My new pond (2300G)is up and running with may be 3 to 4 Sarassa (a few inches long). When the pond was a few weeks old the water was crystal clear and then all of a sudden it turned green. PH level is 7.5 and I have a home made bio-filter.

OK, bought an API test kit and just finished. Regular pH test was 7.6 so I tried the high pH and it was approx 8.0. Ammonia is 0-0.25, a little hard to tell, nitrite is VERY high, again hard to tell, but most likely 2.0 ppm although could be 5.0.
