Hi bros,

Thanks for all the comments. Yes, the net is temporary and I am still cracking my head on how to make the shelter looks good. Need some time...

I have changed the base of the pond to white as the original black base pose difficulty for me to view the fishes. Initially there is problem as the white acrylic board couldn't 'sink' as the current flow in the fgt is pretty strong. I manage to get helps from my builder as he made some weights and painted them 'white' for me 👍 With the weights, I managed to 'station' the board down with ease 😄 It is a 'scary' experience for me as I have to walk in the pond to make sure the board is laid nicely. Luckily my rays are tame and didn't really cause me any problem.

My Red has suddenly fast for the past few days. I am not sure of the reason. I check the parameters and all are ok. Except that the pH is 6+ At my old house and the pond pH is 7+. I think the high pH could be due to the coral chips and shells which were placed to act as buffer. I do not dare to remove as I was afraid as the pond stabilize, the pH will drop. I just hope my Red will start eating soon. I am getting Mirage Vita to try out and see if it helps.

I also notice that my water looks yellowish. Is it because the water is stained? Or is some kind of reflection? Any advise on this?

Ok, here are some pics to share. Cheers
