That is along time to have your lights on. Prob adding to the problem. When my timers died on me and i was working 16 hour shifts at work (with an hour drive to and back) I had some major issues with that crap on my tank. Took a day off and an old credit card to get it squared away again.

That looks to be diatoms. Very common for a new tank. It will leave as fast as it came as your tank matures.
