Who knows frogs?

Is there such a thing as having too high an acid level in the water to encourage proper fertilization of the eggs? Two times I've seen spoiled eggs in the water, but no pollywogs emerge.

2. I'm sure it's possible

Frogs have permeable skin and their eggs have permeable membranes. Amphibiabian populations are one of the first to be affected by pollution.

4. I don't know frogs but I do know they are featured in "The Sixth Extinction."

Actually, I do know some frogs. They end up in our house occasionally and I have to repatriate them. One of the unexpected features of living in Florida.

5. We get tadpoles in our pool.... but those are from toads I think.

We find them when we open the pool in the spring. We don't get them once the chemicals are working though!

6. I was late cleaning out the oak leaves and

the pump sprung a leak so the water went without circulation for three days. Even the water fleas seemed to have trouble with the water. Too acidic.

BTW, I have that area set apart for the backyard concept so the only chemicals I put down is fertilizer for mondo grass and the camellias. Nothing goes into the pond.
