Is there a word for tiny ponds, like pondlet?

I got to work right away yesterday and built the little cattail pond.  The hardest part was moving a bunch of sheet rock and backer board so I could get to the bentonite in the garage.

Here you can see how the bentonite clay shrank over night where it dried.   The pic was taken a little after noon and it's been partially cloudy today and not very windy.  Once there are more cattails in the water, we'll have less evaporation, but the plants will use more water.   The 5 g bucket was almost dry after a few days without refills.

I saw ONE bee. Stupidly, I forgot to empty the buckets from washing pots by the house last night and several bees drowned and many were still swarming.  It got dark on us watering and getting salad yesterday.  So now that those buckets are empty, they'll hopefully move to the garden.

I'm very pleased with the performance of the sodium bentonite.
