Zebrafish larvae has aroused worldwide attention in the medical field for assisting the development of new medicines because of its biological nature. To study the interactions between swimming zebrafish and surrounding fluid, we have developed a novel tool to exploit intravital changes based on the experimentally observed zebrafish locomotion. By using our in-house MATLAB code and a customized Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) tool, we are able to simulate the real zebrafish swimming which is comparable to the observed live zebrafish.
