    It sounds as though you have everything under control. Who knows you may even have some frog spawn within the next few weeks. Hopefully, if you do, the fish don't see it as a tasty snack before it hatches.

    Ive not had any spawn since installing the pond mid 2017 only what i introduced last year a bit of a mistake doing so for more than one reason one most of the tadpoles went through the pump and was killed two i introduced chick weed and three Mr Blackbird enjoyed eating them,

    I wont be putting any more in but if they breed i will have to sort something out with the pump i can net the pond to prevent the birds eating them, the fish are small they never bothered with the spawn last year,

    The water is a lot clearer today another few days and it should be like tap water until i clean the pump out and mucky it up again.
