    Before when my pool was drained and had about 1gallon of water in it (its about 1 inch high because our pool is big) and it was dirty/soily but when i look closer there was some little fish
    I dont know how it got there we had a pond but the fish in there wss different after a while the pond got the fish in the pool too how did this happen there are no frogs nor waterfowls. I even saw the egg it looked like a tomatoe seed with a head and a tail
    The fish was very small and i would like toknow how it got in the pool and the pond
    Is it possbile that soil can create fish? Or life?

    either a bird or reptile brought an egg from elsewhere into your pool.

    Are you sure it is a fish, and not a tadpole or something like that?

    Once I had a goldfish show up in my pond. I had not put it there. I accused the neighbors of playing a joke on me. [​IMG] They denied it. I never did 100% figure out where it came from. I believe it may have hitched a ride in on some plants I had bought for the pond.

    I vote tadpole as well. Has it been there long enough to morph yet? (we had some laid in a kiddie pool years ago, my parents didn't drain it for a few weeks, and it was swarming with them).
