our 55 is green

we have a 55 gal with a couple sharks and 2 silver dollars in it. the tank has turned so green you can't see through it. when we first set up our 30 it went through a stage where it was really green but it cleared up on it's own. our 55 is filtered with a canister filter and only has a couple sticks of bamboo in it no other plants. it isn't in direct sunlight either. we are going to do a water change tonight but does anyone have any ideas about causes? it doesn't seem to be bothering my fish either.

Its probably just algae. What is the temp and how long do you leave your light on? Im not an expert though but those are the first two things I thought of.
