    Can predation result in selection for color patterns in guppies?

    Explanation:

    Researchers took guppies from their pools that is seen to have pikecichlid fish (a huge guppy predators) and then implanted it in another pools that is seen to have the killifish (they are not really active predators that prey wholly on the childish and immature guppies). They then estimated to see if the color patterns in the grafted or transferred population undergo some alterations in the course of time.
