I have diatoms right now. Looks kinda like what you have. Mines been set up for 2 months. I was told they would die out on their own. If your sand is new that may be your problem

I bought new sand when I set up tank. I did have a deep sand bed then I decided to take about half or more out about 6 months ago. As for powerheads I have 2 wp 40s. And I run a brs dual reactor with a es135 reef dynamics skimmer and filter socks in my sump. I also use rodi water. For lights I have 3 bridge lux led fixtures.
With my rodi I just replaced the filters and di resin. I flushed it for 10 mins. The tds say 35 ppm in 0 out. But when the water comes out of the drinking part its cloudy.
