Red alga or what?

I'm not sure whether it is an alga which has recently appeared on my well-established garden pond but I would like to deal with it. The pond, about 12" deep, has a fair amount of plant life of various sorts and there are half a dozen apparently healthy goldfish in it. This new arrival is rust-red, floats on the surface and consists of tiny specks of a red whatever! Thus far the fish appear untroubled by it but it still looks unsightly. Over the last six months or so I have been treating the pond with Clearwater to rid it of spirogyra algae and that seems to be well on the way to success.
Any ideas about this 'problem' please?

Hmmmmmmmmm, never heard of the red water thing or Clearwater.
Is there a pump and filter in the pond as that might help. Can you skim that stuff out w/a fine net?
