We fill our pond with fresh water. Two or three weeks later  it becomes green with single-celled algae called Chlorophyta. Then we  wonder  what we did wrong and how to fight with them and. Our problem is not easy to solve. It turned out that only prevention is the most important cure against algae.  When green algae  are in your pond there is little you can do. It is true that many companies offer algae remedies, but I cannot recommend this method and do not even give you the names of these products. Chemicals work quickly and efficiently. However dead algae fall to the bottom and they  decompose and become nutrient for new even more amount of algae. It is vicious cycle because chemicals need to be poured into the pond ever  and again. It should be noted that contrary to what manufacturers write, these medicines damage aquatic plants very often.

Algae like all plants need  light and nutrients to grow. By limiting these factors we limit the amount of algae in our pond.
