Does anyone grow dwarf sag well in a low tech setup with pool filter sand?

I have mine in 180g but they are directly under a 70W MH (8000K) which I hang about 2ft above the tank. Some of the dwarf sag is doing ok but some are melting away.

Should I lower the light? add more root tabs?
any help would be greatly appreciated.

Yes that would be my guess. Try root tabs or something similar first. I am growing some right now in a ten gallon with dirt/sand and about 3 inches of water under a 6000K 36 watt bulb, albeit an old bulb. It is spreading rapidly.
