"While experiments have found that fish lose the ability to properly respond to either scent or visual signals of prey or predators when pH drops, the fish in these experiments behaved normally as long as both scent and visual signals were there. And critically, since the algae and plants in these tanks grew faster with more CO2 in the water, grazing fish and shrimp also did well as a result."
