How to Catch Rainbowfish in Animal Crossing New Horizons
To start your quest to find a Rainbowfish in Animal Crossing, you’re going to first need to take out our fishing rod by equipping it from your pouch and head to a river on your island –this is where Rainbowfish are found.
You want to look for a small shadow in the water and it’s also worth mentioning that rainbowfish can only be found between the hours of 9 AM and 4 PM. It also has to be during the months of May – October.
Just keep fishing until you find it and if you need help, crafting some fish bait will really come in handy. You can learn about how to make those right here.
Rainbow Fish Sell Price
Once you get your hands on a Rainbowfish, you can either donate it to the museum or sell it at Nook’s Cranny. Timmy and Tommy will buy it off you for 800 Bells, but if you wait for CJ to pop up on your island, he’ll buy it for 1200 Bells.
So as you can see, the rainbowfish is not worth a whole lot of money, but you can still show it off in your home or just give it as a gift to a villager you don’t like –your choice.
