I had this same problem with my Naso Tang and adding an extra powerhead near the bottom of the tank did the trick.
Thanks for the idea, Mark. When you say to get the waste suspended and over the overflows, do you mean get the waste high enough so that it is drawn into the wet/dry via the pre-filter at the top of the tank? That's quite a distance for the powerhead to push it. Also, the puffer often poops while laying at the bottom of the tank, and a powerhead positioned that low would continuously blow sand around, right?
