    OK...I don't have a pond, but know someone that does and is asking for help (Since my tank doesn't believe in algae thanks to EI). Does anyone have info on controlling algae in a pond?

    Sure, add more floating plants, works every time.

    That's what I figured. Maybe I'll take over some of my rotundifolia :)

    Hyacinth is the most common weed.
    I like Cow lily, lotus etc

    Shoot for 50% surface coverage or slightly higher till things get better.
    Prune off leaves if they get too big, too much coverage.
