Thats diatoms and they will burn themselves out hopefully soon. They live on the silicates in your water so when they run out of food they stop.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I just did a water change, and I have slight water cloud but all my levels are spot on, corals are happy, fish are healthy etc.
