Do you know your other water parameters like ph, kh and gh?

You have a lower light tank at 2 watts per gallon but you should be able to grow a bunch of different things. Try looking at plantgeek.net in the plant profiles section and see if you can figure out what plants you have. That will help along with the parameters.

Without that info its a bit hard to give some advice since it can me a bunch of different things.

The only fish you have that might be a problem is the pleco and you would see bit marks on the plants. Anyway see what other info you can find on the plants you have.

I believe your substrate should be fine. It is providing some nutrients and that is the idea. pH of 7 is good. You might think about getting a gh and kh test kit or going to your local fish store with some water from your source and see if they will test it for you. Some places will do this.

Try to figure out your plants and let us know. Think of it as a puzzle and we're going to try and solve it.
