1 x Cabomba piauhyensis
While this plant is very beautiful, it is actually not a prime choice for aquariums because it is very hard to grow. The main reason it is so hard to grow is because it required a very high level of light, that being more light than most aquariums can provide without killing everything else inside of it including fish and plants. If there is not enough light, at least 3 watts per gallon, then the plant becomes very fragile, the shoots begin to become thinner and weak, and eventually the whole plant will die. This aquatic plant also requires a lot of attention in terms of nutrients. It needs a very rich substrate that is full of various nutrients and it will also require supplements to thrive as well. The most common supplemental need of this plant is nitrate as well as phosphate. The Red Camboba also needs to be regularly fertilized with micronutrients in order to live up to its full potential. It also requires a fairly high amount of CO2 to be present in the water which means that regular CO2 injections are needed. Without any and all of these nutrients the Red Camboba is not likely to grow very big or very well, and if left for too long without any of these nutrients it will die.
