@odole I understand what you mean, thank you very much! I was planning to make the pond bigger once fall comes around, since its too hot to dig right now. What do you think would be the minimal size for the pond to “fend for itself” so to speak? I have no problem with checking on it periodically but for example right now I don’t have much of an enclosure to put the pond animals (just some buckets and I don’t know if they would survive for a few weeks there until the pond dries fully) so would I need to acquaire some equipment in the future like fish tanks and such? Or would just some water buckets like the one in the video be enough if I provided some food like leafs and fruit while the animals are there?
@thelamb I will try first to remove as many mosquitofish as I can and if it does not work I will do as you guys suggest. I want to make sure I have a proper temporary enclosure first to ensure the tadpoles and other critters do not die of lack of food or oxygen while they’re out of the pond.
