I reckon they'd have to be big fish to eat a frog.

In with the koi’s
I’ve got a couple of Mirror carp that must go double figures.
The pond is roughly 5 foot deep with a raised edge with coping stones on the top hanging over the water .
As I don’t have a island, l don’t know how a frog etc could get out of the pond .
On the odd occasions that I’ve seen them they squeeze between the liner and the coping stone .
This year I’ll be constructing a floating island,hopefully giving them somewhere to rest up .
Regards
Tom
