Chinese row over synchronized swimming goldfish

Yet another bizarre thing going on in China that we in the West had no idea about:  synchronized swimming goldfish. It's believed the trick is performed by using magnets and animal rights groups in China are up in arms, asking TV stations not the air the trick. The magician who performs the trick, Fu Yandong, denies he harms the fish. Mr Fu releases six goldfish into a tank and gets them to swim together.

"If I used magnets, the fish would stick together," he told a CCTV news.
"Some people say I use electricity or high technology. They can say what they want, but the fish are safe," he added.
