"Tetra Pond Algae Control"Chris of opp, AL

This product took most of the algae out but it left a sheen on top of the water. The sheen went away after running the pump for 3 days straight. ***Response From The Pond Guy - The sheen could be pollen on the surface which can be broken up when placing your hand in the water or using a pond net.
