Red face Plants dying slowly??

Hi guys, I am still trying to solve my problem regarding lightning I have 4 bulbs 41" 38W each with reflectors, 2 Narva Oceanic Nature 60,000K and 2 Interpet Triton. The Aquarium is 47"x20"x22", is there enough light for the tank? The plants are diying slowly and few are growing i do not know that is the problem, my water parameters are PH 6.5, Gh 18, Kh 5, No2 0.1mg, No3 12.5-25mg. What do you think Guys.

What types of plants do you have? Is it possible these are new plants that are dropping emersed growth?

Edit: just computed your tank volume (47X20X22/231 = 90 gallons), you're still low on light for some species of plants.
