Green Water

Green water is caused by algae. Algae feed off of the waste that the filter converts into Nitrate. If you have a ton of fish in your pond, you'll have a ton of Nitrate and that will fuel an algae bloom. The best way to get rid of algae is to use a correctly sized UV light. A UV will sterilize the algae, so it can't take over your pond. Your pond will clear up within a week of adding a UV light.
