After owning my pond for a few years I started seeing a few small bullheads coming up to feed. Then there were more and more, and they grew, with many reaching three pounds. But a few years later they all disappeared. I have no idea what happened to them unless otters ate them all, but why were there no small ones for several years. But then last year I started seeing a few small ones again. Where do they come from and disappear to. And will the cycle repeat?
