Waste on the sand.....

There seems to be waste on the sand, is there any types of fishes, invert or any living marine species that could clear up those waste?

fighting conches is whut I got. unless you got snails in the tank, you can use hermit crabs., but they have been known to kill snails, even when offering empty shells.

How are the ammonia levels in your tank? You recently posted your were having problems with ammonia levels in a highly overstocked tank. I would not recommend you add any living critters to your tank until that problem is resolved.
