    What is your nitrate level and what is your water change rate?

    Bro Dennis,
    There are a lot of preventions on how not to get into this problem. Such as, to shade your pond and to reduce Nitrate. But to remove it immediately without having the dead string algae floating or blocking your filter mats and pumps, I would prefer to scrape it and having a fine net to collect it. Carry out 50% water change. Stop feeding a day or two. This will reduce Nitrate significantly. Some type of algae killer will affect the pond equilibrium and will cause havoc when the algae died.

    Till today, the algaes have not yet return to my pond. By right they should, but not as yet. I have a huge suspicion that it got to do with Remedor that I dosed my pond with before re introducing the fishes into the pond. Remedor is a real strong stuff.........

    I have been having string algae problem lately. I tried several methods to rid the string algae in vain. Lately I was introduced to Algaefix by PondCare. It removed all my string algae within 2 weeks.
