Tank just cycled, clean off diatoms?

So my tank has finished its cycle, Ammonia, Nitrites, Nitrates, all are at zero. Now the tank is getting diatoms on the LR, Substrate, and glass. I know that this is normal, but my question is:

Should I clean off the diatoms off of the glass now, or let them flourish until they run their course, to eventually slow down?

TY
