Any ideas on building a pond on a large apartment balcony?
We shut off our fountain for the winter because last year our pond froze,and we had to pull the pump in the dead of winter. This year we added 4 aerators and a heater. We are getting a big build up of algae. Is this normal? What can be done?
It is not unusual to grow string algae in the winter even with a cover of ice over the pond. It is a plant that has very few requirements and since the other plants are dormant it can take over in the winter. If there are not any fish in the feature an IonGen can be used. If there are fish it should be used with caution since copper levels can rise quite quickly once the string algae is gone.
