Those were all great enjoyed reading them all. The only one I don't agree with is this one.

I've owned Goldfish and they remember what time they get fed everyday. They get excited and await there food the same time everyday. Thats memorizing what time you eat. Also, if you enter the room they remember thats when they get fed they start swimming to the top.. etc

The fact is, we don't know much about how fish think. We're learning everyday thou with science and observation.
