Gypsy, plenty of color for those who like the beauty. Alocsin, I didn't at first either. The rainbow trout is beautiful. While researching, I learned that there was a rainbow fad a decade or so ago. Just interesting to know. Thanks again all.

      Who knew that trout could make for such colorful tattoos. I guess that's why they're called rainbow trout. Voting this Up and Beautiful.
