Mine's not in direct sunlight, it's in pretty much full shade and mine have been fine in well over 90 degree temps. I was asking about lids/tops for the pond containers. Just trying to keep predatory bugs/nymphs out of my water and the lid I have on there is so solid I think it may be contributing to their color fade.
