Is the tank newish? Mine kicks up sand alot too, but as the tank ages, the grains will become covered in bacteria and should settle down quickly. I don't know what type of filtration you are using, but I have an overflow and sump and use a micron-filter bag which caught most of the really fine grain particles.

Now when he kicks up a storm, you'll just see the grains quickly fall back to the bottom within a minute or so.

You should have decent growth on the grains by now. I think what really helped me is having the micron filter sock to remove the really tiny grains that got stirred up.

The HOB filter will eventually remove these finer particles if you are using the floss media, but it'll take longer.
