Green water, or single cell algae that freely floats around in a pond, can be a real nightmare for the pond owners. Usually this stuff isn’t dangerous for fish but it sure can make a pond look ugly.
We all want clean and clear water in our ponds but sometimes this isn’t always as easy to get as it sounds.
Like any algae, green water uses nutrients in the pond and another big stimulator to help it grow.
In the video below I not only work on my tan…I give you some solid advice on how to control green water naturally.

You can most likely find plants locally in your area and this is a great way to support local business. I’ll then combine plants with beneficial bacteria to help address the main reasons why algae might be present.
I’ll usually give this approach at least a few weeks to even a month or more to work. If green water proves stubborn, which it sometimes does, I’ll then consider adding a ultraviolet light to the system to help work specifically on the green water.
