The white haze may be dust from the sand or even a slight bacterial bloom. The green haze sounds odd. How long are the lights usually kept on and does the tank get hit with any natural sunlight? Also, is this tank still cycling?

Using a reactor is a great idea. It would also give you more media options that you'll probably be glad to have later on.

Does the tank get hit with any light from a window? I'm just curious.

Many people add a bit of carbon, ChemiPure or Purigen after the cycle ends to help clear up the water. The common way to check if you need it is to do the bucket test. When you do a water change you put the bucket of fresh saltwater next to the bucket of removed tank water. If the tank water looks yellowed compared to the new water you'll be able to see it clearly, side-by-side. If it's close to the same clear blue color then chemical media won't be necessary, at least for color polishing. It only works with white buckets though.
