i have it also, i leave mine alone and only clean if it seeps above the sand. i know it is worse for you since you have 4 inches with 3 inches of visible sand, but try and fight the urge to clean it often

I had the same problem this is gona sound crazy but try moving the light back some so it's not so bright on the front of the tank Carey i know you have that monster 12 bulb so it may not work for you Maybee a small shim under the back legs to aim the light to the back?
