Like, is there a max size it can be so the fish wont despawn, assuming theyre named if that changes anything. I wanna build a humongous aquarium, like a 100x100, but Im in a cool ocean biome and want tropical fish in it, but dont wanna go through all the effort to have them despawn
If you're playing on Bedrock, then they will despawn but I dunno how far away that'll happen. If you're playing on Java, named mobs never despawn at all no matter where in the world they wander off to.
100x100 seems way too big! You will need to make sure the water source starts from the bottom up so you can plant seaweed (kelp). I learned that the hard way but on a small scale so it was easy to correct. I put about 50 fish in total in all the tanks and non have despawned so far. No nametags. Just caught via a bucket. Playing on survival on the xbox one so im sure Java Edition is the same.
Check out my aquarium based off Birch Aquarium in San Diego.

See my Minecraft world (100% Survival), Dirty Baker City here:
I’ve made a fairly large tank around a wooden staircase (not sure how to attach pictures) but all my fish are just resting against the floor of the tank can anyone help me out? Is it to do with overpopulation? I’ve already emptied the tank and refilled it to make sure there’s a water source on each block
I'd say put a few bits of soul sand as the aquarium floor as soul sand makes water bubble and rise so your fish may just float at the top instead of resting on the bottom, but you might be able to work around that like just putting a couple here and there just to send them to the top and float down another stream of water or something or other
