i agree about the first part but no, there are not ten, let me explain\nthis riddle is incorrect, the actuall answer is six, so the three that died, there bodies are still there so you would think there are ten, however the 4 that swam away, well the writer says they cannot swim away, its an encolsed tank and there for it would be impossible, but wether or not it is possible is not actually relavent, the writer says in the question that they swam away, there for they swam away, reagardless of wether it is possible, because if you say they swam away in the question (wich it has) but you say they havent in the answer (wich it does) then the infomation you have been given is false, meaning the riddle is pointless, there is another problem but it will take ages to explain so forget it.\n\nalso fish can drown in water. its rare but it does happen. this riddle is terrible.
