 The  Only  Reason  for  Hair  Algae  is  Low  CO2.  Check  the  co2  level  of  your  tank  and  spike  it  up.  And  if  you  are  looking  for  a  quick  solution,  use  Flourish  Excel.  Dose  3  times  more  than  it  written  over  the  bottle  3  times  a  week.  Within  week  all  algae  will  be  gone.  But  make  sure  you  don't  have  any  sensitive  live  stock  in  the  tank.  Cause  overdose  of  Excel  can  be  fatal.

 No.  Green  water  is  due  to  excess  ammonia  in  water.  So  keep  doing  large  water  change  and  if  possible  go  for  black  out.  Green  water  will  go  away  with  time.

 Small  correction  Very Happy  
 Green  water  is  due  to  excess  of  nitrates  &  phospates  and  huge  amount  of  lights.
 Blacking  out,  coupled  with  water  changes  and  low  feeding  can  cure  it.

 Nope.  And  Black  out  will  not  work.  Best  way  to  clear  Green  Water  is  to  make  it  run  it's  course.  If  you  do  it  this  way,  it  will  not  come  back  for  quite  some  time.

 Hike  up  the  co2  count  to  2-3  bubble  per  second  for  7  days,  use  an  OD  of  flourish  excel  if  you  have  it,  change  30-40%  water  every  day  for  this  week.  I  am  more  or  less  sure  you  will  not  have  algae  in  your  tank  on  the  8th  day.

 Nope  to  which  one  Ravi,  reason  for  green  water  or  method  to  clear  it.
 The  only  time  I  had  green  water  was  when  in  an  outside  tank  I  accidently  gave  extra  pmdd.  I  did  not  dose  ammonia,  further  with  low  stocking  level  there  was  no  ammonia  in  the  water  which  was  also  confirmed  with  tests.

 Sir....  then  don't  you  think  all  the  tanks  running  with  EI  will  have  Green  Water?  
 
 As  Ravi  Sir  Said,  there  should  not  be  any  changes  in  the  routine.  Along  with  that,  changing  big  portion  of  water  regularly  will  help  to  get  rid  of  it  faster.
