Algae is a plant that can be microscopic in size or as big as seaweed. It’s usually green, brown, or red in color. Algae easily adapt to its environment, meaning it can exist in any sort of water, even waste municipal water. Algae is an autotroph and grow through photosynthesis, meaning that it turns sunlight and CO2 into food to make more algae!
What’s this mean for your pond though?
