Filamentous Algae in garden fish ponds, how to control or eliminate it?
I have an ultra violet lamp on my filter that supposedly kills one cell algae and bacteria. BUT, now I have a problem with long green filamentous algae growing on every surface, even water lilly stems, new leaves, pump tubing, everywhere. It will smother the fine leafed potted plants soon.
Can you recommend any solutions from personal experience?

Here is another good website, Trevor!
Thank you, Trevor.
ALAIN..how do you add ozone? I already have a UV lamp to kill one celled algae. I will add salt and disrupt the surface of water to reduce sunlight penetration.
There are no good answers here.
