Unhappy A Worrying Question

I was just wondering if anyone had heard about automatic doors frying fishy brains?

I had an experience a couple of years ago involving goldfish, who died within 24 hours of being brought home. I had made sure to properly acclimate them to their new home, one died before supper, the other didn't make it through the night. Someone I talked to at the time said that the sensors they use for the automatic doors fry the little fishies brains.

Has anyone else heard of this? I'm going to pick up a new friend later this week, and the store only has an automatic door.

I've never heard of this. I think if this was the case, there would be a lot more fish deaths. My female Betta came from a pet store with 2 automatic doors (1 to get into the entryway and 1 to get into the store) and she's fine, I've had her since August.
