[@669203,EugenieLaBorgia] lol never considered they could be dead but still in them tank
[@384291,CreateTVT] I think in terms of algebraic equations. Some visualise.

[@669203,EugenieLaBorgia] but would a dead fish still be a fish? Like a tree dies and falls over it's a log then not a tree right? Eventually the fish will be food or bones rather it's a second after or a year after. Would the time difference matter?

10 most likely.If the dead fish aren't taken out,that is.

CreateTVT · 31-35, M
[@327737,Salix75] nowhere

[@341171,sighmeupforthat] I wondered the same thing. Some missing factors I believe.

6 just cause they drown or die doesn't mean anyone will scoop them out of the tank, and how did they swim away? Maybe jumped out and jumped into another tank????

7. Fish don't drown,do they? And where the hell will they swim? Surely they are in a tank?
sighmeupforthat · 41-45, M
[@467717,Gangstress] fish can drown.
Gangstress · 36-40, F
[@341171,sighmeupforthat] tf they are awful fish then. Refund lol
CreateTVT · 31-35, M
[@341171,sighmeupforthat] they can. Some come up for air and some get oxygen through there gills. If there is not enough oxygen in the water for there gills they drown.

10. Fish don't drown. And they would all be still in the tank after they die, no where to escape.
CreateTVT · 31-35, M
[@542305,Darkcosmos] they can drown I googled it. If there is not enough oxygen in water. But they would all drown if that's the case.
10 its a tank.so they cannot swim away & it does not say the dead ones were removed

[@306152,SexyLesGirl13] are dead fish still fish though
[@384291,CreateTVT] yes

How can fish swim away in a tank?
CreateTVT · 31-35, M
[@663939,JapSeyeKing] I figured they swam to the other side of the tank to escape the dead fish

[@384291,CreateTVT] I don’t know. It’s made me want to sleep. Too much for my little brain

[@663939,JapSeyeKing] lol
10 unless all those fish mentioned were removed and or out of the tank.. Then 1

How does a fish "drown"?

Where do they "swim away" to?
CreateTVT · 31-35, M
[@11432,Greenbare] not enough oxygen in the water to pass through their gills. And they can't if there in a tank.

[@200786,VioletShadows] that only equills 7 fish. But the tenth was never mentioned so maybe so. And I'm having a brain fart trying to spell equalls lol
