Default How do Fish react to mirrors?

I'm helping my kid with her science fair project. She's picked a project on "how fish react to mirrors". Do you have any information that we could include in her report? We went to a fish store and looked at different kinds of fish, observing their behaviour. There was ony one we found that actually reacted to a mirror. This was the Beta fish. Do you have any more infomration on this topic or tips - I need to finish this isn a very short period of time!

Lightbulb That's an interesting project

One of our visitors tried it 2 years ago and had no results as well. Seems like fish really don't respond to mirrors. Nonetheless make sure you record your observations in detail, to disprove the hypothesis.

Remember, science projects are not about getting the "right" answer. It's all about going through the correct process, to make sure that your observations are unbiased (objective - not based on emotion etc.)
