Hmm, does it blow away easily? Or is it easily removed by rubbing it with your finger? The pic came through fine.

lol But you didn't answer my questions. It looks like it could be cyano starting but it's hard to tell.

Easily removed when rubbed.

Then I'd say it's cyano. Coralline wouldn't just rub off. I'd begin doing extra water changes and test for phosphates.

If you don't have any corals or light loving critters, you could shorten your light schedule but removing the PO4 is gonna be your best defense. Even after you get it to 0, do a few more since no all PO4 will show up in your test.
