Ok... first, how long has your tank been set up? What are your water parmeter? Ammonia, nitrite, nitrate... How many fish do you have? what kind of filtration?

The tank looks like it has algae growing all over the glass... maybe you should try cleaning your glass and doing a water change... how often do you currently do water changes? What are your readings of Nitrate, Ammonia, Nitrite?

That looks like green water to me; an algae bloom. Change lots of water over the next few days and cut the lights.

do you have a test kit? what sort of filter do you run? it will really help us to help you if you give us more of an idea of what your tank is like.
