Hard to tell from the pics. I'd guess cyano bacteria, diatoms or possibly even dinoflagellates. For anything besides dinos, it's the usual recommendation to lower nutrients, get more snails/clean up crew, and consider adding a macro algae to compete for nutrients. If it is dinos, consult the excellent threads here on RC for a cure. Good luck!

As many naturalists and environmentalists have suggested, we should set aside our arrogance,
our desire to conquer and control everything, and walk hand in hand with Mother Nature. -Walter Adey
