If your water is not too cold, you might be able to clear up the water
by using plecostomus catfish, or plecos. These can be found at a pet
shop. They grow up to 18 inches long. If you take this route, you will
have to feed the fish because algae alone won't be enough to keep it
fed. They like lettuce.

Subject: [NAFEX] Question......
I have an algae problem. I water my greenhouse by pumping well
water into an elevated tank then use the water after it warms to
greenhouse temperature. Trouble is, I get an algal bloom inside the
tank. The algae then covers the soil surface of the plants and all this
has been a constant battle with fungicides for the plants, draining &
cleaning the tank, and etc. Does anyone have a suggestion as to how to
control the algae in the tank?
