Need plant people help!

Ever since we moved our tanks home for winter break our dwarf lily leaves seem to be melting. They are getting alot less light right now than thy used to, would this cause their leaves to melt? My ph is high, but it's from a high level of dissolved co2 in the water. Could the change in water source be thE cause of this?

Mine melted as well. I just pinched off the dead stems/leaves and new ones have grown back. It could be a combination of the two things you listed. Trim the dead growth and see how they adjust.

Its not uncommon for plant to melt when they have a source water change, it can even happen when they are moved within the tank or moved to a different tank with the same source water...change in lights can also be a factor...as posted...pinch them off at the base or the affected leaf.
