I just used the willow method a few weeks ago, worked like a charm(coupled with better mechanical filtration with polyester stuffed in filter). Water is now unbelievably clear. I actually upgraded my lighting to very high levels during my willow treatment, did not make it worse.

My willow branches(very thin new growth from my backyard pond) did not do anyting during the first week, just dropped the emersed grown leaves. But they started to grow roots like crazy after the first week and the water cleared up within a week.
