Updated pond site

Post by Priscilla McCulloug » Thu, 24 Apr 2003 07:36:36



I updated my pond site and added two new pages.
You can see all the damage that dog did.
http://priss31.tripod.com/Pond3.htm

Also I would like to  know what this plant is?
Its really red and pretty.
Its the last photo on my plants link.
The guy at the Nursery said it was in a batch of pond plants he got in and
he didn't order it. I buy stuff from him all the time and he gave it to me.

I can't wait to get started on my veggie filter. It might be a couple weeks
until I can get some help. lol

I am sick!!!!
I just went out to feed my fish and both fancy's in the midget pond is gone.
I had my big red for 4 yrs and he was huge. The picture I took didn't do him
justice. The 3 comets are still in there. What ever it is only got the two
fancy's because I guess they are so slow. :-(

Priss,  I know how much you enjoy your pond - and  I know how
destructive dogs can be.  Sorry you weren't able to get the
authorities involved.

I also read your son's pages.  What a handsome lad he is.
He is doing so well in school.... really makes you wonder
about Autism - dreadful disease.

Thanks Nedra on the ponds and Joey.
I'm going to have to buy a different net. I guess the holes in that one was
to big????
Joey is doing quite well. We are on our spring break this week. Enjoying
outside.
I tell ya though, I am beginning to wonder if I shouldn't give up on this
ponding.
I live on the coast of Ga so we got all kinds of predators. I know it wasn't
that dog this time so no telling what
got them. I did stake my ponds out last night, but no visitors, except my
resident frogs. lol

Get a pond scarecrow. They shoot a spay of water at what ever comes to
close scares most pests away.

========================
We lost so may fish to predators that we "bird netted" both ponds.  It was
either that or let them turn into wildlife habitats.  Since netting them a
few years ago we haven't lost one fish.  :-)
We have 2 ponds, one is about 800 gallons and the other 2,000.  Both contain
goldfish, koi and plants.

======================
I'm in TN and before we netted our ponds we *SAW* these preditors eat our
fish:

Bull Frogs of every size.
Herons.
A diving bird I think is called a Kingfisher.
Snapping/mud turtles.
An assortment of snakes, most ever 2' long.

priss, have you thought about a plants-only pond? you can use mosquito dunks
for mozzie control if you do.

Has anyone put pictures of good/bad frogs/toads online?
I'm afraid I don't know the difference  :/

I'm in Atlanta, GA. if my location makes any difference.

TIA

Hello Allen,

I found this great site, I'm always looking for good ones as I am a Frog Fan
;-)

http://wwknapp.home.mindspring.com/GAFrog.Toad.html

It also has recordings of frog and toad calls which is a good way to ID frogs
and toads.

Look at the bullfrog, and his cousin, the pig frog, these are the predators of
the pond.
The easiest way to tell them apart from other frogs is to look at their eyes
and ears. Bullfrogs and pig frogs have a fold of skin that starts at the eye
and curves around the ear drum.
Green/bronze frogs are larger frogs that people mistake for bull/pig frogs but
don't have the curved fold of skin. Green/bronze frogs are much friendlier
frogs to have in the pond.

Bullfrogs and pigfrogs will eat anything. I've had them eat song birds. They
will also eat fish, crawfish, other frogs, snakes, mice.
If you ever want to move them from your pond let us know. Rec.ponders have lots
of practice.

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?
