Best Answers

In order to stay at a healthy temperature, or obtain temperature homeostasis, the fish seek warmer or colder water. ... read more

No. Fish do not achieve homeostasis because they are generally cold blooded, so their body temperature is regulated by the temperature of the water. This is why for sick aquarium fish they are generally kept in a warmer “hospital tank”. read more

(as in keeping internal temperatures stable while outside temperaturess are changing) websites would be really helpful. Update: basically i need websites on fish homeostasis. read more

The gills help fish breathe more in hot conditions since when its hot the water has less oxygen and breathe less in the cold because cold water is oxygen rich. By changing how it breathes due to tempature, the fish maintains homeostasis (stable internal conditions), even with changes in its environment. read more
