  1. Really now says:

    It is algae. Keeping the water circulating will help prevent the formation of some algae.

    You have algae which is good for certain things like turtles and fish. Maybe do what the others here suggest or you could incorporate some aquatic life into your setting.

    well, i am studying to be a gardener (not to work, for my own garden) so we just had a lecture about ponds and how to keep them clean. u have to have a filter installed. it is like a small (or if u want big) fountain which keeps water circulating and also cleans it. to increas filter capacity there re some special pebbles – u put them near filter, they absorb all algae and dirt and after a month or smth u change those pebbles, and the pebbles u took out of your pond re the best fertilizer ever – u put it under garden plants. hope i helped
