Water changes

I'm trying to clear up an algae issue. I've done all I need to do but I'm trying to cycle the green water out. How often can I do water changes and how much water?

Hello T...

I have very little visible algae in my fish tanks. My educated guess is, that I remove and replace most of the tank water weekly. So, most of the dissolved nutrients are removed. If you remove the nutrients, there's nothing to sustain the algae. So, it doesn't grow.
