Fact of the Day: This Goldfish Got Memory


There's an urban legend that states that goldfish can only remember 5 seconds of time. However it's been proven that they can remember at least sounds for at least 5 months.

Aren't all fishes like that? My mom always get fishes as pets and they seem to always react when she's around and ignore anyone else.
