Abstract The purpose of this experiment is to determine whether raising the temperature (?C) in an environment of Poecilia sphenops fish has any effect on their overall health, reproductive behaviors, and activity. Additionally, I sought to discover if increasing the temperature would have an effect on the tanks’ chemistry levels (including NH3, NO2-, NO3-, & pH). Raising the water temperature followed in accordance with rising global temperatures.
