How can I control excess waste that feeds the algae?
There is only one bit of advice for this problem: stop feeding your fish so much! Over feeding of fish is probably the most common way water turns green. Also, remove dead or dying foliage from plants in and around the pond before they settle to the bottom. Decomposing plant matter feeds algae, causing green water.
