Your pond has been sitting for 3-5 months depending on your region, your beneficial bacteria although working, works at a much slower pace in the cold so the buildup of solids at the bottom of your pond has accumulated. It is very important to start your pond out right in the Spring by removing this sludge which is the nutrient food source for string algae and single cell algae (Pea Soup Algae) to thrive. This sludge also harbors bad bacteria waiting to take hold on your fish while there immune systems are compromised from the long, cold Winter.
