SW water question

Almost 4 weeks in to my first saltwater tank. 36gal bow front eshoppes psk-100H skimmer, sicce voyager pump (800gph) 36lbs live rock 20lbs live sand..........

Question is this, water for the most part is pretty clear however still have some small particle floating around, will I ever achieve that crystal clear look?

Also skimmer seems to have sucked in some particles/or sand that lay at the bottom of the skimmer?


And suggestions?

Get a media reactor and put some carbon in it that will give you clear water. Large particles settle at the bottom of my skimmer as well I take my skimmer completely apart once a month and clean it completely out.
