that's brand new sand, correct? if so, diatoms will collect on the new surfaces.
the salinity is low. i would slowly raise it up to about .025,

Good to know about the salinity and no the sand is not the dude at the aquarium store told me that it was best to use what was already in the tank because the tank had already been running for a year was he wrong?

silicates? na..that's not the issue, or the diatoms would be on more than the sand bed.
