White sand is hard to keep white. But I think trumpet snails will help quite a bit.

I'm not sure that snails would help you problem because they poop ALOT so even if they're cleaning the other stuff you'll have their poop to deal with.... also snails breed like crazy!! some snails can reproduce on their own but I'm not sure which kind...

Snails produce more waste than they will ever clean. That is because critters that eat algae have to eat a lot of it. The best cleaner of a tank is you.

I wish I could switch to black, but they don't sell it in my area and I feel that shipping cost would be prohibitive. I will look into the trumpet snails also. It has been less than a week since I've done a 25% water change and the floor of the tank already looks like that.

Is that soil on the bottom? Like a NPT?

It is aquasoil and fine sand in some. The one towards the end with bright colors was my first, a ten gallon. It had that black ecocomplete. I used to be inundated with malaysian trumpet snails. I cannot tell you how disgusting those tanks were when I finally broke them down. All from snail poop!
