My tank is set up in the back similar to yours. We had to pay our lfs to come set it up because we bought it used and had no clue. My protein skimmer is built in and is in the third of five chambers, right before the trickle filter section.

Diatoms most likely. They are a wonderful little treat that every new tank gets. LOL They will burn themselves out.

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

From what I have been told, it is a sign that your tank has almost completed it's cycle. My tank feel right in line with that. As Carey said, it will go away on its own and there is no need to do anything about it.
