It might be because Guardians tend to drop to the sea-bed when in neutral, you can certainly sometimes see some amongst the pillars, but they swam there from spawning elsewhere, they didnt actually spawn there ...
I'd really like to know the exact spawning area of them - especially before I encase it in about 10,000 glass.

Context: It's an SMP, I started playing it about a week ago; I have the "basics" ie God-armour/sword/bow/gear; mostly using a skelly spawner -> bones -> fast bonemeal farm -> carrot/potato -> villager;
I bred vills and got mending and other good things; I made a small slime farm, a sheep farm, got a beacon for insta-mining, etc.
Found moosh island. Killed dragon, got elytra.
So...you know...The usual first-week stuff.
