Records of Changes in Color Among Fishes.

  This is a fantastic book that was published in 1930 by the New York Zoological Society. The beginning states, in part: "Most of the tropical fishes on exhibition in the New York Aquarium have the capacity of making instantaneous changes in colour according to their moods or to artificial excitements. The men who feed and care for these fishes become acquainted with their different phases of coloration and detect them readily while the casual visitor passes by unaware that the black and the white and the showily coloured specimens in a certain tank are all of the same species and may all look alike a quarter of an hour later".
