Abstract Previous work has demonstrated that fish prefer to school with familiar individuals. In this study schooling preferences for familiar female guppies, Poecilia reticulata , developed gradually over 12 days, but once established were maintained. This contrasts with condition-dependent recognition in which fish rapidly learn to discriminate between conspecifics on the basis of obvious morphological differences such as body size
