I found him in a over populated tank at PetSmart. He was in with the small comets and was one of the smallest. He's young. I'd say more slim than fancy but time will tell..Being so young. With the long, slim and pointed(!) tail I was excited to find him.

Hmmm perhaps I will take some time and pass my photo around. It's a bad photo. It's from a distance and zoomed in. They are still spooked by their surroundings. And it is pretty small. You can see the floating food pellets close to him..

It's a pond. I've got an aquarium set upside down in it like a telescope that they can swim up into. That's where the picture is from

An otter cleaned me out last week. Third time in three years. First time koi I raised from fry...Burned my butt. Then some fancy shubunkins and goldfish. Then this time was just some long tailed comets I hand picked. I've got a sheet of plexiglass I can put over I just have to cut out the aquarium size so they can still look around etc.

Your fish may be a comet, which has all metallic scales or a shubunkin, which has both matte and metallic scales.  The coloring favors the a shubunkin, but we would need better focus to see the scale types.  The comet tail always has a wide fork and pointed tips.   Again, better focus would show the tips of the tail better.  The fish unquestionably has the long slim body of a comet/shubunkin.
