Just Updating Pictures From Last Years Pond Project!


Here are just a few shots of the pond as it progresses into it's first spring. We have some green water, which is apparently not bad for the fish...I have barley floating under the waterfall to hopefully clear it naturally. I will let you know how that goes. The tadpoles are now the cutest tiny frogs ever. The pond does require daily cleanup, daily fish feedings, constant weeding and placing of plants here and there...oh my, what a chore! LOL! Okay, seriously, I escape there and find the 'work' pleasure! <I've added several shots, once they load and say complete they vanish...anybody know why or where?>
I am just loving the colors, the 'green' water  the orange of the fish and the purple flowers!

not a great shot but I am leaving it because I've spent HOURS trying to load better ones that seem to vanish once they are 'complete.'

This is not the best picture, I need to work on that! This is the far end of the pond though.

I just love the small plants that are taking off so well around the edges of the pond, with a little bit of the waterfall in the background...

One of my favorite pictures...Sir Rib-bit is waiting for his share of the fish food.

A small space between rocks has become this frogs home. He waits there for me to come out and bring fish food. I never thought I'd have so much fun just watching a frog...and his name is Sir Rib-bit!

Just so you can see how small the frog really is!

You have not had a tour w/out an intro to Stupid. I tried to give her another name but honestly! I check numerous times a day, counting 1 to 14. When 1 goes missing, it is always her. She can be found stuck head first in between rocks!

    Try going to an Aquascape Distributor and getting an IonGen to help with your algae problem.
