Diatom blooms in an established tank could be due to a few reasons, any changes or additions made to the tank, a slow build up of Nitrates and Phosphates, insufficient flow, new lighting etc.

Are you topping up with RO water? If so do you know what the TDS is? Do you have any Nitrate or Phosphate readings?
