Pond fish inactive and all surfaces covered

Subject: Pond fish inactive and all surfaces covered

Hi all,

For the last few days my pond fish have been sat on the bottom of the pond, in the deepest part, and don't even come up for food.

I did a partial (25%) water change and cleaned the filter 2 days ago to see if that helped, it hasn't, and it has also caused a bloom of some brown algae that has settled on all surfaces.

I don't currently have any test strips and won't be able to get any until the weekend.

Has anyone seen this brown algae before? I've had the pond for nearly 3 years and it's the first time I've seen it and the first time the fish have been inactive.

Does anyone have any ideas?
