I started running the lights like 4 days ago and thats when it starting showing up it started out with very little an one or two rocks now its on multiple rocks not on the sand or glass just the rocks.
Too blurry for me to tell, but you are at exactly the right time for a diatom bloom. It's normal, if not expected, to have a big diatom bloom as the cycle ends. Unless there's something really unusual about your rocks or sand, I'd bet on diatoms.
