Yuk! This slimy hair algae in my pond is floating-The string algae treatment worked-Fish in the pond are healthy

First, my followup posts for my slimy string algae project took awhile because I needed to see if it cleared up the pond without hurting my fish.  Yes it worked and this photo is what happened a few days after I added Tetra Pond, Algae Control.  BE CAREFUL! and follow the directions completely or you will damage your Koi / fish.  Reminder – I am no expert just someone who loves her Koi and wants a clean, healthy pond.  Worried about my fish I also added a little API Stress Coat, it claims to have the healing power of Aloe Vera and I use it every time the hose goes in the pond to add water. ( A Stress Coat is needed to make tap water safe.)  Follow Directions on the bottles!  Ok now back to this photo of green pond water yuk!

Treating my pond for the slimy string/hair algae and green water is working! Algae blooms cause the green water in ponds. The algae on the sides of my synthetic liner have loosened and now it is time to scoop it out. Slimy and Gross but anything to keep my Koi happy.

pond is clean

The algae treatment worked perfectly and our pond filter, pump system has kept the water clean.  The fish in the pond are healthy and happy.
