If you’re working your way through the alphabet, then I wanted to offer “X” solution with this X-Ray fish lesson. Turns out these guys go by lots of different names, but most often the x-ray one because of their transparent bodies.

In real life, I think you can see their body organs too, but that sounds kind of messy and complicated. Why not just concentrate on their silvery look with the help of a silver metallic marker around some bright crayon color. It’s a nice change from the usual black, and adds a bit of sparkle too.
