Tadpoles not growing into frogs by Pete Thomas
Hi all, I'm new to this group. I recently moved and started a wildlife pond. I "borrowed" some frogspawn, the tadpoles hatched but it looks like none of them are growing legs. My previous wildlife pond just down the road in the same locality (Southampton UK) had plenty of tadpoles turning into...

Pond pictures and update by Chrissy
Dont know if some of you may remember me posting. I was one of the ones that had dirt in my water. Well we had to drain it out, got out all the rocks in the pond and set it back up again. In the meantime we transferred our Comets over to a holding tank and lost 3 of them due to the...

Raised pond with flexible liner ? by 2pods
I'm a complete novice, so I'm looking for some help I saw a nice idea for the patio with a rigid liner surrounded by earth/sand, then sleepers built round it. However, I wanted our small rigid pond for somewhere else (maybe semi-raised, as I can't dig much due to illness). Could the raised...

feeding question by Deswinds
Can someone tell me what to do? or how to go about encouraging my fish to come to the surface to feed? Right now they wait for the "floating" pellets to sink to the bottom before they'll eat. I know, this is hardly a concern, generally, but my grandkids don't quite understand why they won't come...

Barrel pond gone stagnant by Colin Eberhardt
I recently purchased half an old barrel to create a pond. The barrel is about 90cm in diameter. I originally stocked it with a few plants, some oxygenating plants and added a small fountain.
