    The data presented in this article are related to the research article entitled "Expression of genes for melanotropic peptides and their receptors for morphological color change in goldfish Carassius auratus" (Mizusawa et al., In press) [1]. This article describes data on the density of xanthophores in the scales of goldfish acclimated to white or black background color. To determine the effects of acclimation history during long-term background color adaptation, fish were transferred from a white tank to a white or black tank and vice versa halfway through the acclimation process. To observe xanthophores, the iridophore layer was scraped from the scale and the pteridine/carotenoid pigments were aggregated. The number of xanthophores was calculated after image processing.
