Water clearity not algea

I seem to have lots of particles floating in the water. From a distance they are not noticable but up close there are a lot of things floating around. almost like dust or fine particles of sand. The tank has been set up for about 3 months, I have 3 maxi-jet 900's at 230gph each. a seaclone skimmer which is doing a fine job now that it's adjusted and a Bio-wheel 170 with no wheel, just for running GAC. I don't see any sand being disrupted but don't know how to get rid of the stuff in the water collum. I hear people talking about crystal clear water. How do I get there?
Thanks in advance,

I hope someday to be the person my dog thinks I am!

They may be micro bubbles from the skimmer or PHs. Carbon also helps polish the water.
