Hi all,
I am working on my house renovation right now and am thinking of placing my goldfishes in the balcony.

Tank in balcony (morning light) = algae - clear tank can see green water abit not nice.

"Pond" kind like water feature - even have algae cannot see as much (cos water is hidden)... so am leaning towards this.

Anyone has their goldfishes in those pond-like water feature? I still have my 4 pearl scales with 1 (fat) ranchu -- any advise??

Thanks so much

I had a 4 ft pond at my balcony with plenty of afternoon sun. My fishes enjoyed the sun, and the water turns green. Fish growing faster than in my 4 ft tank.

Wahh... I also want!!! tongue.gif

How much roughly did you put in for this setup? What is the capacity of the water? Setup bought from Mainland, Farmart, or? I went to Farmart and they have this shop that does something like this. But minimum setup cost they quoted me was $500.... sad.gif

I setup myself lah !

Bought everything from a landscape shop in Thomson...near TCS cannot remember the name...carry every single piece of bricks all by myself..dammed Tiring !...cannot remember how much too long ago.

It started as a Koi pond...then the kois grew too big n started jumping out of the pond n I have to cover the pond...Quite unsightly...so Change all to Ranchus

I brought a blue tub at $32.00 at redhill market, solid wood structure I constructed it myself to elevate the pond. I use only sponge filters with air pump, my 4 TVR growing much faster than the one in my 4 ft tank.

Have to use extension wire then. Or actually can get an electrician create one power point nearby. Best is your balcony comes with good drainage system and water point! good.gif Change water also easy!
