How can I control the moss, vegetation and algae in my pond?

All vegetation is not bad.

A certain amount is needed for good fish growth and protection. In fact fish will benefit from more vegetation than anglers will typically tolerate.  With that said, aquatic plants can become so abundant that they interfere with fishing, swimming, and boating. To control aquatic plants, it is important to know what type is causing problems.  For Information on plant identification, click here.
