Run a UV sterilizer and turn down your light intensity. Green water is ammonia in the presence of too much light.
A new tank would certainly have higher ammonia. Once the tank cycles, slowly raise light intensity. I would also plant more.

buy a filter online via amazon and it clears out the green water within 3-4 days. other than that you can wait until your tank stabilizes
