Anacharis (Elodea Sp.)
Anacharis, a submerged pond plant, is a fast growing pond plant that competes with algae for nutrients, helping keep the water clean and clear. Use one bunch for every 2 square feet of surface area. It is not necessary to plant Anacharis, simply attach weights to the bunch of plants and they will sink to the bottom of the pond and grow towards the surface.
