Kathy, I have what I thought were two bullfrogs in the lotus
pond ... only thing is they are closer to solid black than any
of the guys shown on the website you posted. Also, I
do have alot of goldfish in the lotus pond but I have not seen
either of these guys go after any of them. In fact, I have
never seen any bullfrog eat anything! Wonder if what I'm seeing
is not a bullfrog at all? but some other critter? I checked
all the pics and don't see any that even resemble my frogs.
The soil in the lotus pond is a brackish color .... the frogs
seem to be this awful color. Wonder what I've got here?
