 Pics  of  the  pond,  after  I  set  up  the  dolphin  c-1600  external  filter.  I'll  try  to  post  one  properly  and  then  put  in  the  other  ones.
 
 The  filter  is  in  a  ditch  right  beside  the  pond.  You  can  see  the  tubes  on  the  side.

 Hi  Bala,
 
 Well  currenlty  what  i've  done  is  have  a  hood  for  the  pond.  If  you  look  at  the  first  pic,  you  would  be  able  to  see  a  reflection  of  the  hood  on  the  water.  The  hood  stands  about  5  feet  from  the  ground.  Although  Sunlight  does  come  in,  it  would  only  directly  fall  on  the  sides  of  the  pond,  for  a  very  short  duration  in  the  morning  and  in  the  evening.  This  really  helps  prevent  an  algae  bloom.  
 
 The  Tank  Stats:
 
 Volume  (When  filled  completely)  -  ~2200  Litres
 Footprint  -  around  30  sq  ft.
 Depth  1.5  -  2  feet.
 
 Fish  count  would  be  at  around  80  .  With  an  average  length  of  3  inches.  Here's  some  of  them
 
 3  -  Rainbow  Sharks
 2  -  Ranbow  Sharks  (Albino)
 5  -  Chinesse  algae  eaters
 9  -  Clown  Loaches
 4  -  Yoyo's
 4  -  Zebra  Loaches
 4  -  Spiny  Loaches
 5  -  Carps
 ~12  tiger  barbs
 ~4  Cherry  barbs
 ~6  Widow  Tetra
 3  -  Bala  Sharks
 2  -  Iridescent  Sarks
 1  -  Pleco
 5  -  Gouramis  of  3  different  varieties
 4  -  Angels
 
 Filteration
 
 I  have  one  dolphin  C-1600.  That  just  turns  the  water  around  once  in  3-4  hours.  This  is  really  low.  But  this  is  the  only  external  canister  filter  that  I  have  been  able  to  find.  Will  probably  need  to  upgrade  as  the  fishes  grow  big.  I  do  have  a  Dymax  pump,  that  I  bought  along  with  the  filter  that  gives  me  2,800  L/H  but  I  havent  installed  it  yet.  Not  sure  if  it  could  drive  the  dolphin  canister.

 Hi  Surya,
 
 Thank  you  for  your  comments.  I  do  agree,  I  don't  have  much  of  a  variety  when  it  comes  to  plants.  I  have  not  been  able  to  find  much  in  the  stores  at  cochin.  The  most  "exoctic"  variety  that  I  have  currently  would  be  Java  Fern  and  Anubias.  Could  you  let  me  know  what  other  plants  I  could  look  for  ?
 
 Thanks
 -Trent
