    An ultraviolet filter will help to control and prevent green water.

    I use this in my 45 that gets direct sunlight with great success.

    Sounds like an algae bloom. I had one and alls i did was keep the light off for 4-5 days and put it on for feeding. Try this method. Good luck,

    One thing you could do, if you have a willow tree, get a branch about 1/2-1 inch in thickness and stick the bottom in you tank. The branch uses extra nutrients and gets rid of green water
