Colour morphing Kuhlis - cool!

A couple of months ago I posted when one of my 4 Kuhlis appeared pink. I actually witnessed this happening the other day - While cleaning the tank I startled one of the little fellas, who in a matter of a few seconds lost all colour and became pale pink (he's usually a very dark brown).

I kept watching - a few minutes later he gradually started to regain colour, until he was back to normal.

I knew that they could change colour when stressed, but this is ridiculous! Does anyone know if this is unusual, or been noted before?
