    Sounds like you have an algae bloom. Keep doing what you are doing, but turn the lights off for the day as well. Also take the bottle of Purple Up and file it in the big round filing cabinet (garbage).

    The corals are probably quite happy at the moment as they are feasting on the phytoplankton (green water) but it if not removed/consumed in a timely mater it will die and then nothing will be happy.

    Good luck.
