I have it in my new 20L. I believe it is a diatom. Fortunately, it doesn't really attach to the plants firmly, and you can just suck it up with a hose. or rinse it off in the sink. Remove most of it, and add more plants... Once the tank matures, these things tend to go away, plus they are a choice edible for many fish/shrimps/snails.
