Hello,

I was tinkering with an idea of making an aquarium in my home on Minecraft.  Filled with squids, of course.  My question is - can Squid spawn in 'unnatural' waters (I.E - created with buckets of water)?  If so, how deep/wide would this aquarium have to be?

Also, do minecart boosters no longer work?

Thanks.

Squids can spawn in "unatural" water, I don't know the size and boosters still work.

Boosters work.

Squid will spawn in water that is 3+ blocks deep, I believe. Not sure about how wide it would need to be, but if you're creating an aquarium I don't think you'll need to worry about that.

They spawn completely random. I put some water in the neather and two spawned in less then 2 blocks spread out on the floor.

can't control squid spawning.

Squids are bugged, I'm convinced. The only patch they worked on that I can remember was the original 1.2 patch. They spawned regularly in all bodies of water, just like how you see sheep and cows everywhere on grass, you'd see squids everywhere in water bodies. Since then, I think I haven't seen a single squid in any of my worlds. Maybe they still rarely spawn under certain conditions, but something is up.

I run a little private SMP server with my friends, and even though I'm heavily opposed to using the "give" command, I'm going to have to for black ink.

If there is no deep water for them to spawn in they will spawn in shallows.

I am on a map and have a shallow lake outside my house. No other water nearby. They spawn in there. It is somewhere around 3 or 4 deep at the deepest.

Best place for an aquarium: The Nether... For some reason I don't understand, they spawn everytime I make water (out of ice) in the nether. Took away the water, and now 15 squids are rolling on the floor

Works if you use water BLOCKS.
