I'm on the 7th floor so not too much wildlife to worry about except birds. Mostly it's to diffuse the sun light from heating up the water too much. Seems to be working good so far.

then, you won't be able to enjoy the pond view so much right?

how about putting the bamboo thing at the ceiling like this instead?

10g balcony pond

I felt like this pond need some attention. So, I built a small raised bed garden to surround the pond.
