Is there a way to keep sand dust off the glass?

I'm having an issue with the "dust" from the sand in my tank clouding up the glass. Anyone have any tricks for keeping the glass from collecting the dust? I thought maybe there would be a product that would help or maybe it just takes time for the tank to settle out.

How new is the tank? If you just put the sand in recently, it will take a little time until the (dust) is filtered out.

It has been up and running about 4 weeks now. Just finished cycling about 1 week ago.

Ya just give it a lil time. Everything will settle down in a couple weeks and your sand will start to build up a biofilm which will hold it in place better.
