    A Three Second Memory? There is a common belief that fish only have a three second memory and that they cannot be trained to compete tricks, and this may be caused by the short lifespan of some species of fish, making testing for long term memory difficult (Reebs, 2008, p.1).

However, as a long time goldfish owner, I have witnessed my goldfish…

My roommate always complains that I need to stop sleeping during the day because…
