First pic is narrow leaf val which I tried pulling up a bit as doesn't seem to be getting new growth. Second pic is a broader leaf val which is getting new growth but it has browned off on new plant edges (might be too high glut - not sure).

How big is this tank again? A 15w T8 isn't going to be putting off a ton of light, so that very well may be it, as you suspected.

Additionally, do you happen to know your nitrate levels? It could also be a macronutrient issue, nitrate being the easiest to demonstrate.
