James and I often talk about having an in-ground pond, not just a stock tank pond. Our friend Kip recently sent photos of his abundant population of leopard frogs in his pond. Wow, he's got 30-plus frogs! So I asked if he could send photos of the pond.
"It is a water tank that was electrified, plumbed and rocked," he wrote me. "The center water falls is built on cinder blocks so there is habitat for critters to hide." (His stock tank must not be as high as ours because we don't get frogs.)
"Anacharis [the green grassy plants] keeps the water clean," Kip says. "It is not native. Those are pregnant gambusia in the clear water. They eat mosquito eggs."
Some extra shots that Kip sent:
We love your pond, Kip! Thank you for sharing!
