Its like a brown filamentous algae on my glass, near dust like. Depending on how thick it is, comes off like dust.

This also appeared a week after using chemi-clean. No trace of cyano anywhere.

Snails are all over it too
+1 diatoms, I had them for about 8 weeks, for the first few weeks they were harboring some dinos. I let the green micro algae grow on the glass for 4 or 5 days at a time to out compete them.
IMO they are a very good sign that you are winning the battle.
