In general, studies have shown that women folk demonstrate identical aggressive behaviours to males, albeit less frequently and extremely. An observational study examined a group of female Siamese fighting fish over a period of two weeks, through which time they were recorded attacking, flaring, and biting food. This indicated that once ladies are housed in small groups, they form a stable dominance order, or “pecking order”. For example, the fish ranked at the top showed higher levels of mutual shows, in comparison to the fish who were of lower ranks. The researchers also found that the length of the displays differed dependent on no matter if an attack happened. The outcomes of this research imply that female Siamese fighting fish warrant as much scientific study as males, as they seem to have adaptations of their behaviours to boot.
