Identification of individuals is a prerequisite in many behavioural studies. Visible Implant Elastomer (VIE) colour tags are a well-established way to mark animals. VIE tagging does not seem to affect individual growth or survival. However, studies verifying their neutrality during social interactions are less common. Here, individual male and female zebrafish Danio rerio were simultaneously given the choice between two shoals, each consisting of six fish. Members of one shoal were uniformly… CONTINUE READING
