    Default Copper wire balls

    I was reading a novel based on Japanese gardening and found this. Copper wire made onto balls and put in ponds stops the growth of algae. Might give it a try.

    Aquatic life will die if the desolved copper in water exceeds 0.015ppm. I wouldn't recommend this approach
