My tank has a greenish tint, I scrub when add water when it is low. Then every 2 weeks I scrub, and syphon and replace the water.what do I need to be doing differently?

I dont know enough about your tank to help figure out why your water is green.

Try using carbon is one solution.

Someone chime in and inquire more please.

Kind Regards,

More info is definitely needed. What are your nitrate and phosphate readings? How long has the tank been set up? D you have a sump? Do you have a skimmer?
Current tank 260g FOWLR.
