Remove the plant and do a 50% wc add salt 1rounded tablespoon per 5gallons introduce it over a couple of hours and slowly raise the temp to about 84 f. Make sure you have an airstone or good surface agitation. The sand stuff sounds like ick. Can you post a pic?

Make sure you dissolve the salt first in a cup like a Chinese food container (quart) and add slowly over 4-6 hours.
