Different Solutions for Different Seasons & Species

It’s entirely possible for a solution to work on one type of algae or one time of year, but it may not be right for another.

Especially in summer, when conditions are hot and stagnant, many stubborn algae will thrive. Some of these are very hard to keep up with and tough to control.

Prevention Pays Off

Benjamin Franklin once coined the phrase, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." This definitely falls in line for algae, too. If you've had nuisance or stubborn algae in the past, it’s more likely to be a recurring problem in your pond. That’s why it’s so important to get out ahead of it. An ounce of prevention, if you will, goes a long way with algae. Focusing on light and nutrients is a key component of that strategy.
