Hi Swanky...just to say welcome...I'll leave the question to the experts...they'll soon give you some good advice!

if you can bear to leave it alone it will eventually clear. constantly changing the water reintroduces nutrients that algae feed on.
or you may be able to put a uv bulb [inline] in the filter system. this will kill the algae for you.
