Wonder if I understand you correctly; you have a 50 gallon tank, the light over it is one 150 watt metal halide plus 4 Power-Glo fluorescent tubes? Do you have CO2?

If this is correct, my opinion is that you have way too much light, with or without CO2. But, having said that, just what is the extent of the green fuzz (which we assume is algae)? Can you post a photo?
