Looks like a silver minnow of some kind. Will see if I can find it somewhere. Is a fish that I like if i ever have a big enough tank.

Nice pond, not often do you see so many plants and so clear water in a pond, not around here anyway.

Well after doing some searching it almost definately not a minnow. The tail is far too broad. I would think it might be a hybrid or variant of the bala shark or maybe a female of the species. Wish I could be more help but hopefully someone will know what it is for sure and have a reference.

id like to add the decor to the tank is nothing to do with me! i think it looks rubbish, its the fish i was taking pictures of :lol:

i think he is a kind of Cyprinds / Rasboras species but not 100%
