Preserving Colorful Fish?

I recently had a thought about preserving some fish in jars. Apparently, it's easy to do with rubbing alcohol, but the colors will get bleached. I've read you can "fix" the fish with formalin before...

If it really bothers you, why not put a sticker over it? One of those vinyl ones that doesn't need an adhesive would be ideal. A funny quote or something fish themed, maybe. I know it's in the middle...
