They have a tiny functioning brain. We dissected fish in zoology.

They do have brains. If they don't, then how would they know how to remember (even though I heard they have a 5 sec. memory span)

They have to have brains, no matter how small they might be. Even among tinier creatures that have something like a cluster of neurons that fire, you might be able to call it a "brain". Goldfish are fish; all fish have brains.

do gold fish have brains? - Do you think goldfish have brains
Yes I think goldfish have brains. The brain tells the heart to beat. the lungs to breath and the body when to eat. It also tells the fins how to move and when. I don't think the goldfish has a thinking brain as we do or as other animals do.
