Blanket weed is a pest, but the more critters you have in the pond the more it will all start to balance out. I find the daphnia do a good job of eating the blanket weed, as do tadpoles.
Wendy thats such a pretty planter tub pond.
Esspee, i wondred the same with our tadpoles, but ive noticed that as soon as they get legs and are abke to get out of the water they go and hide in the grass or flowerbeds, i guess so they are less vulnerable to predators hanging around the pond. So yiurs might just be hiding Until theyre bigger.
