like chests, but they keep going and get bigger so we can make large aquariums.

    I made a post recently requesting to add glass trapdoors for this exact purpose. I would love to see more interaction between the player and fish though, perhaps even fish breeding to get different colors and patterns in tropical fish... Still, I think fish bowls are a great idea to make fish even cooler to have around! I'd love to treat them like real fish, you know? +1

    Perhaps you could combine the bowls then it could turn into a giant fish tank. Perfect for more building ideas!

    Too modern and it would teach kids that fish bowls are a good idea, when in reality they're terrible for fish.

    Fish bowls/ fish tanks would be amazing in Minecraft!!

    This is a very good idea considering that the fish wont despawn also it would be very cool for decoration.

    I love the idea of connecting tanks to make the aquarium larger

    I have to agree with Trenix90. Fish bowls are terrible for fish. People would be surprised how much longer fish can live if they're properly looked after and given a better place to live than a fish bowl.

    My understanding is that fish bowls were originally just used for display and that fish were put back where they were properly kept after the display was over. At some point this was misunderstood and the bowls turned into the places where the fish were kept.

    I definitely like this idea, as it gives players a reason to want to get live fish. I've seen other comments on that you could increase the size of the tank by putting multiple tanks side by side, and I like that. As for the crafting recipe, it should be the same as a cauldron, except glass panes instead of iron. Reason for panes is so you use less glass. Also, the recipe should include a water bucket in the center, just so you don't have to worry about filling it yourself. You would, of course, get the empty bucket back

    I think that it should be 1 block by 2 blocks in size, (there aren't many Minecraft fish that would fit in a 1 by 1 block space), and to craft them,

    Wooden slabs in the bottom 3 slots

    A piece of sand in the middle

    A piece of Coral, Kelp, or Seagrass in the top middle slot that would appear in the fish tank as decoration

    Wooden slabs in the remaining top two slots

    And glass blocks in the remaining 2 slots.

    To put a fish inside the fish tank you need a fish bucket of the type of fish you want and use it on the fish tank which gives you the bucket back.
