There really is no special paint schedule for any fish if you really want to get into fish painting. You need to look at your reference and work a paint schedule from there.

Use a burnished silver, with a lot more air pressure, this will stand the pigments up on end as they hit the fish, you want to dry mist it. You may also want to experement with Lifetone CHROME, buff it with a soft clean cloth and you will get a bright silver.
