    Ok remove the cloth, keep the same hours, and don't clean it yet.

    Ok good. Now since the growth is where the light is, increase light to 22 hours. After a week, brush clean.

    Yes go ahead. Have you ever used any ChemiClean?

    It removes cyano, which is bacteria. If you have not tried it, it might be a good experiment to see if removing certain bacteria will enable more scrubber growth.
