need more more circulation "ideas"

Hi guys,
I have 2 500gph power heads circulating water but apparently its not enough , I have a major cayno issue in the front section of my tank any ideas on how I can add more current along the front floor of tank ,
you think if I add a cyclone power head on the center rear of tank pointed down towards the front will solve the lower current issue, as you can see from the picture the cayno looks nasty (wish picture was a little better)
my sand was white now it has a rusty ting

I'm working on adding a clean up crew this week
I also had a Bristol worm outbreak during the end of cycling but I think I got that under control fast I made a few traps out of baby food jars caught thousands of those little buggers in a little over a week , almost thought I was doomed , I still have some but it seems there more under control
think the CUC should help thin out the rest , and as soon as they settle in I'll add a wrasse in a few weeks.

If you still in a cycle, no need to do anything as the cyano and diatoms will go away by themselves. The bristleworms will take care of themselves also, if there is no food for them to forage they will die out.
Cyano is red, diatoms are brown, and form the pics it looks like a Diatom bloom, no worries.
