Titch sounds like algae. A picture would help. Algae loves phosphate which you can check with a test kit. It also loves too much light. You could try cutting the lighting period by an hour or 2. If you are using fake plastic plants, replace them with real aquatic plants as they will out compete the algae.
You could also get something that will eat the algae. Nerite snails are very effective but won't touch some types of algae.
If you buy an algae eating fish just check it's size when fully grown, most algae eaters get very big. And no they don't grow to suit the size of the tank, that is a very old and very wrong myth.
