metricide vs green water


Any one have any luck using metricide on a green water issue? Or, how about any issues using metricide on green water?

Glutaraldehyde treatment did not work for me in eliminating green water.

I have found a 3-4 day blackout, with no peeking/feeding of fish will eliminate it very effectively. Just ensure that all sides of the aquarium are completely covered and that absolutely no light can enter.
