Colors/aggression/animal kingdom: Strongly colored fish are not to be held together in a small space. At most a single fish in a group of differently colored.
The more colorful, the more resident and more aggressive.
The most aggressive (strong-colored) fish in an aquarium were the ones who had no conspecifics to work off on them.
The most extreme aggressiveness is in those billboard-colored, wild fishes, which display their belonging through the color at a great distance.
Colors/aggression/fish/Lorenz: the residential-bound, strongly colored aggressive fish live in a place where there is particularly abundant and diverse food available: on the coral reef.
Explanation: here, like in a human colony, they can seize the "most diverse professions".
Colors/signals/aggression/animal kingdom/Lorenz: where we find strong colors and bizarre forms in males, it is almost always the female who has the last word in the partner selection. The males do not fight._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number. The corresponding books are indicated on the right hand side.
