Dark Waters

 This spring the water in the pond was so dark we had trouble seeing the Goldfish.  The last time this happened, it was an abundance of green algae.  I solved the problem with a UV filter.  It worked well for a number of years until now.  I suspected the UV bulb was dead but first I checked the filter and it was clogged with slime.  I cleaned it and a couple of days later the pond water was getting cleaner.  The process takes a couple of weeks so we know soon if the problem is solved but at least I have a better view of the fish.
