Cloudy water from sand?

My 29 gallon SW FO tank has finished cycing, and was crystal clear a few days ago. I added 10 hermits on monday; the water has been somewhat "hazy" ever since. I noticed that when they move, sometimes a little sand gets washed around. This is not cool? What can I do?

The sand itself will settle down as it gets a good bactera bed on it. One thing to note is it might not be the sand but could be a bactera bloom. Check your various water levels to make sure none of them are out of wack. If you look at the tank long ways is the water a hazy white or a hazy green?
