algae vanished by ///Owen\\\\\\
My pond had the usual algae bloom when it started up again, but it's settled down OK. I have water trickling down a concrete lantern which soon got covered with a luxuriant coating of algae. But..... one morning it was all gone. Bare concrete. How come the algae vanished so quickly? Thanks John
