    Darksaber Pond - My Next Adventure

    @brokensword Two weeks would be delightful this has been going on since mid-April. Music loud enough to drown them out would probably make the neighbors upset, actually already worried about when one of them is going to complain about the frogs. There are toads and frogs and the sounds range...

    @brokensword When should it have passed last night and early hours this morning were terrible?

    @addy1 @Jhn thanks for the information! That's really helpful and gives me a bunch of new things to research and try. @Lisak1 thanks for the compliment! We LOVE it, the only thing we don't like is that the frogs and toads are out of hand. Some nights it's so loud we don't even want to be out...

    Thanks for confirming. After looking around last night at all the comments on products I started coming to the same conclusion. Amy particular brand you'd recommend? I started looking at Volt and Aquascape before I stopped looking for the night.

    Thanks once the mulch goes in and I till a couple more areas and get some ground cover going it'll really start coming together. Any suggestions on pathway lighting? I want to get something in there for that too, then hopefully by the end of May just mostly watch it mature, and maybe tinker...

    Thanks. They were gone two days later. Anyone have a recommendation on outdoor pathways lights (solar or otherwise)? Overhead shot from my friends drone. Mulch should finally be going in on Saturday!

    In the water attached to the rock at the waterfall so it's a high flow area. You don't think they could be leeches (my worst fear)?
