Another more difficult but even more fascinating addition could be dinoflagellates or bioluminescent bays. Dinoflagellates are tiny microorganisms that glow when moved, creating an effect of magical water. The creatures require very specific conditions to survive, which makes the majesty of biobays extremely rare (about 5 exist worldwide and some are almost dead). I think it would be a great way to advocate for this dying ecosystem by making a mangrove forest variant that has water that glows at night. Biobays glow brighter when the moon is smaller so you could add a mechanism that allows for a brighter glow, similar to the way the slime spawns in swamps. I know that Mojang enjoys putting these wonky and endangered creatures and ecosystems to Minecraft (just look at the axolotls lol i love them so much) so I really hope you take my ideas into consideration. <3
