You could also either get the no-reflector kit, or just don't use the reflector initialy. This will help reduce the intensity comming from the lights, and a 2x55w setup won't be as bad, especially if...

I'd just go with 3 or 4 NO 20w bulbs. I had a 55w PC over a 20g long and wasn't happy with it, too short on either end, and not as much front-back dispersion as I'd like.

Recently upgraded it to a...

Yeah, all mine do the same. I know they can do fine on the driftwood, but it seems they still love to bury their roots.

Well, you didn't mention you could only use screw in.

I had the 55w over a 20g long and personally just didn't like it. It's not long enough and just a single light would focus most of the light right under the fixture. I've since upgraded the 20 to a...

I'd suggest Eco Complete if it's available in your area. It sometimes costs a bit more, BUT, you'd only need one bag for a 10g, so it wouldn't hurt as much, compared to a 55g for example.

When I had my 6g, I put a coarse sponge on the output. This helped ease the flow into the tank quite a bit.

As for the dust, when I used flourite, I'd load the filter with some floss/poly-fill and...

If you want to use it, I'd only put it on the outside back of the tank.
