I would bet it's a black racer too. I have had babies that ate fish out of a water bowl, so I wouldn't doubt a wild adult would too. There are also some dark colored watersnakes which would also relish fish. But they are heavy bodied and keeled scaled.

I wish my pond would attract such things...

----------
Little snakes are neat but some of the things around here will completely remove everything from your pond. Bufo toads magicly appear come June to August in huge numbers and huge toads.
I put chicken wire small mesh type around the pond or they will pour into a pond knock over every planted potted plant-water lilly,etc and lay billions of eggs .
Herons will wipe out a pond in one day but since my pond is next to patio screen door they have never come they fear humans but they wiped out a neighbors pond of small koi .
Overall the wildlife was here before us and most I will ever do is use chicken wire around the pond during toad season .
The snakes I do like and just as well as no way to stop them from coming but I genuinly enjoy the times I have seen them .
