phosphates,silicates and low light all contribute,
I got seachems phosguard and put it in my HOB,
I found a slight difference in amounts of diatoms,but in my case didnt eliminate the problem,
I changed substrate(silicate based P.F.S.)with caribsea white cichlid mix,increased lighting intensity and duration and put phosphate removing pads in my HOB-no more diatoms-even if the glass lids are dirty they will deminish light intensity which in my case couldnt be cleaned,so I ended up replacing those as well,hope this helps you
