I have Black Fin Tetra, Harlequin Rasbora, and Emerald Catfish in my 29g. The water is decently stained with Tannin from the large malaysian wood I have (clears a bit after water change but comes out pretty red/brown at the end of the week (although slowly clearing up as I assume the Tannin's fully leach from the wood). Anyways, yes, tetra's and Cory's IMO love the murky, still, shaded water. Again, you should be fine. Didn't mean to scare you with the "wow" it will clear pretty quick once you get the filter on there and shouldn't pose any harm to your fish so it's mostly just cosmetic to you. I wouldn't pull it out and re-rinse it at this point. As byron posted it very well could be a bacterial bloom. Just do a few large water changes, let the temp stabilize and move it all over :) You'll probably want to rinse your filter pad/cartridge/floss/whatever pretty regularly as it dissipates though.
