When does fish wake up?

Fish don’t have eyelids — they don’t need them underwater because dust can’t get in their eyes. But fish still sleep. Some sleep during the day and only wake up at night, while others sleep at night and are awake through the day (just like you and I).

Do you fish close their eyes when they sleep?

Unlike humans and several other mammals who settle in for a cozy night of rest, most of them remain in motion and don’t close their eyes. Actually, they can’t close their eyes because they lack eyelids. Some species continue to float along and will occasionally move a fin to keep oxygen flowing into their gills.

What do fish do when sleeping?

Signs that your fish are sleeping include:

  1. They remain motionless for periods of time.
  2. They lay on the bottom or an object in the aquarium.
  3. They don’t react to things going on around them.
  4. They exhibit this behavior at about the same time each day, usually when the aquarium light is turned off.
