Tiffany Nay examined temperature preferences of tropical fish and factors that influence these preferences. She found that tropical fish do prefer specific temperatures and these are influenced by habitat quality and interactions with other species. This information is critical to predict the future distributions of tropical fishes under ocean warming.
