    Green algae is usually indicative of too much light. Light in water has to be used so nature deals with it by producing algae.

    Peter, click on the attached link, go to Forums, scroll down to Algae .... you will be better informed by asking about algae problems there as the members are more knowledgeable than myself and probably others of this forum.
