Hi ,
I'm from San Diego Ca. and I'm building a 2500 gallon pond Its configuration is Waterfall at one end
streams down about 8-0 x 2-6 x 1-0 deep into the main pond which is 12 x 10 x 2-6 deep. It will have a 3-0
dirt area or skirt around pond where animals can get out of pond. It will also have a 3-0 wall to enclose
I would like 2 Turtles , 2 Salanders, some Toads , maybe a few Crawdads and also maybe a couple of
Garden Snakes. I would love to have Frogs but I think they would get out of enclosure. With your advice and experience how does this animal mix work and what would you advice be?
