    It’s hard to figure out whether a bulb is good without information on the Kelvin scale and height of tank. However, Anubis and moss are both VERY hardy plants barely need much light at all. Often your stock lights would be enough to suffice.

    At 5 cm it would deliver FOUR TIMES as much light on your plants than at 10 centimeters so do not think that is a trivial difference in the matter.

    The closer you get the light to the plant the faster it will grow, and of course with four times as much light you can certainly expect faster growth.

    This is usually a bigger factor than which light bulbs you have chosen.

    I have grown some plants 2cm per day with ordinary fluorescent light simply by keeping the light 3cm from the plants at all times.

    I've never grown hyacinth so I can't say for certain. But you will have a better chance if you get the lights closer.

    By the way I was running 130 watts of light on my 10gal experimental grow tank, and it was just the right amount of light for fast plant growth but it was too much light on the fish. They hid from it constantly.
