    That mall has been abandoned for years so probably natural plants and algae.

    The density of the number of fish seems very high. The predators must not have found the Koi's secret hideaway.

    It's quite wonderful how nature can transform our garbage into something useful.

    Wow that is crazy cool. But just think about being there all alone just walking through the water with no sounds or anything. Gives me the chills thinking about it. It has to be creepy

    I doubt there would be predators. The mall is in the middle of a very busy city.

    It's noisy from traffic. You'd be more afraid of falling debris. LOL.

    Glad you asked so I searched youtube.

    Here you go.

    It turns out the fish are overfed with fish food from tourists! LOL

    AWESOME! There must be a lot of BB in the pond to support that many fish. Wonder how long it took for it to naturally cycle. :)
