FROG KILLS KOI IN UK POND by [email protected]

Does algaecide kill lilypads? by [email protected]

FROG KILLS KOI IN UK POND by [email protected]
We have had the exact same experience. The frogs killed all our fish by clinging on to them. I tried to prise them apart with no joy. We now keep our pond purely as a wildlife pond with no fish, which is better for wildlife anyway.

FROG KILLS KOI IN UK POND by [email protected]
I have just witnessed this myself , I have just netted my koi at bottom of pond with a frog on top of it-the frog had wedged its front feet into the fish gills killing the fish. It is mating season at the moment - so this is possible. I was a bit quick removing the frog from the koi to see if the...

Fix your existing Pond Liners Leaks*Immediately by Joan keeley
Protection could be a reason once pond liners are used. Once a hole is, a pond liner is placed within the hole so it's stuffed with water. Rocks are then placed round the perimeter of the pond to hide up the sting of the pond liner, and additional rocks are congregated on a mound of dirt lined with...
