Is Providing Shades on a concrete fish tank necessary? Find out

Often times most fish farmers ask “must I cover a concrete tank with something to provide shades on my fish farm? Well, erecting a structure to provide shade for the fish is not necessary because the pond has a way of protecting the fish against the effect of the direct sunlight.

After feeding the fish for a day or two, the water in the pond turns green and this usually serves to protect the fish from access to direct sunlight when next you have the privilege of entering a fish pond either earthen pond or concrete pond, you will discover that the water is always cold. Therefore to me, erecting a shade is indeed an extra cost on pond construction
