That "Cinnamon looking stuff" that you guys are calling diatoms, well, I thought it was dust from adding the new eco-complete. So, now that I know that is not what it is, am I supposed to remove it or doesn't it matter? What is the most appropriate way to get rid of that stuff? It appears on the glass too, right?

Brown diatoms that appear as the "cinnamon looking stuff" are fairly common when a newly set-up tank is present. I had the same thing happen to me in my 55G when I converted it a planted tank. You can rub the diatoms off of the leaves and pick them up during a weekly water change. I also wiped the inside of my glass free of them as well.

It took about a month, but eventually they've disappeared.
