Can't kill this greenwater ! HELP :)

If you can get your hands on a diatomaceous earth filter, such as the Vortex
Diatom D-1, it should clear up your greenwater algae very quickly.  I
borrowed one from the local LFS, the first time, but was so pleased with the
results that I bought my own.  I've never had a greenwater attack since, but
I use the filter occasionally to clear out any suspended matter and, as they
say, "polish" the water to crystal clarity.
