I finished a science fair project and counted fish "breaths" taking in 
water.  We counted their gills too.  All our fish (3types) seemed to 
breathe slower at cooler temperatures.  Why do they do this?  Does it 
affect their body temperature?  What does this have to do with 
"homeostasis"?  I am in 8th grade and cant'd find any sources.
