you should be ok. I have 45gal moderately planted and all my plants are doing well with fluorish, excel and 2x T8 6500k light. For my swords I use root tabs next to their roots. I have the same issue with my substrate but since everything is thriving, I will hold off from tearing it down. Hope that helps
