I have on my 75g planted tank 2-48" 2 bulb coral life t5 fixtures,one has 2 6500k bulbs& the other 2 10,000k bulbs...is this to much light for ferns(windolov,java),java moss,anubias& amazon swords? Have seen minimal growth in all plants,I use flourish comp& seachem root tabs...I also run my photoperiod for 9 hrs a day&apply liquid fert every other day at 7 ml...

If I'm correct, that's 4-48" bulbs. Does seem a little high but monitor ur tank. Algae will tell ur next move. If u add co2, you'd be ok, IMO.
