Current GOAL

Please drop this item in rural OR Premium Member Only caches.  Do not place it in an urban cache or abandon it at a caching event.  Transport the bug in the original plastic bag for as long as the bag lasts; the bag keeps the trackable clean, preserves the tracking number and prevents tangling with other items.  Otherwise, take the travel bug anywhere you wish.  No permission is needed to leave the U.S.

Photos in the travel bug logs are appreciated.  I will be re-post them here, where they can be seen by other cachers.

About This Item

I am always alert for items I can convert to travel bugs.  This is one of a small series of painted, wooden, generic fish-shaped cutouts to which I have attached a tag.  Each TB of the series is named for a freshwater aquarium fish of the same color as the wood fish.  An image of a live fish can be seen elsewhere on the TB page.

The Red Irian or Red Rainbow has brightly colored males and silvery females. A male fish, without a female present, may become duller in color. It is competition between males that brings out the best colors. To see good strong reds, frequent water changes are also essential.  Rainbowfish are known for their characteristic large eyes, black or silver band that runs through the middle scale rows, deeply forked mouth, and two dorsal fins.  This is a very active fish. The plants should be sturdy enough to stay rooted and recover from any browsing. There should be a good stretch of open water for them to school in, thus a large tank is required.

Dropped this fish near to some water. Good luck! I’m sure the local surf scouts will take care of you whilst on holiday here.
