Fathead minnow and zebrafish microarray experiment Samples for microarray analysis were generated in a separate, 96 h, continuous flow-through experiment. Nominal treatment concentrations for the microarray experiment were 0 and 50 μg haloperidol/L. Chemical (or control water) delivery was initiated 24 h prior to adding fish to the tanks. To start the experiment, fathead minnows (4 males, 4 females per tank) were added to each of three tanks per treatment group, while zebrafish (6 males, 6 females per tank) were added to each of two tanks per group. The time of fish addition was staggered by replicate within each treatment such that all samples from a given exposure tank could be collected within 60 min of the intended 96 h exposure duration. After 96 h, male and female zebrafish and female fathead minnows were anesthetized in buffered MS-222 and weighed. Whole gonads were removed, weighed, and preserved in RNAlater. Total RNA was isolated from fathead minnow ovary samples using RNeasy kits (Qiagen). RNA quality was assessed with a Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer and quantity was determined using a Nanodrop ND-1000 spectrophotometer (Nanodrop Technologies, Wilmington, DE, USA). Aliquots of six fathead minnow ovary RNA samples per treatment group (two from each replicate per treatment) were prepared for microarray analysis.
