Looks like green algae bloom. Reduce lighting or of you don't have anything that needs lights. Keep them off and do some water changes. Have you tested phosphates?

A UV would definitely clear that up but you wanna figure out why it happened to begin with.

Still need to do water changes in that time. It doesn't just go away because a blanket is on the tank.

Cut the light back and wc's should clear it up.
