    They sure do! Freshwater fish receive water by it going into their skin and into the system, but they do get some water through their mouth when they eat or open it. Saltwater fish do it the same way, but do something a little different though, because sea water contains much more salt, they have special cells called ionocytes in the gills which pumps out the salt in the body, so they don't get dehydrated.

    im not certain how that can be possible for they live in water! i have heard they they do nor "drink" water in the traditional sence but rather absorb it through their scales.

    NO! IF YOU LET IT LIVE AT PEACE IN IT'S WATER WORLD.
