I've heard that fish and insects don't sleep. Anyone here know?

Fish do sleep. I'm sure. If you put your ear against the fish bowl at night, you will hear them snore.

As for insects, some of them have a life span less than a day, so I guess they don't need much sleep, knowing that they will sleep forever and ever at the end of the day.
