BEIJING, China (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - A magic trick performed for the Lunar New Year has drawn criticism from animal activists in China.

Hundreds of millions of people watched six goldfish swimming in perfect sync on China Central Television earlier this month.

The fish were swimming under the direction of a magician.

Activists worry magnets were implanted in the fish or they were controlled by electric current.

The magician refuses to give away the secret to the trick.
