I would not add any fertilisers containing Nitrogen
(Nitrates, Ammonium) to a pond especially a newly set
one. Algal blooms occur much more easily in a very
pond. Maybe if you get to the stage where a pond has a
plant density you might be attempted to add them but
before. I also find that Phosphates lead to Diatom
Iron and trace elments are still good.
The swordtails and Mollies eat algae. The corys don't.
couple of Rosy barbs, they help too.
Maybe some others can give you different advice but
gone through too-many algal problems myself this is
I can offer.
