As a side note, plants benefit from having dark/night periods much like any other living creature. I've read that having 10-14hours of light is optimum. I've had my lights on for too long at times and my plants started to "burn" the edges of the leaves started to brown and decay.
The best way to get your plants to grow is just for good spread out light so that everything gets it and very little is shaded. And, having a good quality fertilizer will promote growth.
You fish look lovely. I saw what looked like neon tetras, mine go well with my betta and they seem best of friends but be careful they can nip at his tail if they are stressed out.
