It shouldn't. Its because your water was cloudy, when the filter sucked up the water, the sand got stuck behind the filter pad thus it stayed inside your filter box. When the water is clear, there wouldn't be sand floating around to get stuck inside your filter

There are quite a lot of different fishes you can add to a 55g, just depends on preference. Link to compatibility chart at the end of the post.

CUC should be added before you add your fish and only after your tank is done cycling. If its still cycling, just wait. I personally don't really like snails, so the only kind I have are nassarius snails.

There are quite a few shrimps like fire shrimp, coral banded shrimp, cleaner shrimp, peppermint shrimp, etc. If you decide on the coral banded shrimp, its aggressive to other shrimps so keep that in mind. The other shrimps should be Ok with each other.

You can also add hermit crabs as part of your CUC.

i would not go with a damsel at first because it's going to be a pain trying to catch him later. clown fish are just as hardy. as long as there is no detectable ammonia or nitrite and your nitrate levels are low you can add fish and inverts.
