Why is my freshwater aquarium water greenish and cloudy?

You might have a case of alage. It is easy to get rid of though. You can go and buy alage eating aquarium snails to eat the alage. Also, you can buy a (I believe they are called) magnetic scrub. It can clean alage off of your tank without getting your hands wet because it uses a magnet to manuver the rough pad while you are holding the other part of the pad. Choose an aquarium snail that's shell looks healthy(no cracks, or discoloring). Otocinclus fish, and coryadoras are helpful, too!
