Diatoms confirmation or suggestions needed

Hi all,

I have a flood of brown algae that is also has hair like, fuzzy and cobweb like appearance.
I wanted to confirm if they are diatoms or something else.

Removing them manually, making more water changes, Amano shrimp and Nerite snails seems to be helping.
They are growing quickly (returning) among the carpet plants and I am uprooting cleaning and replanting. Its painful.
Wanted to double check if these are diatoms or they are something else.
