Looks like some type of brown algae? I think that is cause by leaving the light on too much?
 

Paradise fish

It's called diatoms. Caused by high levels of silicates and nutrients in the water. Common in new tanks. It'll eventually go away with time and water changes as you remove the nutrients in the water.
