· This happens because light coming from the fish to you changes direction when it leaves the tank and in this case it can travel two different paths to get to your eyes. The changing of a light ray s direction (loosely called bending) when it passes through substances of different refractive indices is called refraction and is related to changes in the speed of light (v=c/ eta ). Refraction is responsible
