Beautiful fish in backyard

Ever since we've lived in this house, I have been dealing with the fact that our backyard floods. The reason behind this is the development company was not allowed to build the development behind our house due to the fact that it was on protected land. The company did very well work with poor materials and that lead to our problems.
At first I didn't know how these little fish were able to find your way into our floodwaters. But come to find out, the retention pond that is supposed to drain our neighborhood is graded the wrong way. This leads to the water flowing towards the yard which is hey we flood. The floods can get pretty gnarly during the rainy season, but I still enjoy watching the fish in the crystal clear water because I find nature fascinating.
If you notice in the beginning of the video, there are two minnows hanging out on the left-hand side of the screen and they move near the end of the video. I slow down the video because it was necessary to see the fish actually moving and, of course, that's the best part.
What still baffles me is these minnow fish were often found before there was a hole in the wall so they had to have found the way into our yard without actually having a clear path. My hypothesis is that the fish are able to get through mud.
It's took me a while to catch them on video, because it's hard to film fish under the water. But I finally did it, and now I get to share with you.
