Green Water

Been reading about the problems of green water, just wandering what other members are doing to cure it. like what filters if any are being used? or any water additive being used ......

I am also curious about this. I have an RES with a couple platys in a 55g and I'm running a Rena XP3 and Wisper 30i with no luck. Both have carbon in them. My RES's 125g with 30g sump will be ready this week but I don't want to run into the same problem. I'm hoping upping the filter media and carbon will take care of it. If not, I may try an extra UV sterilizer I have.
