Biocube 29 floating specs??

Looks like i may have these specs from the sand not being cleaned when i started. Tank is about 2 weeks and i just put a damsel in. One died but the other is ok after a day. I can see the specs on the top of the water then they get blown around from the powerhead. Any good thoughts how to get rid of the specs?

High ammonia is not good, sounds like your 'sleeping' fish may be dead, 'trates and phosphates will make their appearances Sooner or later, sounds like maybe a pocket of decay was released or something. Is this a fully cycled tank?

Not cycled yet. Was told to cycle it with fish. I cant find the fish anywhere now. The other must have died last night. Not sure if i should try pure ammonia to cycle if the fish is dead? Maybe check tomorrow? Little frustrating. Do i jus try and cup out the specs?
