There's your problem. Pond that small Is hard to balance. If it is shallow algae will take over. Try a shade cloth over the pond.

American flagfish eat any algae. Rosy barbs also will eat string algae.

The location it's in it only get about 2-3 hours of sun so I didn't think a shade cloth would be worth it

Are they suitable for outdoors in the uk because it is coldwater

But they are native to america. The can be in very low temps, and can adapt. They are super hardy.
