in my experience at the petstore i work at it will happen if nitrates get to high. On feeder goldfish tanks etc.... where there is high bio load we see it. i have also heard from so sources that green is too much light and brown is too little. I think in your case i would look at nitrates. Filtering also can be issue . Just IMHO
