IF: Myth


My submission to Illustration' Friday's Myth.  I am new to this whole fish-keeping business and been told that fish only have memory that are in the seconds (3 -10?) and I don't think this is the case.  The fish I own definitely remember which corner I feed them from.  People also say that fish don;t have personalities.  Well and truly untrue....they just can't voice it like birds, fish and dogs or have any facial expression.  Hard without eyelids but you can tell a fish's personality by watching how they move.  Who is shy, a bully and gets a long with everyone.  Perhaps this is only in the case of guppies but I doubt it.  Then again...maybe I've just been watching my fish for too long...

I am worried I might be overfeeding them but at the same time I don't want them to starve...though I have researched and saw that it is better to underfeed rather than overfeed.  Perhaps I will get the swing of things once I have more of a routine.

I love watching them though.  It relaxes me.  I do get a tad anxious of the idea of seeing one of them floating belly up.
