Abstract
In this paper, the formation mechanism of the complex patterns observed on the skin of fishes has been investigated by a two-coupled reaction diffusion model. The effects of coupling strength between two layers play an important role in the pattern-forming process. It is found that only the epidermis layer can produce complicated patterns that have structures on more than one length scale. These complicated patterns including super-stripe pattern, mixture of spots and stripe, and white-eye pattern are similar to the pigmentation patterns on fishes' skin.
