Most alge is triggered by sunlight if you could plant some shade trees to help shade the water may help.

I had the same trouble with our pond. I got 6 Chinese carp and put in it. They are expensive ($8) each but they do a great job of eating the moss. Harold

You might try buying some grass carp. I put six in my pond and they have kept it pretty clean. I used to have a cattail problem but not anymore. It did take a few years though. Hope this helped.
