If a fish is acting lethargic than you should do a large 50-75% water change pronto. Also, try using an aerator in the tank to try to raise the dissolved oxygen levels.
It originated from when two men were having a shooting contest. They each said what each other had to shoot. Number 1 said to shoot a bird in a tree and Number 2 said to shoot… a fish in a barrel- thinking that it would be very hard. Apparently- shooting fish in a barrel was incredibly easy! This was because the vibration of the water ,once it was shot ,was enough to kill the fish in it! EG: Doing a somersault is like shooting fish in a barrel. It means that something is very easy! While the above answer may be possible, it seems a bit unlikely to me. Prior to the days of refrigeration, fish were packed and stored in large barrels. The barrels were packed to the rim full of fish. As such, any shot the entered the barrel would be guaranteed to hit at least one of them. This being the case, nothing would be easier than shooting fish in a barrel.
It means to swim really well....just like a fish . so if someone asks you to swim like a fish than you should swim really well .

Baby fish are called 'fry', and in their early stages look and swim very much like tadpoles. They are capable of swimming in a straight lines but only do this in small, short …bursts. Don't mistake them for mosquito larvae, which "wiggle" or curl and uncurl rapidly as they swim.
This term means that you are a good swimmer, fish can stride through the water and therfore the swimmer is good.

If you do not own a specific type of catfish that swims upside-down, then your fish has a problem with it's swim bladder. You should fast your fish for 3 days, then begin fee…ding it cooked de-shelled peas twice a day for three days to help clear constipation. In addition, make sure your tank water is very clean by keeping up with regular maintenance including water changes of at least 50%. SBD (Swim Bladder Disease) is not always treatable, and sometimes a fish does not survive, but if treated early enough, the rate of success is higher.
The phrase 'fish school there' means they group or gather in that location. A group of fish is called a school of fish. Therefore, if 'fish school there' they join together to… form a school.
The phrase "How much is the fish?" has no meaning, other than that associated with pricing fish at the market. It is the title of a song by a German Techno music group call…ed Scooter in June 1998, but apart from this, it is not used in an everyday or academic context by English speakers. " Thanks for all the fish" is an entirely different story.
It means you don't have much of a choice - if you don't enjoy it,you'll just have to "take your lumps" and suffer.
Dreams are about the person experiencing the dream. "You" in another person's dream represent some aspect of that person, not "you" yourself.
There are so many different symbolic meanings associated with "fish" that a meaningful interpretation is impossible without additional information about this specific dream. J…ust one possibility, related to the association of fish with Christianity, might be that the dreamer is considering joining a church or some other Christian organization. Another very different possibility, related to the association of fish with female sexuality, might be that the dreamer hopes to become more actively involved with women.
