My tank is 6 months old and had the same issue a few weeks ago. I added 2 nasarius snails, a few crabs to move the sand, and changed the position of my pumps to remove dead spots, and it's almost gone. If your tank is young it's normal.

Nasarius Snails (2 or 3) + a squad of at least 8 hermits and you're in business. A goby is a good idea too! Anything that moves sand.
