     Here's the answer you've been waiting for...


Hi Friend,

Happy Thanksgiving!

And thanks to everybody who sent in their answers for last weeks 'Bead Filter Trivia' question -- I was surprised at how many people knew it (or who were smart enough to do a little research!)

In case you were wondering why we haven't emailed out the Pond Q&A this past week -- it's because I took a much needed mini-vacation to Las Vegas (to celebrate my 35th birthday!)

Since I'm usually up to my eyeballs in pond questions (and other water garden related matters), this is a good time of year to escape for some overdue R&R.

Now, don't ask me what's relaxing about a city that has more flashing lights and shady characters than a Star Trek convention (no offense to any trekkies), but it was still good to get away...

Ok, now on to our Bead Filter Trivia Question Answer (plus some readers comments and questions!)

??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
Here is last week's 'Bead Filter Trivia' question again: Question: Who knows what University invented the first 'Bead Filters' for use in commercial fish hatcheries?
??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Here is a reply from Denise Sezack who was just one of probably ten readers who sent in her answer:

"Hi Brett,

Love the Q&A emails, thanks for taking the time to do them, they're greatly appreciated and a lot of fun to read. As a Penn State Master Gardener who is a pond nut I do a lot of volunteer lecturing on pond care and I always recommend your website. Hope you enjoyed your R&R. My guess for the answer to the bead filter question is Louisiana State University??

Thanks again,

Denise Sezack

You are correct Denise!

Several people sent in the right answer (amazing, but true) and will also be receiving a free copy of our water gardening ebook Water Garden Secrets (a $37 Value)! Look for an email download link soon.

The biological bead filter was invented at Louisiana State University by Dr. Ronald Malone and his associates in the Civil Engineering Aquatic Systems Laboratory. This technology was designed to be an effective biological filter, as well as an efficient mechanical or solids filter.

The unique design uses a unique gravity assisted backflush sequence to flush out all the fish waste and organic debris, BEFORE it has a chance to break down and pollute the water. These funny looking filters are reliable and easy to use & maintain. Great Job Dr. Malone!

Here's a picture of the original Bubble Bead design:

Now on to our questions...

Question>

I'm asvin.b from Mauritius (indian ocean) and i have a question for you. I have a 1350 gallons pond in my yard and i had it for over 3 years now.

Its summer time down here and my problem is with frogs. I have been having problem with frogs ever since I had my pond. I had to put up a chicken wire fence around my pond to stop them from getting into my pond. well it work.

They normally come at night time and what I really hate about them are the horrible noises they make. I have a lot of trouble getting some sleep. it's a nightmare.. The fence stop the frogs from getting inside my pond but they would still come over every night, and making lot of noises and trying to get inside. what should i do?

thanks.

Answer>

Hi Asvin,

Wow, another international reader! Well, I can definatly relate to your problem. Not to long ago, I had a pretty big frog & toad party going on out by my pond, that continued well into the night. They would get so loud with their unusual symphony, that I too had trouble falling asleep...

I remember one night, losing my patience - grabbing a flashlight and an old FedEx box, then going on a commando mission at 4 AM chasing and catching these little guys. I caught 12 or 13 frogs and toads, in what seemed like less than 5 minutes... Then I fired up the BBQ (only joking)...

AT this point, the box with all the frogs and toads in it had taken on a life of it's own, and I had a hard time keeping it from jumping out of my hands - so I walked down to the end of my street and let them go. Granted, it wasn't that far for them to find their way back - but the good news is they haven't!

So, try relocating as many of them as you can, and maybe they'll take the hint and leave you alone.

For those of you who missed my frog and toad pictoral in last month's issue of PondStuff!, here are the pages again:

That's all for now..

Enjoy your day off, and look for some possible specials tomorrow (or even a SALE!) But I can't promise anything just yet..

Happy Pondkeeping,

Brett Fogle
