I'm still not seeing anything definitive in the pic with the lighting. Any way you can turn the lights on full white and take another pic?

But from what I can make out it almost looks like Diatoms. I'd definitely check the Nitrates and the Phosphates. If the rock was just "sitting dry" and never cured before putting it into the tank, you're problem leaching off some nutrients that were in the old tank. I'd monitor how much you're feeding to start. Make sure everything is being eaten. Then keep up with the water changes. If you don't have any established copepods I'd recommend adding some. They help

I'd give it some time. Might just be going through a phase based on the old rock. Best thing to do is not do anything too drastic. Just keep up with regular maintenance and it will most likely go away on it's own once everything balances out.
