You have diatoms. It will naturally go away. The video shows that you have a good amount of surface agitation and flow which are good and they will help fight the diatoms.
When you say that the plants roots are not in good shape what exactly are you referring to? Are the roots browning? If it’s roots browning, that will get better once the diatoms are gone.
For me manually removing as much of the brown stuff as possible, 50% water changes every 2 days seemed to help. Did not use any chemical treatment. Otos in the tank will help but it will be slower.
