    The Guide above is a perfect way to get the achievement, however there is another way to get this achievement without Water breathing potions. All you'll need is one solid block and a bubble column.

    First, you'll need to go to a Deep Ocean Biome, which in the new update is usually where Elder Guardian Monuments spawn. Once you arrive you'll begin to come across Ravines that have these huge bubble columns sticking out of them, getting in the flow of the bubbles will replenish your oxygen gauge to full.

    Once you found the bubble columns, jump inside and this will take you to the bottom of the ravine, this is where you'll place a solid block right next to the column and get to the very edge of the block till you are in the bubble column receiving oxygen.


    Another way to achieve this is to build a conduit.
    To build the conduit, you must find a “Heart of the sea”.
    A Heart of the Sea is obtained from a buried treasure. The location is marked on a buried treasure map, which is found in ocean ruins and shipwrecks.

    Once you find one, you’ll need 8 nautilus shells to complete the conduit. These can be found via fishing, Mobs, and trading(I’d advise mobs as it has a higher chance over fishing and trading takes five emeralds, unless you have the hero of the village buff.)

    To activate, a conduit needs to be in the center of a 3×3×3 volume of water (source blocks, flowing water, and/or waterlogged blocks), which itself must be enclosed within an activation frame. The frame is built out of blocks in three 5×5 open squares centered on the conduit, one around each axis. Only prismarine, dark prismarine, prismarine bricks, and sea lantern blocks in the frame contribute to activation. A minimum of 16 blocks are required and produce an effective range of 32 blocks.

    Here is a link to the page about the conduit on the Minecraft wiki if you want a more in-depth look.

    All you do then is sit and wait for it to pop. Hopes this helps! Any questions? Comment below.

    So First off this achievement has to be done in ONE sitting, it is not cumulative.
    I'm gonna assume everyone knows how to play Minecraft by this point so i'm gonna skip some of the basics.

    You're going to need the following....
    1. Potion Stand
    3. Glass bottles filled with water
    1. Blaze powder
    1. Nether wart
    1.Puffer fish
    1. redstone

    so you're going to be adding the nether wart and puffer fish together to make a Water Breathing potion (3:00)
    Then you will add the red stone to the brew to make Water Breathing Potion (8:00)

    With 3 Water breathing potions that will last 24 minutes. A Day/Night cycle lasts 20 minutes so as long as you drink one potion after the previous has expired you will be golden.
    If anyone has any questions fire away in the comments below.

    *Credits for this solution goes to Paper Sharks, he basically told me how to get the achievement*

    MakkerThat solitary down-vote is probably someone who wanted a glitch, bug, exploit or some such thing and was outraged by your legit, genuine and totally within the game's mechanics solution laugh

    ZttackFrmBhindI have tried this twice now and I don't know if I've been doing something wrong. The first time I just used the potions and swam around in the ocean, and the second time I used the first potion directly before dawn and then used three more potions after that one. Could it be that when you mine underwater and the source blocks spill into the space that could affect the achievement?

    Paul Laserbeam@ZttackFrmBhind I'm afraid I do not know why you haven't gotten your achievement, but I can offer you some advice. There is an achievement for building a conduit, Conduits allow you to breathe underwater indefinitely, so I would recommend building one of those for your achievement and then just hang out underwater for the 20 minutes and you can get "Sleep with the fishes" that way.

    Putting the difficulty at Peaceful insures you cannot die underwater. Unlocked for me that way.
