Need closer pictures of the individual plants... One in the far back left looks like ceratopteris though

I suspect you meant Wisteria in the back corner; there's another stem at the far right too. There are one or two crypts on the left in front of the Wisteria, and in the immediate front I think that is Hygrophila corymbosa, but I might change my mind with clearer photos.

If I am correct, the stem plants (Wisteria and Hygrophila) may or may not manage under your light. What are you using for nutrient fertilization, if anything?

The Wisteria is definite, the Hygrophila probably. The "crypts" are not, but are likely Helanthium tenellum or bolivianus, and the larger to the right might be an Echinodorus.
