Metal Fishes

I've been working on drawings for some of the "inhabitants" for the immersive river scene I plan on creating for Senior Sem. I've researched some rather interesting creatures through my expansive knowledge of freshwater life. I'm going to stay true to size, shape, colors, and patterns for all of these, so quite a few will be quite large. I'll include the intended length of the actual sculptures along with some pics. Here are some photos of what these creatures actual look like;
