Synchronised Goldfish Trick
More than 50 animal rights groups believe the performance could involve the use of magnets and therefore harm the fish. The magician Fu Yandong, denies he harms the fish on one of the biggest shows of the year, China Central Television’s New Year’s Eve special. Mr Fu takes six goldfish and releases them into a shallow tank. He somehow gets them to swim together. “If I used magnets, the fish would stick together,” he told a CCTV news programme. “Some people say I use electricity or high technology. They can say what they want, but the fish are safe,” he added. I don’t think that those fish are really swimming but there must be a good operator or mechanism underneath that tank.
