Colored Squids Add-on (1.8+)

This add-on adds 5 more squid colors, different from the ones already in the game. Need Colorful Dyes? Dive into the ocean, kill these squid, and get the dyes. Creator: Jean Lucas, YouTube Channel, Twitter Account

How does it work?

Squids are oceanic animals that drop colorful dyes. If you need dyes, and live near an ocean, it is only you go swimming in the ocean, you will find squids of different colors.


  • Spawns naturally in ocean biomes
  • 5 color variants (Orange, pink, brown, gray, and black)
  • 2 size variants (Baby and adult)
  • Health: 10
  • Drops: 1 to 3 dyes

Seems better than the new actual squid added in 1.17... would be happy to download if you update it.

does this work on 1.14 and above?
Omg I loveeee this mod, did you create the corlorful chickens mod? That was cool too. Anyways i have a suggestion, can you make a colorful wolves one? I mean it would be nice to have like Dirt wolves, ender wolves, cloud wolves, diamond wolves and l those cool wolf looks. Thankyou! I really enjoyed this mod since Im doing a mcpe series called Animania which is all about animals and I needed more fantasy type mobs tysm!
Thanks for the suggestion. I'm working with an add-on of tameable wolves.
I would LOVE to see new chicken colors. Just white is so not realistic. And chickens are real things.
Thank you very much for the idea. In the future I'll be posting an Add-on of Chickens of other colors!
Thank you very much for evaluate, I'm very happy to hear that you liked it. Leave animal suggestions that already exist in the game, but you wanted that were added other colors of these animals.
I love this, it's great as a concept and makes really easy and fun to get dyes that aren't obtainable on near ocean biomes.
