That LED is far too close to the tops.  You're going to bleach your little seedlings.  Try to keep them 45-60cm away from the plants.  I think you misunderstood what you were advised earlier regarding light distance.  The CFL is fine to have where it is but NOT the LED.

Can't say for sure without knowing anything about you light.  I usually keep LEDs at least 2 feet from the plants in the early stages and bring them down to 14-18 inches for flowering. But it depends on the output of the unit.

Does the unit have veg/bloom switches or is it just on/off?

They're probably cold mate.  You said your temps are at 21C.  I presume you took this measurement during the day.  Imagine what they're like at night when we're still seeing night temps of 7-10C throughout the country.  Keep them warm day and night.

Then that's your answer.  Root temps are probably dropping well below what they're supposed to be during the night.  This will have slowed growth substantially.  Try to keep root temps between 20 & 22C at all times.
