Goldfish Can Read!

Yes, I know we think that goldfish are stupid, but Dr Brown at Macquarie University has found that they can understand simple symbols and have a reasonable memory so that they were able to follow blue triangles or red spots in a maze to get to food. He makes a point now of moving things around in his fish tank and giving them new rocks and weeds - which apparently they love. If you have fish, give them a new rock or toy and watch them. If afterwards they get more active and look like they're exploring...then you know you've got clever fish!
