Green water

I've had a hellacious greenwater problem in one of my tanks that would
not go away.  I tried it all, eretromyacin, kyacin, water clearing
products, Magnum filters, Diatom powders and super water changes with RO
water up to 25% a day.  What finally did it was that that freeze dried
bacteria that people add to their tanks at startup.  The only time I've
heard of greenwater of this magnatude is in planted tanks. Actually I
don't think its BG algea at all but rather floating bacteria. I think
that plant may give off into or deplete from the water a chemical that
interfears with the normal establishment of an attached nitrobacteria
colony.  Anyway it is alot cheaper to try than a Magnum filter.
