Fish at Yale-NUS Eco pond

Some very interesting fish (South American cichlids?) at the Yale-NUS Eco-pond. It is quite an unknown place, located deep inside U-Town. Not many people know of its existence. Do check it out if you pass by NUS.

At around the 1:45 mark in the video, you can see some juvenile cichlids eating algae growing on the rock.

Some photos of the Yale-NUS Ecopond:

The pond is behind this large circular fountain.

 

There is also this rare tree (supposedly the only one in Singapore) right behind the pond, called “Margaritaria indica”. I think only expert botanists can tell what is so special about this tree. To laymen (like me), it looks like any ordinary tree.
