It's hard to tell from the photo... Can you describe what it looks like? Is it slimy? Hairy? Does it move off the sand easily if you swish the water just above it?

It doesn't really have a texture it is kinda just dusted on there and it will come right off the sand if I swish the water

Looks like diatoms to me. They must be feeding off of silicates in your water, is your tank new or just cycled?

Diatoms will go away once the silicates go away. I have some too. I have pool filter sand so I imagine mine will take awhile to go away since PFS is a silicate sand.

Yep, diatoms. Perfectly normal in a new tank. They'll go away like she said. Tap water can keep them going.

I love them! They're easy to control if they start to get out of hand. Some people treat them like a plant and just flush or compost the ones they can't sell or give away. A little isolated forest of them looks nice in my opinion.
