Thank you,thank you, I can now go mad! and maybe, what I first wanted to know is this a weed or a plant in the wrong/right place. It is a really lovely dark green and very healthy, but what is it called.

Thanks so much I thought I'd killed it off and wondered how to revive it, I think it is me that needs reviving. Thank you.

Thanks everyone as I said we now don't have any fish, otters are very nice but buying breakfast for them every other day is a bit much. I'm just on my hands and knees each morning seeing if there is anything new, a 66 yr. old child again, but who cares anyway.

Hi I'm not new to fish pond life but for some reason wild life pond seems much different there are some leaves in the bottom I was wondering whether to get some snails or something but I'm not sure where from as our fish supplier we used to use has since closed down, does anyone think they would be necessary.

We have had the pond about 18 years and up until last year we had gold fish and shibumkins until we were visited by the new local otter, and over night the lot had gone we bought a net and a few more fish and low and behold two days later they were gone so no more fish! The pond is just 2Mts.x2Mtts. I have a couple of  lilies, marigold type , various iris and some oxygenaters. There is and escape route if any falls in as the sides are straight up,no beach part. I was just going to move one of the plants when I saw two long strands of spawn. They should be happy enough in there I just didn't know how long they would be.

Can anyone tell me how long it takes from spawn to tadpoles, also I have not long ago started a wild life pond with just a few plants in will there be enough to eat for them?

I think in the end it will come down to finance as now I am torn, wildlife or fish, I have seen a stainless steel mesh which is rather expensive so buying a few plants does have it's advantages. We shall have to see.
