What I would do in this situation is do a pretty big water change. Not sure if chemicals would help get rid of the green.

If it's green algae it may be due to overfeeding, too much nutrients in water, or not enough water changes. I'd prefer probably 30% to take away as much phosphates out.

Are you running any carbon or chemipure? That helps to clear the water.

The carbon isn't running through your filter? So you're not using it, or you have it in a fuge or somewhere else? If you're not using it, and it's still good, I would put it in the filter. Carbon removes odor, impurities and clears the water up.
