Probably a little background first. Decided to set up a bucket pond in the garden to attract beneficial insects to do pest control. Started to set it up early spring, didn't have much rain, and the few inches of water in the bucket started to go green. So I decided to hurry things along and filled the rest up with tap water, rushed and got some oxygenators to suck up excess nitrogen from the tap water and stuck them in with a few rocks. However it seems to be getting worse..
Any advice? Would it be a wait and see situation and risk the oxy plants getting smothered by the algae or do something with quick chemicals (if it's even possible)?
Should be a pic of it attached below
