Hmmm...what kind of sand did you use? That could be why, but I'm sure it will clear up eventually.

I first put 50 lb of natures ocean substrate .0 and it was clear after 24 hours. I then added the 30lb of natures oceans live sand.

Ok, so it has been three days since added the last 30lb of sand and my water is not getting clear. What should I do? Change water or just give it a few more days?
