Carbon won't help green water. Are you sure it's green water? Take some tank water out and put it in a white cup and see if it's tinted green. If not you could be having a bacterial bloom. For green water you can try a 3 day blackout but seriously it rarely works and the green water comes right back once the tank has light again. I heard a few people on the site talk about using this and it worked great for clearing up their green water... Green Killing Machine Internal UV Sterilizer with Power Head at PETCO
