I am not sure what you are asking.

According to your levels, your tank is still mid-cycle. You don't need to add anything to the tank. Let it run its course...

You still have a long road ahead of you. Nothing you can do will make the tank "work" any faster. Yes, I know this sucks, but we all had to go through it. Heck, I am still battling with Diatoms and my tanks is now over 2 months old.

I have a cleaner crew in my tank that helps. I also scrap the glass to remove them there.

I am lucky enough not to have diatoms on the rock or sand. Only on the glass.

So what should I do? Is it bad that it's on some of my rocks and sand? What's the white and black?

Any pictures? I'm with Biggen - your tank is smack in the middle of a cycle. Let it run it's course. Once the cycle has completed, start adding a cleanup crew.

At this point, I'd say nothing. Test your levels every-other day, and hold tight until the cycle has finished.

You are going to give yourself an ulcer!!!

Seriously, though. Just be patient and wait it out. I am sure your LR is fine...
