What is this mysterious rainbow fish?

Does it even exist?

The REAL Rainbow Fish Story

In the real rainbow fish story, the glittery fish gives away its prized foil scales to other fish in acts of generosity.

The story was designed to highlight acts of kindness, generosity and unselfishness, along with emphasising the importance of individuality.

In Niall’s case, however, it looks as if he will be dishing out his scales until he finds a fish to share his waterbed…
