My favorite way to handle green water is a UV
sterilizer. The sunsun brand sterilizers can be bought for a relatively low amount (it will only work on algae)
A total tank blackout for 3 days is another treatment for it. Surround the tank in cardboard and but a thick blanket or something over the top to prevent any light from getting in. An air stone would probably be recommended for this. If any of the algae lives it could happen again.
Changing the filter or filter media isn't going to do anything for green water.
