Is it algae or not

I just cleaned the sides and front of my tank and the next day there were clearish, not fuzzy, lolling things on the sides and front. What could this be and why would it be there. I've had my tank set up now for only a week also.

Once your tank cycles invest in a good cleanup crew consisting with snails

it's totally normal in time they will disappear
if they get annoying just wipe them off with a cleaning magnet

I do have 6 saltwater mollies to help boost the cycling process and 7 small hermit crabs and about 16lbs of live rock.

It's probably diatoms they will pass as your tank matures.
