Thanks all for comments.

Yes, it is always a concern for me that things will start falling from sky. But as this pond area is where the master room is, most of the units close their windows most of the time. Below is a pic I took. So I just hope these windows will remain close 365 days in a year 😆
I understand that any self construct 'shelter' that is to be mounted on the external walls will need relevant authority approval, and it is not cheap for the application. Thus I am thinking if the 'rain' really start pouring, I will get a parasol instead (this one sure approve without additional cost). No choice, already burst my budget...

Haha... I am still doing my best to convince my CO to allow me to have a monster pond. But honestly, I am already happy enough to have such a pond approved from her liao. She has already made my dream comes true, so I better don't push her too hard at the moment. Anyway there is a long way to go and I still have plenty time to brain wash her 😆

For the CCTV, I did intend to install but was told that if the residents complain, then I have to remove. So in the end I didn't proceed with this. So this is temporary on hold.

I understand from the pond builder that the fgt is ready. He is currently waiting for the glass to be delivered to him. Hopefully next week he could deliver the fgt to me. Cheers!

U have to be careful how ur base is constructed.

If there r cases of dengue in ur area... NEA will come and do checks and they may want to see ur drainage or the base of the aquarium is dry.

Or if u have pesky neighbour that compliant mosquito breeding, then u will have some explaining to do.

Cuz ur tank is very openly to all ur neighbour's sight

Another , dun ganna someone on top start fishing w a line down in ur pond during midnight.

It's good to have a retractable shelter, kopi tiam style, or just cover w netting

No offense Thomas,
I think you are too engross with the build of your pond that you are overlooking alot of external issues that you will come to face once your pond is up and running.
Esp the point that Vic brought up on the mosquito, drainage and smell thing.

And I guess your livestock would adds up to maybe $15k?
You just wanna leave them out openly at the mercy of some Tom, Dick or Harry living upstairs?
Bear in mind, not everybody is a fish lover.
And there is absolutely nothing wrong with your neighbour chemically washing their window as and when they feel like it.
They dont need your permission...
And its not deliberate, you got no case.

Just to check, will fumigation cause any harm to a open pond like this?
