I've read that ammonia is one of the causes of green water. The other is too much light for too many hours.
I second this! Since we supplement Nitrate on a regular basis, we would have green water more often if, Nitrate were one of the causes. Since my tank has been established for a long time, the only time I get green water is if I get carried away uprooting to many plants at one time. It would be better to get your Nitrates below 20 ppm though.
