|Swimming Free by Kirsten Borror|
2012 Acrylic 5x5
In Lake Kutubu, Papua New Guinea you will find the Rainbowfish, Melanotaenia lacustris. If you want to purchase one, know that it is hard to find with this much coloration. If you are patient and diligent in caring for it, within 12 months you may see males as brilliant as this one. It is an active swimmer, needs lots of open space for darting about, as well as thick vegetation in which to hide. Provide the right environment and the fish will reward you. We live out of the environment of our hearts. Is your heart right? Do you want to live freely able to display your true colors? Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.
