Patio pond with frog?
I built a very small (60 gal est) rubber lined pond in my patio with a waterfall. A Frog moved in. The kids have been feeding it for about 4 months now.
My concern is that if we keep feeding it, are we preventing it from hibernating?
We are purchasing a heater for the pond because we do know it will freeze solid over the winter...What temperature should we set it at??...We know that this type of frog hibernates in the water.
We installed a pond net whixh is suspsended about 1 foot above the waterline. However, the water looks pretty dank because of all of the rain washing through the leaves. Normally, I would do a water change. The concern is that the water from the hose is much warmer than the pond. Will this rapid temperature change hurt the frog?...We do use the water conditioning solution that is used in Aquariums.
Are any of you reading the question? The pond is shallow, it will freeze. The water is dechlorinated - I am not shocking it, or using tap water ECT. I cannot move the frog, he is too fast. I realize that a frog is not a reptile, but there is no Amphibian page...
Oh, and to the guy who is saying that the pump needs to be dry.....The pump needs to be constantly wet because the rubber bearings will dry out,,,you need to store it in a bucket of water when not in use...
