Looks good. It'll look better when the sand goes down.

It's probably diatoms. I would think its to early anything else. They should go away as your cycle runs it course u can try and blow them off with a power head or a turkey baster witch I learned from carey. And do a pwc to try and get most of it out. Good luck I like your tank it makes me wanna start a nano

I went through everything with my bio cube. Diatoms, red slime, loads of hair algae. Now everything is perfect. Just make sure you keep at it and don't give up with the problems of a new tank, because the rewards after are great!

What type of water are you using?

My other advice to you would be to cover that window with something. The sunlight through the window will cause all sorts of problems.
