Can't wait to see the pictures -- and it's great to see an example that you don't have to spend a fortune to create a tank that will, I'm sure, look good and be much appreciated!

It looks like BGA -- blue-green algae -- to me. Do a search for BGA and you'll find lots of ideas for solving the problem. Other people may have other ideas about what it might be, too.
