I posted my solution to this same problem on the APD.  I was going to get
you the date, but the only message of mine that seemed pertinent elicited a
"Page Not Found."

Anyway, what I did was to start a Vortex Diatom Filter in the tank and then
scrape the film off the glass.  I did this for three days in a row, after
which the green film has never returned.
