My 75 gallon tank is just about cycled. I am getting some sort of brown algae that I think are diatoms on my rock, sand, and walls. It wipes off my glass easily but is there any time of snail or type of fish I could get to eat the stuff?

Get in your tank and Turkey blast the rocks few times aweek, most likely just build up off crap in the rocks from not doing wc through the cycle.
