Do goldfish sleep?

They must need to sleep but my fish never seem to sleep.

Contrary to popular belief, goldfish do experience a sleeping state, but they are typically in more of a resting state, aware of their surroundings. During this resting state a goldfish stays in a single location, near the bottom of the tank, which adds to the stability of the fish while "sleeping. "

All fish sleep, including goldfish. Though they may appear to be awake, and possibly may even move about the tank. Generally fish like it to be dark and quiet while they sleep, so it probably sleeps at night while you're sleeping as well.
