If it's fuzzy and slimy that's not coralline, that's cyanobacteria. I don't know of many stories where coralline grows on sand.

What are your water parameters? That's the best way to see if you're cycle is done, really the only definitive way IMO

More likely cyano...most certainly actually. Not something you want to have.

Turn off your lights for 3 to 4 days (I don't think that you have any corals or inver) try to buy some snails (turbo if you have the chance) they will take care of that.
When you are cycling your tank you are not suppose to turn your lights.
