Since adding Flourish to my tank for the first time almost 3 weeks ago my water has been green and cloudy- now i can barely see the back of it. Water changes do not seem to help alot. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Adding fertilizers to the water where algae is present in small numbers will cause an algae explosion. Using a UV filter will probably not help much. A diatom filter may help reduce your algae population. I recommend giving the tank as little light as possible, changing the water often, and not adding more fertilizer.
