I RECENTLY BUILT AN OUTDOOR POND AND MY WATER IS REALLY GREEN (NOT CLEAR). I dont want to introduce chemicals into my environment. How can I clear up the water to prepare for visual enjoyment and transplanting my RES'. One person at a pet store recommended puting in some hyacinth and that should clear it up. Currently i have the largest pond filter you can buy at home depot. I am considering making a homemade filter and incorporating it into a waterfall. The filter i purchased is nothing special, basically a bucket with a pump inside that sucks water through the top past a foam filter and into some bioballs and ejects it out a tube into a fountain shape. I threw in a couple of pieces of drift wood from my RES tank hopeing that would add some bacteria into the system, but no change yet.
