Transported tank white algae issues??!!

I transported my 40 gal and started with new sand and water, I put all my rocks in the tank before the sand had stopped officially settling. I now have a layer of weird white algae looking stuff covering all my rocks and sand. Any ideas what it is and what I should do about it?? Please help!!!

It's just debris clear it off with a turkey blaster ... It's from your sand settling
