what are your plans for the tank. I suspect that with a low fish load your rock and sand are OK now, for reference I think another 55w would put you at min for shrooms, polyps(stars and such) tho 3x55w would put you in good shape for most soft coral and so called Large Polyp Stony corals, anchor,hammer, bubble, frogspawn, etc
I would wean the tank off the Bio Wheel

How old is your tank? Is it finished with it's cycle?
I too had a bio-wheel in my eclipse, I merely puuled it out. My caulerpa came out at about the same time.
I proceeded to upgrade my lights, and things are doing much nicer.
