NANFA-- filmentous algae problem in pond/complete pond tear down
Sat, 7 Sep 2002 22:05:25 EDT

I have two 6' round ponds about 20" deep. Both have assorted potted pond
plants and were also used to breed daphnia. What I believe is filamentous
algae has infested everything and I would like to get rid of it without
hurting the pond plants and still be able to get a daphnia culture going
again. I figure I might as sell get rid of the snails and duckweed while I
am at it.

Water levels are way down due to the drought so I figure now is a fine time
to empty them and start over.

I am open to any ideas! A friend said there is an enzyme you can add to the
pond water that will kill the filamentous algae.
