Diatoms are back!

I just set up my VHO's this past friday and I noticed today that the diatoms are acting up again. Any Ideas? My Phosphates are 0. Silicates????? I dont have a teat for that.
Is this normal with a lighting upgrade? are they just going to burn out again?

TIA

How often are you feeding? Hopefully every other day. If you feed too much you could be feeding the algea.
