    It's common in long, hot summers like this one. You can fight it, or just live with it.

    As the days draw in, and temperature drops, it will clear.

    Mine is really choked with blanket weed, but its a new pond so I'm still trying to get the right balance. You need enough plants otherwise the algae takes over. I've heard water cress is really good for taking the excess nutrients out of the water and stopping algae so have put some of that in recently.

    I think it is the same, but I bought mine from a pond plant supplier to make sure it was the right stuff (i.e. native)
