I can't help with specific colors but suggest you look at http://www.taxidermy...s/airbrush.php. The site has links to a number of taxidermy paint suppliers here in the U.S. and some of the colors (including metallic) are specific as to fish species. Otherwise, you will need to mix your own custom colors from a standard palette offered by Createx, etc. Many painters would opt to layer translucent colors and metallics for life-like fish reproduction.
