I think it probably is diatoms now that I read upon them/it again. I haven't had a new tank cycle in so long... I guess the only thing now is I wonder if I should run my second bulb on the tank too since what I read so lower light conditions can cause them too. I have a second 10000K bulb that I had turned off when I saw the algae starting because I thought was causing it with too much light. But it's been off for two days and I'm still seeing more...

Maybe I need to order those snails and shrimp ASAP.... and/or get another Oto...
