Hello all, I'm fairly new to the hobby and love. I purchased a kit tank and didn't bother to look at the light size or strength beforehand. It has 9 LED lights under the hood. It is an aqueon 13 gallon http://www.aqueonproducts.com/products/13-led-widescreen-aquarium-kit.htm

I have a hygrophilia compact, Brazilian sowed a fern ?? And anacharis in there. I'm wondering how well will they thrive? I believe the anacharis bottom leaves are browning and appear transparent. Is that because the light? The top ones look fairly nice. Should I consider my lights low or medium as far as getting new plants in the future? Thanks

Low
and "melting" can have multiple causes..I don't have anacharis but I hear it doesn't like it too hot...
