The white gravel is probably quartz and a contributing factor.

Presuming you don't mean epoxy coated white gravel, of course.

I know this is a thread about diatoms .... but

that pic looks like BBA, esp. the little tuffs at the edge. It looks just like what I have, and mine also rubs off in powder or sheets (with difficulty) but never completely. It covers plants, driftwood, gravel..... I've had BBA for months now, and it does not go away, ever!
