I am not an expert but I would say that you're considered low light with those lights. For low light, I think you are ring heavy handed with your ferts, and just adding more and more fert won't make plants grow, you just have to be patient. How many hours are you running your lights for? Also, DIY co2 leads to inconsistent co2 levels which creates conditions algae thrive in. You may want to stop that and dose excel for a carbon source, and it also helps control algae. I don't know what you could do about the ammonia besides water changes or maybe adding one of the "Instant cycle" products would help.
