well 40 watt for a 10 gallon is fine. The plants probably died due to lack of carbon dioxide and/or lack of oxygen. If you want it medium to heavy planted, you should use a diy carbon dioxide system

not true. CO2 has to due with plant growth. If plants are dieing off look at the lighting and ferts.

They may have been non aquatic plants.
