If these are truly diatoms, then this is common for newly set up tanks and they will usually go away with time (three to four weeks), assuming that lighting is not too strong or left on for too long.You can take clean paper towel and fold it into fourths and wipe down the glass and not over feed the tank, and or fishes.
