Do fish in ponds ever seek sunlight?
Since our water temperature has dropped to 50°F some of the larger sarasa rise higher in the water where the sun hits the pool and drop lower in the water when there is shade. I remember something from grade school about sunlight and vitamin D and got the silly idea to wonder if the fish seed the sunlight for vitamins.

i would be inclined to think they are doing it for warmth as well.

Could be warmth, fish are ofcourse exothermic (apart from a type of tuna and swordfish's eye IIRC) so their body temp is controlled by their surroundings and their behaviourMy therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .
