Love the critters too. Would a couple of feeder goldfish keep the

Davy,

You are putting perimeters on a pond that don't
work in nature so you aren't always going to get
the results you...

Today I noticed that tadpoles hatched and
there are little snails zooming about and
tiny seed shrimp going hither and yon.
My favorite kind of ponding! I...

I've seen that happen on a tropical water
lily I had in the deck pond one year.

It's called viviparous reproduction.

Some tropical Water Lilies can be increased by viviparous reproduction. This...

I ran a shallow water pond, the 'bog', for years
without fish.
Also consider my pond more of a wildlife pond,
with fish, as all are welcome at my pond including
herons.

I don't think you need them.
But you can add a few if you want.
Underwater plants give tadpole and aquatic
insects a place to hide and hang out.

frogs or toads?

Yes, toads mate in water just like frogs.
Their eggs will look like long strings of black
beads.
A good way to ID your toads is to go to google
and type in 'native amphibians of - your state'.
