Top view ranchus would be nice. Go Mainland this Sun and grab a few after the TVR show:) Think you can only keep fishes that do not jump or do chin-ups:D

thinking allowed...can diy a taller fence (4 sides) from bottom of tank up, maybe from platform up another 2ft.. that way can keep ray and aros liao... but may not be that nice already.. can install a netting cover with the fence edge to solve the high-rise-litterer problem.:rolleyes:

Today I make a temporary netting so that I can safely put my Red in the pond without worrying that it will jump out. Is a bit ugly 😁

I am really surprise today that my Red is so tame. She allows me to bag her into the bag easily and didn't even struggle at all during acclimation, till she is in the pond. When she is in the pond, she kept swimming back at me allowing to touch her. Though she has PLJ, she looks so pretty to me. I am glad to see that she has a bigger space to swim now... Here is a video after I release her into the pond.

I have also transferred part of my medias (from my existing sump tank) into the pond filter. When I transfer my SP rays, I will transfer the rest of the medias. I think the ammonia spike is not really an issue as there are only a few fish in the pond at the moment and also there are mature medias being transferred. But to be safe, I have tested the parameters, so far so good. Will keep monitoring these.

My main concern now is the fluctuation of pH- whether the rain water is that acidic. I will keep an eye on this.

Once again, thanks for all the advises. All are well noted. Cheers.

Bro, nice pond. Under direct sun without shade might be too hot. During noon time, what's the temperature of the water?

Bro...your netting looks weak. Aro is very powerful when they jump.
