I tried the usual things like water changes, changing the photoperiod, reducing
ferts., but nothing worked. I read on the Krib about a guy who used a UV
sterilizer and a water-clearing product and had great results. So, off to the
LFS to buy a UV unit. I hooked it up to a second canister and let it run for
two days. I then put in the appropriate amount of Accurel/F and watched the
tank clear before my eyes! It's definetly a quick but long-lasting fix as the
green water never came back. Plus, having the UV around for other uses such as
a parasitic infection is useful too.
