Baby Goldfish in the Bucket

Every year as the Sweet Flag grows likes crazy, I cut back some of the longer shoots and put them in 20 gallon buckets to make more habitat for the frogs. The frogs have taken full advantage the buckets but occasionally I would see small fish darting about. Since the fish can't live long in buckets without aeration, I went fishing this weekend. The first picture shows two about inch and a half fish. The second shows seven fish from tiny to an inch long from another bucket. So either some fish eggs or fish frye came over with the plants and grew in the buckets. After catching the fish and taking their picture, the fish were released back into the large pond to grow up big and some will turn orange.
