The Rainbow Fish is a popular children’s book by Marcus Pfister, but did you know that a freshwater rainbow fish really exists? This colorful underwater friend can be found in Australia and New Guinea. They lead content lives in captivity and feed of flakes or insects floating at the surface of the water. Rainbow fish are usually around 5 inches long but can reach up to 8 inches in length. They are harmless and friendly fish that do well in tropical fish communities although males sometimes show aggression toward one another during breeding season. Because these fish do so well in captivity, you can take your kids to see them at an aquarium when they finish making this adorable and colorful fish craft. They can get excited to paint a fun fishy friend while also learning about the real life fish that their artwork is based on. Who knew a fish painting would turn into such a great learning activity too?
