A general commercial aircraft is pressurized at about 8000 feet of pressure. Isn't that bad enough for a fish?, considering that in space, there is no pressure at all, so the shuttle needs to pressurize more, so there will be less pressure in the shuttle.........

For the folks wondering about the pressure changes, the entire fish tank would have to be maintained at it's own pressure simply to deal with the effects of 0 gravity. Regardless of what pressure they keep the shuttle at.

Personally I'd be interested to see how they recycle the gases in the tank. There's a dozen ways to do it, it's just a question of prefferences in how they want to engineer it.
