    Found this picture on line and I love this paint selection. What colors would you guess are on this, attached. Looks like only 3 different greens? I've switched to WB paints.

    Looks like a medium bass green either sprayed thicker on the back are a light coat of black on top of it

    I only see one color of green, but different intensities. A transparent or semi transparent is good for this. Just spray thicker for a darker color. An opaque color can do this too when thinned and sprayed lightly.

    As for the color, it could be anything from a commercially prepared "Bass Green" as mentioned, or Sap Green or individually mixed.

    I see shaded yellows, shaded blues, shaded whites, and extremely dark gray or black.

    A word of caution here, painting fish using mounted fish as reference is not too good of a practice. Using real fish for reference is much better.
