 Hi  Ravi,
 
 I  saw  you  pond's  pics.  First  of  all  let  me  say  "your  pond  is  beautiful   Very Happy  "
 
 Second,  your  pond  is  undergoing  eutrophication.  In  simple  words  there  is  an  algal  bloom  due  to  excess  of  nutrients,  primarily  nitrogen  and  phosphorus  compounds.  This,  since  you  have  already  mentioned  that  there  is  no  soil  at  the  bottom  of  the  pond,  is  primarily  coming  from  your  KOI  carp  and  other  fishes  (i  hope  you  are  not  using  fertilizers  in  the  pond).  Which  i  have  kept  in  past  and  i  know  that  they  are  voracious  eaters.  Voracious  eating  means  voracious  excreting...  thereby  increased  nutrients.  
 
 Since  your  pond  is  situated  in  the  middle  of  a  garden  and  you  must  be  using  fertilizers  in  the  garden.  There  is  a  possibility  that  the  fertilizers  are  leaching  in  the  pond.
 
 But  I  think  it  is  primarily  due  to  the  waste  produced  by  the  fishes.  How  many  fishes  do  you  have  in  your  pond  currently  and  of  what  size?
 
 I  think  you  should  somehow  change  the  water  because  it  must  be  very  high  on  nutrients  currently.  Secondly,  you  can  use  some  floating  plants,  particularly  of  eichornia  species,  they  are  very  good  at  absorbing  nutrients  and  you  can  easily  keep  them  under  check.  Eichornia  has  really  beautiful  purple  flowers  as  well   Very Happy  
 
 An  air  pump  will  also  help  release  some  of  the  nutrients.
 
 Do  read  about  eutrophication  on  the  internet.

 Hi  Keshava,
 
 Thanks  a  lot,  since  I  became  the  member  I  came  across  lots  of  information  and  did  not  know  what  to  apply,  I  will  start  with  your  suggestions  and  see  how  effective  they  are.  We  have  lots  of  fishes  Koi-carp,  tinfoils,  gold  fish,  mollies,  sharks  and  may  more  which  ever  dose  not  fit  our  glass  tank.   We  have  2  plecos  which  have  grown  big.
 
 I  will  start  with  floating  plants,  water  change  and  a  air  pump.  I  would  like  to  have  a  clear  pond  with  big  Japanese  KOIs.  I  am  amazed  to  see  that  there  is  lots  of  science  and  effort  behind  a  beautiful  pond.
 
 Thanks  and  Regards,
 Ravi      http://indianaquariumhobbyist.com/community/modules/Forums/images/smiles/grin.gif

 Controlling  algae  growth  with  the  long  summer  days  of  sunlight  becomes  harder  because  that  promotes  overgrowth  of  submerged  aquatic  plants  and  algae.  What  actually  helps  in  even  small  backyard  ponds  is  applying  pond  dye  because  it  shades  the  pond  from  specific  UV  rays,  and  that  will  slow  the  growth  of  algae  and  keep  the  pond  water  much  cleaner.  Emergent  plants  and  floating  plants  like  water  lilies  will  not  be  affected  and  it  is  safe  for  fish.  I  think  the  best  pro  is  it  protects  the  fish  because  the  color  acts  as  a  shade,  so  it  is  difficult  for  predators  to  see  the  fish  below,  hiding  the  fish  from  their  detection.  The  other  thing  is  as  temperatures  go  up,  dissolved  oxygen  levels  in  the  pond  go  down.  Since  the  pond  dye  creates  a  shade  it  will  keep  the  water  cooler  and  your  fish  will  have  a  healthier  oxygen  supply  during  the  hot  summer  months.  All  of  this  creates  a  healthier  ecosystem  in  your  pond.
