Three Super Easy Tricks for Getting Rid of Notorious Algae

-James Anderson

Quite often, pond ownersare frustrated with the presence of algae in their ponds which becomes an unwelcome sight to them and the simple pleasures of fish and pond keeping seem like a chore. Algae cause green scum at the pond edges, discolor the water and/or create a dense green mat under the surface. If conditions are favorable, algae spreads quickly and threaten the aquatic life. Thus, to prevent such a situation fromoccurring, algae control in a pond becomes necessary and you can do so by adopting the following three easy tricks.

Notorious Algae
1. Go Weeding:
Many pond owners underestimate the value of manually weeding out algae, but we say it is the quickest and easiest thing to do. You simply need to grab the biggest bits of string algae from the base, pull themout and toss them in a bucket or on shore. Though, physically removing algae might be a bit wetter than weeding out the vegetable garden, it will be quicker than other methods and provide an alternative to your daily workout.

2. Add Quick Growing Plants:
The main cause behindthe exponential growth of algae is the over-abundance of nutrients on which these algae thrive on. Therefore, to reduce the excessive nutrient content in the pond, add plants that use similar nutrients to your pond. You can soak up tons of nutrients by adding plants that either grow larger or reproduce quickly.

If you induce quick reproducing plant like water lettuce, it will grow fast in no time and consume excessive nutrients. Alternatively, you can also plant bog and marginal plants like cattails and irises that can eat lots of nutrients quickly. Also, these plants require minimal upkeep.

3. Add beneficial Bacteria:
Beneficial bacteria such as AquaClear Pellets and AquaClear Liquid will help consume the nutrients and cut down the growth potential of unwanted weeds and algae growth. Apply weekly for four weeks or until clarity has improved and algae growth has subsided.
