Anybody who deals with water gardens and ponds, even for a short amount of time, understands how frustrating algae can be. Thinking of how to combat the different types of algae can be tormenting. However, there are some ways that algae can be beneficial.
Some types of algae are extremely important for the ecosystem. There are millions of algae species, with most of them being small. With so many species, there are exclusions to controlling some strains. For the pond, it is about control-not completely killing the algae. Many common algae need sunlight and warmth to flourish.
