Q. Can a goldfish swim in outer space?A. Chris - I think the water would fragment wouldnít it,
How about if the fish was in a sealed system such that the water couldn't leak or splash out?I reckon the fish would have no real problems swimming forwards/left/right, but it might initially have a problem going up and down. On Earth fish do that by using their swim bladder to alter their overall density and thus sink or float. In zero/micro gravity that wouldn't work, so they wouldn't go up or down (relative to the fishes orientation). You'd probably end up with a confused fish.
