Try moving the tank away from the window. The sunlight might be encouraging the algae to grow. Sunlight that comes through a window doesn't help your turtle. You need a UV lamp for the turtle.

Also try a product likd Turtle Clean. There are other similar products in pond stores. They supply bacteria that decomposes the waste, so there is no food for the algae.

Good luck!
