i had this same problem with green water. i got rid of it by using a timer on my lights. i would leave the lights on for 4 hours at a time followed by a 1 hour black out period then another 4 followed again by another 1 hour black out period then 4hours then lights out till the next day. this seems to kill green water with in two weeks time with regular water changes you can probably do it faster if you do a daily water change. or if you have daphia you can use thoughs

the bad thing is i noticed a ammonia spikes. im guessing from the agae dying
