I was amazed by this environmental friendly gesture of the barangay officials to clean the river and turn it to an aquarium! Now it's a home to many fish like Carpas and etc.. They all look healthy and big. People visit their place because of it.

It would generate income from visitors and for vendors. What place is this in the Philippines?

@renicemae see what productive things we can do if we just work together and forget all the fighting, idealism and fanaticism.

Yeah. I think people are allowed to feed the fish. I saw a man and a kid feeding them while I was there.

They cleaned it first by working together. They also placed nets with small holes in both sides of the river where water goes in and out to block the garbage or leaves of trees wont get in. And maybe the local government made an ordinance not to throw garbage in the river since they are developing it into an aquarium like river

Yeah. If only people will start to discipline themselves and throw garbage only to trashbins. We would have a better, clean and fresh place.

I like that but there's nothing much to see really. But maybe when we get there and visit the famous falls of the place then that would be fun.

Looks like a nice fish pond - much better than a dirty river...

Indeed. People do get better ideas when working hand in hand.
