Probably algae. you can scrap it off the glass or vacuum it off the sand.

Could be beneficial "pods" or featherdusters. It is hard to tell with no pics. Can you scrape them off?

Generally this starts off as a very bright green color.

It will grow by its self.

BTW, how are your fish doing?

Also try not to overfeed. The white spirals which is probaby copepods and amphipods but it is showing because you are over feeeding, just a possibility.
