I tried the following as suggested by different people on the list and it
worked. My 160 gal tank was plagued by green water for two months. I did a
50% water change daily for 10 days (difficult if you don't use water
straight from tap) and added polyester batting (from Craft Supplies) to my
internal Eheim sponge filter. My tank have since been crystal clear (a
month now). 

I had another 25gal tank also with green water. Used polyester batting
without changing water daily end it's also clear now though It took a while

Try it.
