Algae growth can appear as "green water" blooms, filamentous algae on plants, floating algae mats and algae growth as waterfalls.
Pond owners' number one problem has been algae of various types. Previously all algaecides were non-selective and killed or damaged most plants in the pond along with the algae. Pondcare Algaefix is our number 1 seller by far. It effectively controls many types of green or green water algae, string or hair algae and blanket weed in ponds that contain live plants. Controls existing algae and helps resolve additional algae blooms. Keeps ornamental ponds and water gardens clean & clear.
API Pondcare Algaefix can be used in ponds with plants! It is not a bacterial product but an EPA registered herbicide control.
API Pondcare Algaefix Features at a Glance
If high levels of algae exist, be prepared to siphon out dead filamentous algae and to clean your filter more often during the process of cleaning up an algae bloom. It is also highly recommended that you combine Pondcare Algaefix with Liquid EcoFix to quickly break down the accumulated dead algae and debris that results from algae die-off. High quantities of dead algae can be damaging if not removed and broken down quickly to prevent toxic ammonia build-up.
To use: Add 1 teaspoonful for every 50 gallons of pond/fountain water or 1/2 cup for every 1,200 gallons. Thoroughly mix into pond/fountain by adding near the pump outflow, waterfall, or aeration device. Can be mixed in a bucket of pond/fountain water and dispersed evenly around the pond/fountain. Repeat application every 3 days until algae is controlled.

Warm Weather Caution: Before using PondCare Algaefix, make certain that the pond has vigorous aeration, i.e., a fountain, waterfall, or aeration device to avoid fish loss due to low oxygen levels. When algae is controlled and removed by the filter or settles to the bottom of the pond, the oxygen level may drop to harmful levels if adequate aearation is not provided. Therefore, when using PondCare Algaefix during warm weather and high water temperatures, vigorous, 24 hour aeration is required. Do not shut off pond pumps and aeration devices at night.
API Pond Ecofix Sludge Destroyer is an all natural formula containing highly concentrated beneficial bacteria that break down and consume organic waste and pond sludge, reducing pond maintenance and helping to keep your water crystal clear.
EcoFix can be added any time during the pond season. However, for best results EcoFix treatments should begin in the spring when the water warms up and the fish begin to feed. The bacteria in EcoFix will immediately begin working throughout the entire pond. Regular use of EcoFix will result in healthy clear water.
Ecofix is non-staining and non-foaming. Can be used in ponds containing salt and with UV sterilizers. Can be used in fountains. Will not hurt wildlife. Safe with plants.
8 oz treats 2000 US gallons. 64 oz treats 16,000 gallons. One gallon treats 32,000 US gallons.
