    I like the idea of leeches, but I would put forward a couple of slight changes in the suggested game mechanics:

    - they spawn in both swamps and rivers in clumps of 4-16 (or whatever)

    - they are like skinny black silverfish and sit on blocks at the bottom of the body of water; when you are within 3 blocks on the same Y, they will all release and swarm towards you.

    - they latch onto one location (arms x2, legs x2, back/torso) and can't latch on if there is another one there. (They just randomly swim around you waiting to get an opportunity to latch on.)

    - after X ticks they drain 1/2 heart and drop off.

    - X would depend on armor at that location.

    - If you have a potion effect, it ends when you take leech damage.

    - they all drop off whenever you take non-leech damage.

    - dropped leeches will become fat (like silverfish) and half speed. They will drop to the bottom of the water block and rest for X ticks until they become skinny again and ready to feed... perhaps this is a breeding cycle and that leech splits onto an adjacent source block when it becomes skinny.

    - they don't do well out of water and will just take damage/die when they drop off in air.
