Do you use CO2?
How big is the tank, substrate type, fish load, plant biomass, dosing etc?

You can try the Excel method, I might work and with such low light, I think you are in line.
You can also add CO2 but that gets into some more involvement.

Light is fine, You need to stop the water changes, top off for evaporation only.

Also, a good substrate is a key part of a good non CO2 plant tank, onyx sand is good and most cichlids look good with it.

Some cichlids dig, hopefully yours don't.

I'd get a nice substrate, stop doing water changes, maybe if you add excel etc you can.

Generally the goal is fish waste=> plant growth for export in these tanks with little if any dosing.

Water change after big prunings, uprooting etc only.
