This activity is also seen in the sunfish. Largemouth bass will go into an
area frequented by many bluegill. They lie on the bottom and take on a pasty
coloring. The bluegills seem to know this is a cue and come in to feed on
parasites. As soon as the bass reverts to a normal coloration, the bluegills
flee, if they dont the bass gets lunch. Not sure if other species do this.
