      The bug

      If a dolphin / turtles / guardian / elder guardian / cod / salmon or pufferfish is outside of water they will not really try to get back into it.


      Version Edit-Comments
      18w19a / 18w19b The dolphins turn in circles and do not find the water.
      Dolphins just try to get into the water when they are right next to it.
      If the dolphins are a few blocks away from the water, they still not try to reach it and then die.
      since 18w20a Dolphins and fish jump on land and do not really try to get into the water.
      They jump around in the area more disoriented.
      Sometimes a dolphin / fish gets into the water by accident, but this is the exception at the moment.
      If you spawn a fish 1 block next to the water it dies in most of the cases.
      Dolphins bounce up and down like fish but should rather paddle like the turtles to the water.

      My Tests:

      I spawned each entity 5 blocks from a large water source and documented if they made it into the water within 15 seconds.

      I have tested this 10 times for each entity.

      Version: 18w43c

      Entity Found water - Tries Time
      Dolphin 3 / 10 15 seconds
      Turtle 3 / 10 15 seconds
      Guardian 4 / 10 15 seconds
      Elder Guardian 3 / 10 15 seconds
      Cod 0 / 10 15 seconds
      Salmon 1 / 10 15 seconds
      Pufferfish 1 / 10 15 seconds

      Cod / Salmon and Pufferfish die most times before they reach the water
