What you most likely have is redslime algae and a lot of newer tanks go thought this. Its really more of a bacteria than an algae. There is a product called red slime remover that kills this bacteria in your tank and most of the time it won't come back. I used it and it was awesome.

Google red slime algae and see for yourself, I'm betting by the discription and it being on the sand it's what you have...
