Sounds like cyano to me which is a bacteria. You have to control your nutrients in order for it to go away. Cerith snails help clean it up but you can siphon most of it out. Decrease feedings,reduce photoperiod, skim harder, increase flow in areas that are lackluster on flow and double you water changes weekly.

thanks for the help guys, i have heard that the cerith snails do a good job of taking care of it and will probably stock up on some of them, i have to get some more cleaners in there anyway.
