    That's pretty minimal feeding, probably less than 1/4 cube/day. Run the lights as I suggested and see what happens

    They're probably not fireworms, they're probably bristleworms. Check to make sure. Bristleworms are scavengers and are just fine

    Growth is looking better, just let it continue growing (no cleaning quite yet)

    That's a bristleworm

    Finally....GREEN!!!

    The reason that you're not getting growth in the middle where the intensity is the highest is probably because of low feeding and large screen. But that's OK - it should eventually fill in. Just give it time. I would not increase feeding. Just let the scrubber continue to grow.

    It is important, at this point, that you are careful about how you clean the screen.

    You do not want to scrub the screen with a brush.

    You do not want to remove any green growth.

    At the most, you should only rub the screen gently. Use only the tips of your fingers. You only want to remove growth that loosens up easily.

    After you rub the screen with your fingertips, rinse it off with either 1) room temperature tap water, or 2) some water from the tank.

    Also, remember that you do not need to clean the screen every 7 days. You should only clean the screen when it looks like it needs it. That might mean letting it grow for 14 days before cleaning.

    How many days has it been since the last time you cleaned?

    That is great for 4 days! Post another video at 7 or 8 days, but don't clean it...it might not need it until day 10, or 14, or later even.
