Dear RTR sir, with all due respect. I entirely understand the massive difference of what we see from the outside and what the fish could see from the inside could or would be entirely different. But though I have not tried it myself nor with the periscope, I still feel that they would see at least a faint reflection of themself from the glass. Especially when the background is darker or when the exterior light is dimmer than the tank. Similar to when we are walking in the mall, we would still see ourself against the shop glass.. Quite clearly at times..

Ok to settle this I will fill up one of my empty tanks on my kitchen floor and stick my head in. I will report my findings.

And i would really like to apologise if wat i said proof to be entirely wrong in advance!!! If u r really going to do that!!

And, u would need to put up some kind of lighting in the tank cos the theory is that if the background is darker, it would have a mirror effect. Faint at least. :D

I am so soorrryyy!!

If you have the means to try it you should. A very weird experience, tried with lights on and off. My wife thought I had lost it lol. No reflection whatsoever. Rtr is once again correct and I have a wet head

Thanks for checking that out :lol:

She was too busy calling me a nutter, I have to say science has never been so much fun. Like apple bobbing with no apples and me acting the goat.

I have my suspicions that bertie was doing it for fun :P

That being said, science thrives off of doubt. Doubt or questioning leads to further experimentation and learning. The knowledge gained from that can help the validity of our knowledge or let us know that something isn't quite right. It only leads to improved knowledge about a subject and I think RTR would appreciate that (or at least gets a chuckle at bertie's experiment ;) ).

Lol rtr will soon be putting his head in a tank to see how much fun it is. Also you are correct I thought it would be hilarious ( which it certainly was) science was just a bi-product of me being a little silly. I turn 29 on thurs and should really grow up a little, I however choose not to.

I may well do it again and film it so you guys can see me being an absolute idiot, all in the name of science ofcourse, the tank is sitting full of water on my kitchen floor cos I couldn't be assed to empty it, and my wife thinks I am to put a gold fish in it tomorrow lol, I love a good wind up like I would have a goldfish tank in the middle of my kitchen floor lmao
