Results: We found that when we showed the
picture of the Betta fish one inch away from the
tank that our Betta fish stayed on alert for the
longest amount of time.

Acknowledgments: Would like to thank Alice Chmil & Takisha Reece for providing the Betta fish, and the Upper School Science Department.

Alternative Hypothesis: The size and amount of time the fish is shown will change the agonistic response.

Methods:

We showed a living Betta splendens a picture of a similar splendens.

Measured the agonistic response of the living Betta fish.

Conclusion:

● The experiment was pretty successful.

● The extra variable added more work.

● Next time, we should be more organized and put more effort towards the experiment.

Future directions: Next time, more

controlled experiment. Instead of having multiple variables, we would have one.

Introduction: In this lab we measured the effects measured the agonistic response of our Betta fish. An agonistic response is any social or behavioral response related to fighting.

Research Question: We wondered how the size, distance and amount of time showing the picture of the Betta splendens affect the agonistic response of the living Betta splendens.

Research Objective: To see if changing the size of the fish shown and the how long we show it changes the agonistic response.

Null Hypothesis: The independent variable will not change the agonistic response of the Betta.

Hypothesis: The size of the Betta shown will change the agonistic response of the Betta
Hypothesis: The size of the Betta shown will change the agonistic response of the Betta

Hypothesis: The size of the Betta shown will change the agonistic response of the Betta splendens in the tank.
