11/29/2005 Entry: "Goldfish - more interesting than I knew"

"Dr. Karl seconds that emotion, citing anecdotes of goldfish responding happily to their owner's faces, while hiding in their tiny castles when confronted with strangers. And while goldfish were domesticated in China roughly a thousand years ago, they still swim in schools, and thus have some learned social behavior.

"The MythBusters TV show taught some goldfish to swim through a maze, noting that their time got better on each successive run. And an interesting response to the AnswerBag Forum describes goldfish memory as 'selective' -- they have a general idea of what happened on a previous occasion, they're just not sure what. We empathize."

Why domesticate goldfish? Because they're pretty? Can you eat them? Hm.
