The new tadpoles are happily chewing through the algae in my pond and the water is slowly turning crystal clear. After a couple of days their pale colour darkened and they blend in well with the murky water.
Update 24/12/16: Dorothy the pool owner has a sparkling clean swimming pool and she managed to save all the tadpoles. Thanks to everyone who took some taddys.
A friend has tadpoles available in Karrinyup where her pool is about to be drained. They are motorbike frogs (Litoria moorei) and were under a pool cover so they are paler than usual. I got a bucketful today to put in my pond.
The pond in my garden attracts a myriad of insect life, such as this moth I found on a pond plant (Ornduffia albiflora) today. The pond has small fish to eat any mosquito larvae and stop mosquitoes breeding. When I first dug out the pond I hoped water movement from the water filter would be enough to deter mosquitoes breeding, but I needed biological control. I got White Cloud Mountain minnows (Tanichthys albonubes)* and later added Western Pygmy Perch (Nannoperca vittata) which are native to waterways in WA.
