Diatom algae as in brown dust algae? That stuff is one of the easiest algae to get rid of, but tedious work involved. Try making sure you have good water flow in your tank. Then meticulously clean, gravel vac, scrub, brush plants everyday! It should be gone in a week or so. It does take time to clean but you will appreciate your tank more! hope that helps.
