filamentous algae out of control
I am needing some suggestions on how to get rid of it or control filamentous algae. Whether it be algae eaters or other methods.
I have a 125 +/- gallon garden pond with a small waterfall (soon to be expanded). it's been set up for about a year. I have two shubunkins, numerous ramshorn snails, and trapdoor snails.
For plants I have water lettuce, water hyacinth, umbrella plant, arrowhead plant, variegated spike rush, star grass, and a ton of anacharis.
Some of the plants I got came with algae, so I think that's how it got started. The pond is on the north end of my house and during winter months it doesn't get any direct sunlight.
Any suggestions would be helpful.
