Interesting, I was thinking it could also be a minnow or something too. I guess I'll have to wait to see. I don't know if it's someone's pet, it was in an odd section of the pond that was kinda closed off from the main part. So maybe? Anyways, thanks for the help!When I have found goldfish fry in my pond, they were less then an inch long and didnt look like that too me.
Perhaps you have some kinda minnow or some tetra? if its a campus pond like at a college or university then perhaps somebody released there pet fish into the pond and you happened to catch it?
