If it were my tank, I'd change 75% water, dose prime accordingly, cut lights in half and lower feeding.

Me too!

A good vaccuuming is in order. I would also continue to do 20% changes everyday until the water stays clear. green water algae usually arises from too much dissolved fish waste in the water.

We appreciate your concern and willingness to help the fish.
Sounds like you may need to set up some kind of maint. schedule on your own.
If not, maybe look into adopting them out....they should'nt have to live like that.

green water is not that big of a deal bud, shouldn't take more than a week to clear up.
