I think Sir_BlackhOle is right. I always get a light case of green water when I start a tank. A diatom filter or UV will get rid of it quickly, but if the conditions are not ideal it will return. After a few weeks or even a couple of months it always goes away and then the water is crystal clear.

Be sure to be conscientious about maintenance. Dose correctly and clean the tank well before that weekly 50% water change. I find that if you do as Tom Barr says, it may take some time, but the tank eventually matures and the water is clear and the plants grow nicely.
