Project Title: Species interactions alter the selection of thermal environment in a coral reef fish.
Aim: Establish the influence of species interactions on the temperature preference in the black-axil chromis, Chromis atripectoralis
-Focal fish used for measurements and conspecific treatment: Chromis atripectoralis
-Heterospecifics: Neopomacentrus bankieri
-Predator: Cephalopholis spiloparaea
Data information: Treatments included the absence of treatment fish (i.e., control), conspecifics present in both chambers (i.e., conspecifics both), conspecifics in the warm chamber or cold chamber, heterospecifics in the warm or cold chamber, and a predator in the warm or cold chamber in a two-chamber shuttlebox system. Each treatment has 10 individuals, each used only once.
File information: Labelled by date, tank, and treatment. Dates are marked by start and end date. Example) 1 (trial start date).2 (new start date).6 (month)
