Sand not settling

I have a 54g corner tank w/ 2 power heads facing each other at the very top, a canister filter and surface skimmer. I have 2 chromis and a gold head sleeper for now and it looks as if the sand will not settle. It had settled during cycle but after cycle I turned on the skimmer and it pushed sand that was stored in the hose/tube and since then it has not cleared. I have tried turning off the skimmer for a few days and 1 of the power heads for another few days but have no luck. Any ideas?

Did you put the sleeper in about the same time the water got cloudy? This happened to me and had to move him to a tank with shallower/coarser sand-bed. Just a thought, may not be your problem.
