You're speaking of the sump's return flow? Is it parallel to the water surface, just below the top? Too big a pump maybe?

If the tank is new and the sand is new then there will be somedegree of blowing until your bactera coloney can get started. In a few weeks it will almost be like a challenge to get a sand storm up in your tank.
