 If  you  could  put  some  half-beaks  in  this  pond,  they  would  really  look  good.  I  mean  platinum  halfbeaks  (dermogenys  siamensis)...  what  an  interesting  pond,  looks  like  a  really  cool  home  for  your  pets..

 Thanks  Romi!
 
 Not  sure  If  I  can  find  platinum  halfbeaks  (dermogenys  siamensis).  Will  see  if  I  get  lucky  in  Kolathur  when  I  visit  next  time.
 
 Btw  its  too  hot  these  days.  I  lost  my  guppies  already  (only  few  frys  seem  to  be  surviving)  :(
 
 So  far  below  fishes  surviving  this  weather  in  this  pond,
 -  molly
 -  rummy  nose
 -  harlequin  rasbora
 -  Siamese  algae  eater  (lost  1  recently,  still  trying  to  find  the  reason  behind  it  )

 Alman,  perhaps  you  should  shade  the  pond  in  the  afternoons?  Some  shadecloth  sold  by  plant  nurseries,  raised  over  it  with  the  help  of  a  few  bamboo  poles?  Here  in  delhi,  it  is  also  very  hot  and  I  would  not  dare  have  a  pond  like  that  exposed  to  the  afternoon  sun...

 Romi,  I  am  already  on  the  hunt  of  shade  cloth.  Btw  the  direct  sun  light  on  this  pond  would  1-2  hrs  a  day.  Others  wise  no  direct  sun  light

 hmm...  ok.  
 
 I  was  also  wondering  about  one  idea.  what  if  you  took  jute  sacks  and  covered  the  sides  of  the  Sintex  container  and  then  wet  the  sacks  daily?  I  think  it  will  cool  the  sides  of  the  pond  and  who  knows,  even  drive  the  temperature  down  by  a  few  degrees..
 
 Just  an  idea   Very Happy  
 
 A  person  in  Gurgaon,  near  Delhi,  who  is  an  architect,  put  one  earthern  pot  inside  another  one,  and  was  growing  a  temperate  (not  even  tropical)  water  lily  (helvola  lily,  popular  because  it  can  survive  frozen  ponds  in  America  and  is  adapted  to  COLD)  in  the  inner  pot.   he  filled  the  gap  between  the  two  pots  with  cocopeat.  And  wet  the  cocopeat  daily....This  brought  the  temperature  down  by  a  few  degrees  and  was  a  success...  the  idea  is  to  keep  something  in  contact  with  the  container,  and  keep  that  thing  wet.  .......Vaporization  causes  gradual  but  continuous  cooling  in  the  day  when  it  is  really  hot...  
 
 But  I  know  that  since  it  was  a  small  set  up,  it  was  easy.  You  pond  is  so  large   Neutral

 Nice  pond  and  beautiful  ,  healthy  plants  .  Keep  up  the  good  work   Thumb Up  
 A  question  though  ,  why  aren't  you  using  bog  plant  ?  something  like  dwarf  papayaras  ,  canna  lily  (Keli  in  hindi{female  banana}),  Taro  variety  ,  umbrella  palm  or  something.  They  look  really  amazing  ,also  provide  shade  and  are  easily  available.  They  give  a  new  dimension  to  the  pond.
 keeping  some  ambulia  might  also  not  be  a  bad  idea  .  Most  plants  i  have  seen  turn  dark  green  or  brownish  in  full  sum  but  ambulia  remains  light  green  and  sometimes  even  pale  green  to  the  verge  of  white  ,  a  contrast  to  other  plants  with  dark  leaves.
 Guppies  do  have  a  tendency  to  die  in  outdoor  pond  ,  I  have  tried  to  keep  them  in  pond  but  they  don't  usually  last  more  than  2  weeks  ,  always  by  ich  and  finrot  but  if  you  add  a  newborn  fry  in  the  pond  (within  a  day  or  to  after  its  birth  ),  they  do  really  well.

 Nice  Suggestions  Vishnu.  
 I  have  planned  for  bog  plants  to  bring  some  shade  to  the  pond.  But  did  not  happen  due  to  time  crunch  :(
 
 I  have  seen  umbrella  palm  in  of  the  nearest  nursery  here.  Will  try  to  buy  some  and  place  it  in  the  pond.
 Ambulia,  i  have  to  give  it  a  try.  Will  update  once  I  try  this.
