The gunk flying around the tank is most probably from inside the filter pipes, tends to happen once cleaned and flow is more powerful. Your pickup pipe and outlet pipe should be at the same end because the outlet should cause a motion that returns to the pickup. Make sure you have packed the filter properly and nothing can get past the media. I have 7 external filters running at the moment and rarely have problems, I only check them when the flow slows down. The problem with internal filters is the fact that they aren't big enough to cope with your size tank.

The gunk is like white mould that grows on the insode of the tank. Always been there since setup cant get rid of it. It just grows and flakes off then doesnt seem to reach the intake or skim pipe

unfortunately alpond range arnt the strongest filters I run 2 1200s in a 100 gallon 1 at each end of the tank they are what they are cheap canister filters ,,,,that's not to say they don't do the job ...if you want a filter to suck a golf ball through a hose pipe you need to go for an fx5 lol
note_ if you have the inlet say on the left hand side of your tank a small power head pushed low directed to the right side will push all the bottom junk towards the in let in a circular like flow with out blowing it violently around the tank

There is now smaller version of the fx6 called the FX4, wish i had got that rather than the trash can sized fx6.
