I've had diatom problems for over a year. Low light... high light, it didn't matter I still had diatoms. I finally realized that my tap water must be the culprit so I reduced my water changes, the amount of food I feed my fish, and started using a phosphate removing pad in my filter. I have seen a significant decrease in diatoms but haven't eradicated them completely.
