Plants! You need some plants in your pond that can compete with the algae for the nutrients in the water. The turtle will probably nibble on them so don\'t buy anything too expensive or anything that you really cherish, but some hyacinths would be a good place to start.

And no, controllers won\'t hurt turtles

You can even put them in your bath :)
