Ok I have been through exactly the same thing as you are going through right now! It sucks and nothing seems to work at all. I even did a 100% water change out of desperation and it came back in a couple of days. This happened about 8 years ago and my solution was to use a diatom filter for 24 hours and it was gone for good. I don't know if you can still get diatom filters, but I am sure you can get the diatom powder and use a magnum hang on back type filter to do the same job. I think my LFS has a loaner for emergencies such as this. Check with yours and they may be able to help you. I would love to know what caused it in the first place though

a UV sterilizer will get rid of all of that green water in 3 or 4 days.
