Cool setup. The cycle probably hasn't started because you are taking out all the organic waste that is supposed to be converted into ammonia->nitrite->nitrate. I suggest turning off the skimmer, don't clean the sock for a while, and let things run. Might even want to add a shrimp or an extra source of ammonia as your LR might not be enough.

So here's a few pics of my tank. The haze still is not going away and I can't get it to look any better. I just removed my Dead/dried sea sponge and sea fans. Pics before and after

Oh oops, didn't know you already had it cycled. Nvm then Love the snowflake eel! Maybe it's the fine debri from the sand. Looks like you're using sugar-fine sand. Did you rinse it?

No it's live sand from the lfs in pre packaged 20 lb bags. I never had a problem with this tank I set up

The only thing I can think of is if the powerheads were pointed down towards the sand and stirring it up a bit, but it doesn't appear to be that way.

Correction that's a diatom filter. I've seen those things do some pretty magical things
