Fish Brain

When I go near the aquarium, the fishes that I am petsitting at the moment will swim towards me. When I put my hand above the aquarium, they will swim to the surface.

I think they know I am bringing them food. I wonder if fish has brain. I wonder if the fish can be conditioned like what Ivan Pavlov had done to his dog.

I like to play this trick with the fishies every morning, sometimes a few times in the morning, and I love watching them swimming so fast towards me. Early evening also works. I guess those are the time when they are hungry. So cute.

I am gonna miss them when they go home.

Fish do have brains. But for goldfish in particular, they have very short memory like Dory from Nemo. That's why goldfish are always hungry because they can't remember whether they have eaten or not.

Goldfish 1 bump into Goldfish 2
G1: Yo what's up?? What's your name?
G2: Yo, what's up?
G1: I am good.
G2: I am good.
G1: Yo what's up?? What's your name?
G2: Yo, what's up?
...........

Thank God that we're not goldfish in the tank.
