It is possibly diatoms.

It will go away usually over time. They like silica very common when setting up a new tank.

If you think that it is diatoms, then you can try Phosguard. It will bind silicates.

Favorite tank right now - 12G Edge nano fish

New to FW fish? First tank in a long time or EVER??? Need some info on keeping fish?
