Effects of dehydration and staining on inner ears illustrated by the position of the otoliths. In dorsal view, 3D reconstructed utricular (red), saccular (purple), and lagenar otoliths (yellow) show a discernible shift in the black molly (A-B) provoked by dehydration and staining while in S. tinanti(C-D) the treatment effects are small. Scale bars, 1 mm.
