From: Female mate choice in convict cichlids is transitive and consistent with a self-referent directional preference

Figure 2

Mean proportion of time (+/- standard error) spent on the side of the preferred male. These preference indexes were computed for the 36 females having made a transitive ordering of the triplet of males (male 1 was preferred over male 2, male 2 over male 3, and male 1 over male 3). For example, the first bar (1–2) depicts the proportion of time spent on the side of the male 1 when tested with the male 2. Different letters mean statistically significant differences.
