I knew all of the things up there except the talking one. I wonder where they got that information from.

Except for vocalizing, which goldfish don't appear to do, goldfish excel most fish in the abilities listed here.

 

Goldfish can distinguish colors and shapes, can learn words, recognize people by their appearance and voices.  Animal behaviorists who study them say their cognitive ability is similar to small rodents.  However, they find it more difficult to test since fish live in a world so different for ours.  Thus we have less knowledge of fish abilities.

 

Goldfish can certainly remember how to run a maze for many times longer than a month.
