The anabantoids are a group of c. 137 species of air-breathing freshwater fishes found in Africa and southern Asia. All anabantoids have a pair of suprabranchial chambers that each house an air-breathing organ known as the labyrinth apparatus: a complex bony structure lined with thin, highly vascularised respiratory epithelium. The labyrinth apparatus allows anabantoids to extract oxygen from air and is a morpho-physiological innovation that has had a dramatic influence on the behaviour of… Expand
Patterns of Fish Reproduction at the Interface between Air and Water.
TLDR
The widespread but still rare, diverse forms of fish reproduction at the air-water interface across a broad taxonomic spectrum suggest repeated independent evolutionary events and strong selection pressure for adult fishes to protect their embryos from hypoxic waters, aquatic predators, pathogens, and UV radiation. Expand
Cooling of Siamese fighting fish Betta splendens (Teleostei, Osphronemidae) embryos at low temperatures.
TLDR
The cooling assays demonstrated that it is possible to store these embryos deprived of cryoprotectants at 5 °C for at least 6-hours without negative effects and a partial recovery was described on malformed larvae from embryo cooled at 14 °C. Expand
Housing, Husbandry and Welfare of a “Classic” Fish Model, the Paradise Fish (Macropodus opercularis)
TLDR
The relevant welfare parameters for keeping a healthy population of paradise fish are defined and the description of a detailed description of the recent experience in raising and successfully breeding this species under laboratory conditions is provided. Expand
Very high blood oxygen affinity and large Bohr shift differentiates the air-breathing siamese fighting fish (Betta splendens) from the closely related anabantoid the blue gourami (Trichopodus trichopterus).
TLDR
Differences in blood O2 transport characteristics in these two closely related species are likely correlated with the differing habitats in which they breed and inhabit as adults, as well as different activity levels. Expand
Morphometric characteristic and growth patterns of climbing perch (anabas testudineus) from sungai batang river, Indonesia
  • 2019
Like other freshwater fish species, the Climbing perch (Anabas testudineus) belongs to family Anabantidae is also widely distributed and commercially sold particularly in Indonesia,1 Lao PDR,2Expand
Behavioral and brain- transcriptomic synchronization between the two opponents of a fighting pair of the fish Betta splendens
TLDR
Brain-transcriptomic synchronization could be a general phenomenon and may provide a new cornerstone with which to investigate coordinating and sustaining social interactions between two interacting partners of vertebrates. Expand
The determinants of aggression in male Siamese fighting fish, Betta splendens
TLDR
It is found that colour and personality do play a role in determining the degree of aggressiveness in Betta splendens, with males either choosing to end conflicts quickly with more aggressive displays or to outlast their opponent with less energetically costly displays. Expand
Fighting fish love robots: mate discrimination in males of a highly territorial fish by using female-mimicking robotic cues
TLDR
Female courtship behaviours obtained in response to the robotic replica exhibiting light stimuli were comparable with responses towards authentic conspecific females, and the biomimetic approach to establish animal–robot individual interaction can represent an advanced strategy for trait-based ecology investigation, a rapidly developing research field. Expand
Multiplicity and Polymorphism of Fish Hemoglobins.
TLDR
The multiplicity of fish hemoglobins as particularly found in the tetraploid salmonids strongly contrasts with the complete loss of hemoglOBins in Antarctic icefishes and illustrates the adaptive radiation in the oxygen transport of this successful vertebrate group. Expand
Behavioral consequences of dietary exposure to crude oil extracts in the Siamese fighting fish (Betta splendens).
TLDR
Dietary exposure over a 4week period to low, relevant levels of crude oil leads to an increase in aggressive behavioral displays, a decrease in reproductive activity and additional morphological changes in fish. Expand

Morphological and Biochemical Variations in the Gills of 12 Aquatic Air-Breathing Anabantoid Fish
TLDR
The phylogenetic distribution of the fourth gill’s morphological differentiation suggests that these variations are lineage specific, which may imply a phylogenetic influence on gill morphology in anabantoid species. Expand
The Biology of Air-Breathing Fishes
TLDR
Physical principles governing the suitability of air and water as respiratory media, and the habitats of extant air-breathing fishes are reviewed, and terms and concepts related to aerial and aquatic gas exchange and bimodal respiration are defined. Expand
Studies on the Social Behavior of the Blue Gourami, Trichogaster trichopterus (Pisces, Belontiidae)
TLDR
The basic social organization of nonreproductive blue gouramis is a fairly stable dominance hierarchy, and interactions between adjacent territorial males contain a complex series of motor patterns, several of which seem to be markedly ritualized. Expand
The Pharyngeal Organ in the Buccal Cavity of the Male Siamese Fighting Fish, Betta splendens, Supplies Mucus for Building Bubble Nests
TLDR
The composition of the bubble nest is determined and the pharyngeal organ was found to be larger in male than in female fish, suggesting that the male fish secretes more glycoprotein-rich mucus to build thebubble nest. Expand
The ontogeny of agonistic behaviour in the blue gourami, Trichogaster trichopterus (Pisces, Anabantoidei)
TLDR
Agonistic behaviour of socially isolated fish, when paired in dyadic encounters as adults, indicates that the role of social experience as an integrator and regulator of social behaviour may change progressively during development and become more important as ontogeny proceeds. Expand
Reproductive biology of the neotropical armoured catfish Hoplosternum littorale (Siluriformes - Callichthyidae): a synthesis stressing the role of the floating bubble nest
TLDR
In the hypoxic water of tropical swamps, the main function of the floating bubble nest appears to be to provide oxygen to the developing eggs by lifting the eggs above the water surface while protecting them from desiccation. Expand
The Role of Size in Synchronous Air Breathing of Hoplosternum littorale
TLDR
How social interaction can affect air‐breathing behaviors and the importance of considering both behavioral and physiological responses of fish to hypoxia to understand the survival mechanisms they employ are highlighted. Expand
Mouthbreeding in fishes.
TLDR
Morphological adaptations for either herbivorous or carnivorous feeding can be advantageous for mouthbreeding, and apparently no special adaptations have evolved in the mouth for this behaviour. Expand
The Transition to Air Breathing in Fishes: II. Effects of Hypoxia Acclimation on the Bimodal Gas Exchange of Ancistrus Chagresi (Loricariidae)
TLDR
Compared with control fish, hypoxia-acclimated Ancistrus have a higher blood--O 2 affinity and more haemoglobin (Hb) and can maintain a higher aquatic oxygen consumption rate (VO 2 ) in hypoxic water and have a 25% larger ABO volume. Expand
The aerobic physiology of the air-breathing blue gourami, Trichogaster trichopterus, necessitates behavioural regulation of breath-hold limits during hypoxic stress and predatory challenge
TLDR
Test the hypothesis that metabolic responses to predatory challenge and aquatic hypoxia are subject to behavioural modulation and confirm that aerobic breath-hold limits were maintained following behavioural modulation of metabolic demands. Expand
