The skimmer level needs to go down a bit. You are skimming wet, and want it a bit drier. A dark tea color would be good.

The sand will blow around till the bacteria population starts growing on the surfaces. That liitle bit will help it settle to the bottom. Give it a few days to a week or so.

Don't go DSB in that small of a space (IMO).

cyanobacteria. it's from excess nutrients. water changes while vacuuming it out is the best method of attack.

Just do you regular water changes and maintenance. Be patient and don't make all these drastic changes. Give the tank some time to mature.
