2 week old seedling

First grow, possibly overwatered 2 week old seedling, or too much nitrogen in soil

Hey all. These are photo’s (mazar). They are just under 2 weeks old since germinating. The soil is miracle grow potting mix. I am using a 225 measured from wall HLG 225 Elite LED. Up until 2 days ago the plants would have their leaves pointing upwards towards the light and looked generally healthy. I was only using a small amount of water like just dripping it on the soil with my hand, probably only 25 to 50 ml at a time once every couple days. I thought that maybe they could use more water, so I decided about 5 days ago to give them 1/2 cup of water each. The PH of the water is 7.1. I watered another 1/2 cup 2 days ago, then they started appearing more and more sickly and droopy. I am assuming the issue is overwatering and have backed off now. The humidity dropped the last few days outside to around 30% (abnormally low for where I live and won’t be back up for a couple more days). The temperature is about 74 by the plants. The light is about 28″ above the plants.

The leaves appear to have possibly gotten too dark green? The photo where they are smaller is right before I started giving them the extra water. I put the other plant by them to try to help raise the humidity along. Thanks for any advice.
