idk, i had two platys i bought at the same time. they were kept in seperate tanks at the store. once they were acclimated to my tank, i added them in togeher (for the first time).Jfl0 said:There was a study done on a Betta fish whereby it was given prozac. Yes, they gave a fish an anti-depressant. It seemed to be less aggressive towards other fish.
As for the original question, science is attempting to answer this question, but to my understanding no. They may behave in certain patterns but I do not think that fish are capable of emotions, let alone recognizing a dead tank mate from food.
Same, I had one of my guppys die from dropsy. The one he always hanged out with was sad and didnt eat and just did nothing. I Told my mom i need to get more guppys or he would die (kinda like a joke of he would die from loneliness) Yea she said no more fish and he died a week later from nothing....but loneliness.lilabug4545 said:I have to say, maybe. I once rescued two goldies, and one passed away around 8 months later. The other started acting lethargic and wouldn't eat. We got another goldie and the guy in the tank immediately became active again, and started eating.
Very true we do know that fish have the feeling of being stressed because it is very visible. They dont hear us but can feel the vibrations. (So dont have loud music by the fish....)Gypsy13 said:Well my fish have feelings. If they didn’t nothing would ever stress them out. Luckily mine don’t get stressed often. Plus they love me. They all come swimming to me as soon as they hear my voice. (Could be the food). They just all love me so much!
