Hello, any ideas on what it could be, I've just sat down to plant my hc and have discovered the substrate to have a film of short soft algae all over. Any ideas on what it is and how to rid it?

My tank specs are:
60x30x30
1x 24w t5 for 6 hours
co2 via Fe 2 hours before lights goes off at the same time as the lights. Drop checker is on the yellow side of lime when lights come on and yellow when off.
substrate is ada amazonia
dosing is full ei since last wednesday.
I'd try and post a photo but it doesn't show up at all using my insufficient point and click.

I'll have to rejig the co2 before I add fish. I suspected it was diatoms as I always seem to get them. Strange that they're late this time, I always use a mature filter but still seem to get them, normally as a powder though.

Not sure what the fluff would be, I did have something similar before due to poor co2.
Although, my substrate is turning brown by the day due to all of the ditritous settling into it.
