Long flowing algae
I know that there have been tons of topics on string algae but I have a couple of questions so I figured I'd start a new thread.
We have SO much of this stuff that it's taking over the entire pond. Ironically, our water is still clear though. It's so clear that we can see nothing but long flowing algae that looks like green hair! We've used a scrub brush to remove some of it but only about a foot down because that's about as far as we could reach. Our pond is almost 4 feet deep so we're considering doing a 50% water change and attach a toilet type brush to a long handle to get the rest. It's even tangled up in the roots of some of our water lettuce. Does anyone have any suggestions before we start this?
