Re: Sunday Times- Goldfish have feelings too #21

HOGWASH. My goldfish are as stupid as my cat.
My Cory cats, on the other hand, are the smartest bottom feeders that I have ever seen. >_>

I know we love the goldfish but im gonna stick up for the cats here.. My cat has to be one of the most intelligent animals i have ever owned. An animal who chooses to stay with you because its fed/watered and pampered but runs off if not, cant be all that stupid in my opinion. I know people who cant even get that right.

Re: Sunday Times- Goldfish have feelings too #25
people claiming fish are stupid need to look at another form of life on this earth to define the word stupidity.

Re: Sunday Times- Goldfish have feelings too #26
All of my pets have recognised my voice for the reason of FOOD lol yes we had guinea pigs that as soon as they heard my voice they would squeak like mad until i went to feed them lmao.

Me and my family used to laugh so much when i came home from work each night cos we kept them inside the house in our spare room downstairs, so yeah when i would get home and shout hello to everyone the guinea pigs would recognise my voice cos i used to always be bad and give them loads of treats .. so they would squeak like mad and then when i went in to the room and they saw me standing there omg! they would squeak even louder until they got their treat from me, it was so funny !!! I miss the we beggers lol.

But yeah i have now noticed the same with our fish, when i go near the bowl at first it will swim away and hide but as soon as i start talking to it it seems to recognise my voice and that its feeding time and then comes right up to the top of the bowl waiting for it pellets lol.

She is a very strong minded fish also :)

Re: Sunday Times- Goldfish have feelings too #27
My goldfish also knows my voice now, anyone can walk past his tank and he won't move, but as soon as I say, "You hungry then Fishy?" he comes straight to the front of the tank and swims back and forth until I feed him!! He's my lovely koi-koi!!

Re: Sunday Times- Goldfish have feelings too #28
all my tanganyikans rush to the top of the tank as soon as they hear or feel the vibrations of the fish tank cabinet door click open then they follow me round till i feed them.

Never seen anything like it before it just goes to show how people under estimate a fish's intelligence!

Re: Sunday Times- Goldfish have feelings too #29
They're certainly a lot sharper than most people think My blind goldie used to leap into action the second he heard/felt the cupboard door being opened - food was kept in the cupboard

I normally feed them before I go to work but the other day I left their food to soak and asked Mr S to feed them before he went to work. He did the special needs ward then said he could feel eyes on him. When he turned round the fish in the other tanks were lined up watching him. He didn't realise they hadn't been fed and looked back at them wondering what they were up to. The goldies looked back at him with increased vigour. He said that short of raising their eyebrows and pointing with their fins they couldn't have made it any clearer that the food was still soaking on top of the tank
