The influence of behavioral and environmental variables on the initiation of spawning in Trichogaster trichopterus was investigated. The behavioral responses of isolated males and females to conspecific visual and chemical stimuli were also examined. Fish in divided aquaria were administered visual cues of a conspecific through a glass partition, chemical cues by an exchange of water between the two chambers, or both visual and chemical Cues. Males and females differed in their response to… CONTINUE READING
