The pond is approximately 6' x 8' x 2' deep with a bubbler rock on a ledge. The pond is rock-lined with a fish cave. We just added some lily pads and and five 2" goldfish. I will be adding some marginal plants to another ledge soon. Location is NW OH, I believe in zone 6. I have always loved nature and critters, and also have a butterfly garden and raise Monarch butterflies. I got so excited this week to see that a frog has already found our pond! (How do they do that with no other water nearby??)

Welcome to our group! I had frogs in my pond as I was putting the liner down, like they knew water was coming.

Welcome, you will like it here! I also have a "surprise" frog, real cute green one, who found my pond. Our yard is fenced, it must have squeezed in under the bottom. He is 3".

The frog is probably telling his frog buddies, "Hey, how did this pond find us!" Welcome to the forum.
