What's the distance between the light fixture and your frogbit?

Now my water lettuce keeps turning yellow and melting and the leaves never grow as big as when I first got them. Also the Cabomba I just got grows tall but the leaves are not as lush. I don't know what I am doing wrong so if anyone could help me finally figure out what I am doing wrong that would be awesome. I have a dirted substrate, a t5 dual HO light with I believe 35 watts and I'm using a sponge filter. I do not dose any ferts but was reading that maybe I might need more iron. Any Ideas guys?
