Get some hermits, and emerald crabs. They'll help. Or get a sand sifting goby, he'll clean that right up.

I don't always build a reef, but when I do I take my time. Stay patient my friends.

Building a reef is like going back in time and being 5 years old at Christmas!

That look like algae, get some hermits... You can manually stirr your substrate to help...
