Aiyo bro, u dont make me embarrass by showing my simple filtration la I am just hoping to see your pond and your whole filtration as you have not updated for some time. Let us take a look at yours

Saying the filter, the last time I open up my wooden decks to check on the midges are a few days back. Disappointed as I could still find a handful of midges around. Thought they will be fully wipe out I add in some more "donuts" and cover the decks back. Maybe is time to check again
Btw, I found there are snails at my compartments as well 一波未平 一波又起 should I just leave the snails alone? Any advise?

Bro Denser, regarding the maker, probably you whatsapp me (91716751) and I tell u privately...

Cheers!

Regarding the midges. Are there any more midge larva? The midges may not be from your pond, but are there looking to lay eggs. The BTI is to prevent those eggs from developing. They do nothing for the adults. Can't comment on snails heh. Interesting how they pop up from nowhere. The larva must have come in when you introduced water plants or new fish.

I suspected glass but a friend of mine told it might have been acrylic or polycarbonate material stuff ( assuming I get the spelling right). Would you be so kind to take more pic of the shades coz I m trying to get some ideas on how to build a shade for some "project" and I could really use all the nice design to show to the empress dowager at home

For bros that are checking with me on the midges issues. Yes! It is solved! The 'donut' works! I opened up the the wooden decking of the filtration, only 1 (or 2?) midge flying out cannot believe it bros who are having midges problem as me, will know how happy I am I just not sure if I should continue putting the 'donut' or I should just stop?

Cheers!

Thanks bro I just afraid that the fish might look ok for short term but actually unhealthy for long term usage... I will use till this pack of 'donut' finished then just leave as it is till further action is required again

Btw, any bro here is very good in wifi cctv setting? Those China brand, I need some help
