Diatom bloom if no bubbles, dinoflagellates if bubbles/snotty. Kinda looks like both to me right now but might be immature Dino’s.

Those are not bubbles but rather sands that MP60 suck up from the sandbed. I look really close for bubble too.

It looks more like diatoms to me. Do you have any cerith snails or conchs? Try getting a few ceriths and put them on it and see if they eat it, if they do it’s diatoms if not could be something else

If I’m not mistaken TDS meters don’t read silicates. But you also could be right that the rock itself has silicates and the diatoms arejust eating them. It’ll eventually balance out

Real reef rock, those thing cause so much problem. These man made rock keep leaching stuff even over a year in a reef tank.
Check your pH.
