Suggestions on plants/fish for my first pond
Lizards tail and Bacopa caroliniana are my favorites but I like to keep it simple.
Edit: the great thing about these plants is that you can bring some clippings in and slowly submerse them in a display tank for the winter. The bacopa has very fragrant flowers and the lizards tail has heart shaped leaves which grow quite large and more arrowhead shape when emersed but become compact and fuller when submersed. Neither of these plants are demanding of light and will thrive in most conditions. I plant my bacopa at the small catchment at the bottom of my wall fall. It loves it and so do the frogs! Plus with the constant disturbance from the fall it makes that part of the yard smell great.
