Why is my ink farm not working? I recently made an ink farm in 1.13.2 in a small server with some friends. The farm itself is based off of ilmango's design and squid are capable of spawning, but spawns seem random. After about an 8 hour afk session I only have 51 ink.
All river/ocean biomes are drained within a 128 block radius of the farm and afk spot. Farm is entirely based in a river biome. Farm is located between y level 46-62. Afk spot is at y level 54, 24 blocks away from one side. 4-5 hours of the afk were done with me being the only one on the server. Then another ~5 hour afk session was done resulting in just over a stack of in. Not sure what I'm doing wrong. Reloaded my chunks using F3+A multiple times.

How big is the farm itself? My farm is 36 x 18 (not completely rectangular because river biome) and it will generate about 6 stacks in a 6 hour afk session. Also check your collection system. I had a problem with minecarts stopping or jumping tracks until I added a shutoff so they aren't running when I leave the area. This is especially important if your farm crosses chunk boundaries.
