The Queensland Rainbow


If you ever see a green weed decorated like a Christmas tree, in an aquarium, do not be surprised: it means that there are Queensland Rainbows in this aquarium. It is they who decorate the plants with transparent little bubbles on delicate threads. But the bubbles are not toys or decoration, they are eggs.
The Quuensland Rainbow is an inventive little fish; it hangs out its eggs and swims before them in pleasure. Soon it will have something to celebrate, when the young hatch out. But meanwhile the eggs hang there, swaying with every current and shining all the colors of the rainbow.
