Pictures as requested. My dear husband broke out the tripod and good camera for me

I just have the ammonia, nitrate and nitrite tests, I'm planning on picking up a master kit tomorrow.
Temp: 76
Ammonia: 0
Nitrite: 0
Nitrate: 5

The stem plants in the back were nearly to the top when I trimmed them back. Sigh...

For BBradbury, I currently have a nerite snail, and I had two otos until they randomly kicked the bucket last week. Picking up two more of them tomorrow as well.

The one other thought that I had was that my tank is about 3 feet from a window. It never gets direct light, but I have lots of sky lights in my house, so there is a fair amount of ambient light. Could that be causing the issue?
