Hi all, I'm new to this forum so hope this is ok,

found these fish in a friends pond today and hoping for id

they ranged from 2 cm to about 6 or 7 cms

the pond owners have no idea what they are as they just have goldfish they thought lol

What [MENTION=9246]Donny@ageofaquariums[/MENTION] said ^^

Definitely not gambusia. Looking at the clearer two fish on the left (& their reflection more importantly on the water surface above), I'd almost say very juvenile M. duboulayi given the pink area (red spot?) around the gill area & clearly forked caudal fin?

What do the 6-7cm fish look like??

Unfortunately we haven't been able to catch any of the bigger ones yet as the pond is slightly hard to get to ,

They look grey from above which isn't much help I know sorry,

Trying to upload a video I took to see if that helps, but couldn't get it to load mvery appreciative of your help everyone. Thanks

Juvenile Rainbows without a doubt. Impossible to ID the species based on that photo but likely Douboulayi. Need to see photos of 5cm+ fish to ID.

P.S Some of those fish are extremely skinny.....
