Tetra Pond Algae Control is formulated to effectively control algae blooms (green water), string and hair algae (spirogyra) and blanket weed (oedosonium) in fountains and ornamental ponds with synthetic liners. When used as directed, Tetra Pond Algae Control can be used with plants and ornamental fish. Before using this product, dislodge string algae off stones with a high-pressure hose nozzle and scoop out with a fish net or pond vacuum. Ensure your pond is well aerated. See the product label for complete directions for treatment. Algae are primitive plants that, via photosynthesis, combine water and carbon dioxide to form sugars for energy and growth. Algae can obscure colorful fish and deplete valuable oxygen. No pond is ever totally free of algae, but in a balanced environment and with the right treatment methods, algae can be kept in check.
