 Hi,
 
 This  is  my  first  planted  tank...  I  started  in  August.
 
 Just  15  days  back  It  was  all  fine  ...  then  it  got  all  cloudy  with  a  greenish  effect,
 
 The  water  is  ABSOLUTELY  clean....  in  the  sense...  have  changed  it  regularly...  
 
 The  fishes  are  basic  guppies  (8-10)
 
 Tank  size  lxbxh  40x16x24  inches
 
 N0  fertilizers  ...  basic  DIY  CO2  since  August  2011.
 
 Lighting  Approx  2  watts  per  gallon  (I  have  basic  plants  and  they  have  grown  well  in  this  relatively  low  lighting)
 
 
 
 I  even  tired  blacking  out  the  tank  for  2  days  ..  nothing  happenend.
 
 
 SOMEONE  PLEASE  SUGGEST  A  WAY  OUT.

 Does  sunlight  is  falling  into  the  tank?
 
 An  UV  filter  can  help  in  clearing  the  green  water.

 Hi  Shelly,
 
 Thanks..  
 
 yes  I  forgot  to  mention,,,  the  tank  is  on  my  window..  with  LATE  AFTERNOON  sunlight  abount  3pm  or  so.
 
 But  then  ..  why  did  it  not  get  cloudy  all  these  months?
 
 For  UV  protection...  anything  to  block  out  the  SUN  light??  cardboard  /  chartpaper  sheets  will  do??
 
 Will  try  the  above  and  revert.

 Yes  a  UV  filter  can  clear  Green  water  and  do  use  a  Thermocol  or  cardboard  to  block  direct  sunlight  getting  in  to  the  tank  as  this  will  induce  algae  growth.

 +1   Thumb Up   A  UV  filter  will  help  in  your  case.  Anyways  don't  forget  regular  water  changes  in  your  tank.

 I  faced  the  same  problem  while  using  diy  co2.Your  tank  is  suffering  from  algae  bloom.Frequent  water  changes  might  help.

 Thanks  people...
 
 Have  currently  covered  the  back  glass  to  prevent  sunlight.
 
 However  for  the  sake  of  the  plants  ..  the  tank  lights  are  ON.
 
 
 Will  revert  once  the  "undesired  greenery"  dissappears.
 
 cheers

 Water  changes  will  not  help  in  Green  water  algae  bloom.  More  often  than  not  it  brings  new  nutrients  for  algae  to  feed  on.
 Perform  a  4  day  total  black  out  on  your  tank,  do  not  open  it  even  for  feeding.
 Do  a  large  water  change  after  4  days  60-70%,  it  should  solve  the  problem.
 You  might  have  disturbed  substrate  and  ammonia,  nitrates  might  have  come  into  water  column.
 This  amount  of  sunlight  should  not  cause  problems.
 My  planted  tanks  used  to  have  sunlight  falling  for  about  4-5  hrs,  there  was  no  problem.
