It's upon us now. That time between winter, and full spring. When algae blooms, before the bog plants are fully awake.
That’s what I’m seeing this year (first spring with the pond). I tried buying a frog last year, but he left my pond. Would it be better for me to try buying several tadpoles from the pet store in hopes they decide to stay?My late winter/early spring algae bloom is always in the form of string algae on all the large rock surfaces. Once all the frog & toad tadpoles hatch & start their munching, though, (as well as the rest of the plants get growing) it all just disappears.
Frogs and toads have naturally found my pond. They come back every year. Give it some time.That’s what I’m seeing this year (first spring with the pond).

I have a small 800-1000 gal pond and live in NJ
