 Cabomba  does  not  do  well  with  Excel/Glut.   If  sufficient  light  does  not  reach  the  bottom  the  leaves  might  melt

 I  doubt  if  its  lighting  as  My  Anubais  planted  in  the  substrate  is  doing  well  2-3  new  leaves  a  month  it  planted  in  substrate  directly.
 
 How  much  light  in  watts  should  I  have  in  tank?  currently  i  have  6  Led  tubes   Surya  ecolight   5  w  each.  Is  this  sufficient  ?
 
 another  issues  is  my  tanks  has  a  BBA  outburst  if  I   stop  Dosing  Excel  Sad

 Hi  Aashay,
 Melting  or  dropping  of  lower  leaves  is  a  definite  sign  that  light  penetration  is  not  enough,  those  Surya  ecolight  doesn't  look  good  enough  for  plants.
 At  least  upgrade  to  better  Led  bulbs  with  good  lumen  count.  Aim  for  at  least  40000  lumens  total.

 I  think  Nidhi  meant  4000  not  40,000  :)
 
 The  best  thing  to  do  now  would  be  to  trim  the  lower  portion  and  replant  the  tops.

 Nidhi\Preeths
 
 The  Surya  tubes  box  said  6500K  Lumens  so  had  bought  those  Sad.  
 
 The  tank  is  placed  near  kitchen  so  have  to  Keep  it  covered.  I  have  2"  space  in  the  cover   the  depth  is  18"  length  is  35  "  no  option  for  Bulbs  .  
 I  can  add  tubes  or  any  DIY  solutions  ,  can  you  suggest   what  lights  to  use?  
 
 
 I  Will  trim  those  Cobamba  and  replant  them  tonight.

 Yes,  I  meant  4,000..
 6500K  is  the  light  spectrum,  not  lumens..
 If  space  is  an  issue,   then  try  to  get  higher  wattage  of  the  same  tubes..
 Where  are  you  located..?

 Water  parameters  are  not  right  IMO.  
 
 Is  your  water  from  Boring  well?  
 
 is  it  hard  water?.then  anubias  will  grow,  but  in  no  time  even  amazon  swords  will  become  black.The  soil  may  also  have  salinity.
