I have an aquarium outside and it's constantly filling up with algea. What can I do to keep it under control?

You could add 2 or 3 snails or algae-eating fish to the aquarium to help get rid of the algae. Controllingl the amount of light that reaches the aquarium will  help. Clean out any leftover food and change the water regularly.  Also adding live plants such as Black Molly can help keep algae under control. Clean any hard surfaces as soon as you see algae forming.
