Purple Cabomba, Cabomba pulcherrima, is a tough plant that has discovered its way into various planted aquariums for its entirely purple tones.
Cabomba has the ability to thrive in a wide variety of water conditions. The fast growth of Cabomba also draws a number of aquarists to help keep nutrient levels and possible algae blooms under control. Found from the regions of Central to South Americas, Cabomba reproduces via cuttings. Flowers and seeds are also employed for reproduction at times by Cabomba. This lush plant will make a great backdrop in your aquarium. Several bunches are recommended for initial plantings, with individual plants being grouped closely.
