Anyone know what type of fish this is. I caught it at the lake and I’m not sure what it is. I put it in a little patio pond fountain thing like a 1 and a half ago. About a month ago I took all of the fish out (so I thought) and then I come back yesterday and find him in there. Still alive. There was no oxygen air source, and no food. I was almost certain I got them all out. Anyway, I just wanna know what this amazing miracle fish is. It’s also not just a mosquito fish. Thanks

just a wild guess. A type of shiner or minnow that could have escaped someones bait bucket perhaps?

It's a killifish. Probably a female Fundulus chrysotus, Goldenear Killie, since it seems to be Freshwater. Another possibility would be F. cingulatus, but they don't have "glitter" on the sides like chrysotus.
