Couldn't see 'em either. But I must say I am impressed you haven't frozen solid! Sounds like you have a pretty good handle on things. Just my two cents on potential inhabitants; I'd make sure I had at least a couple sunfish. They are very visible, and can be quite fun to watch build and defend spawning beds and to feed. Pickerel are seriously cool fish, but I think of them as secretive. Is this a pond you might consider snorkeling in in the summer? Two feet is deep enough to lay in and fish-watch and might make some of the fish that are generally harder to see rather easy to observe...
