    Also, when you say clean your pond, how exactly do you clean it?

    One way to get your pond to stop turning green is to STOP cleaning it.

    Do give us more information about your pond - how many gallons, how old is the pond, how big are the fish, what kind of filtration. All details will be helpful.
