Does it look like hair, or just like a rusty brown coating over all the rocks?

It is probably just a diatom bloom. It should go away in a couple days, maybe a week.

It is rusty looking. It is actually a good sign; as a tank matures, there is a small diatom cycle.

What if it's not diatome, any other suggestions?

Can you get any "up close" pictures of the algae? We'll get a consensus.
