The reinforcing effectiveness of models of Siamese Fighting Fish for operant responding of other Siamese Fighting Fish was found to vary as a function of the coloration of the model but not its brightness. Models colored unlike the S were effective reinforcers whereas models colored similar to the S’s coloration were relatively ineffective, confirming an earlier finding. The possible interaction between color and brightness remains unresolved.
