Minecraft recently received an update that added general changes and fixed tons of issues.

The blue axolotls are pretty rare to find in-game, and if you want to have a bunch of them, you will have to produce them through breeding. Additionally, an issue where players attempting to walk through flowing water switches them from swimming into normal mode has been resolved.
