It's pretty hard to take the report seriously when he says, "In the future, Oldfield said, "This study might help us to better understand how human behavior changes when people are placed in different social environments." Violence in prisons might be linked in part to the smaller space and reduced stimuli."

What happens when you put 10 aggressive dudes, who have all been convicted of assault/murder ect, in a small room together? The same thing that happens when you put 10 angry mangrove jacks together in a 6x2

Cichlids have long been the favourite poster childs of sociologists everywhere.

I do have to say though that in the situation above I would reccomend this paper.

Coexistence of permanently territorial cichlids of the genus Petrochromis through male-mating attack.
