Like many others I'm not sure what to believe when it comes to fish dreaming. My guess would be no due to the many reasons that've already been posted by others.

I'm guessing they don't dream.

As stated before, it would be bad for survival, and whenever my Betta sleeps if anyone comes near his tank he'll instantly respond and start swimming.

i think they may experience almost a day dream kind of thing while resting. but like what was said, they can't be completely out of it since they are always protecting their territory.

No - fish dont simply have the brainpower. A fish's mind is VERY simple and VERY small compaired to the human mind. Dreams require imagination. Our minds subconsciously create an environment (places, cities, etc) and objects so complex and thorough that we actually believe they are real when we are in our dream. I dont think a fish's mind is capable of that. Perhaps other mammalian animals can dream (primates for example), but not fish.

Thats an awsome movie!!!! I agree with what you are saying, but I did hear somewhere that a goldfish haves a three second memory span. Being that are dreams take place in our subconscious mind I too agree they do not have imagination but if they did dream it is from memory im gonna google it lol
