Procuring subject animals and maintenance

We used wild-caught zebrafish (from Howrah district, West Bengal, India), bought from a commercial supplier. The fish were maintained in the laboratory in mixed-sex groups of approximately 60 individuals in well-aerated holding tanks (60 × 30 × 30 cm) filled with filtered water. The lighting in the laboratory was maintained at 14 hL:10 hD to mimic the natural LD cycle in zebrafish. They were fed commercially purchased freeze-dried blood worms once a day alternating with brine shrimp Artemia. The holding tanks were provided with standard corner filters for circulation. They were maintained in the laboratory for six months before experiments were conducted to ensure they were all adults and were reproductively mature. Holding room temperature was maintained between 23 and 25 °C.
