Why Is My Fish Tank Water Turning Green?

Answer

Green water in aquariums is as a result of an explosion in population of a unicellular form of algae known as, quite fittingly, green algae. It is capable of reproducing extremely quickly which leads to bursts of algae growth which may seem to come about almost overnight. It is especially common in new tanks. However, almost every tank at whichever time can be vulnerable to green water if the precise conditions are met.
