Greater water flow would cause things to spit out and blow around. Clean the filter media in old tank water when doing your changes and keep the current cycle going. Again, do more frequent or larger water changes to get that ammonia down.

What type of filter are you using? I have a fluoval canister filter that kicks out a load of rubbish when it is getting near capacity, when running slowly the pressure is not enough to push it out,
If your water was clearing well on B setting all it needs is a good recharge, if you clean it out with tank water you will not disturb the ballance of the tank, change your filter medium and it should be ok once more.

Your cycle is not over, in fact it doesn't look like its started... sorry... so that can be a bacterial bloom. You need to get your ammonia down to 0, and 4 giant danios may be to much for that tank.. you should have 1-2 to start, and move up as your tank cycles.

It's bacterial slime left over from the bacterial bloom. I just had the same thing happen last week.
