About 50% of the stream is in constant shade. At any given time of day, about 30% of the pond is shaded by surrounding trees. Water temps may rise as high as the low 80's, but no higher.

If you are not overly concerned with looks, 50% shade nursery cloth is ideal. That is what I originally used before the landscaping got large enough to provide the shade required.
