Yes, Inga (she) did have that problem, and additional light corrected the problem. I have Cabomba (green version) in my display and it does well. I have CF 6700 K bulbs (approx. 1.44 WPG) on that tank.
I just picked up what was labeled "purple" Cabomba (Byron, proper genus of this species is called??) and have it in my new 75 gl. I only have 5000k bulbs (T8-approx. 1.28WPG) on that tank so it'll be interesting to see what happens with it. The lighting issues always get me confused!! So far it's doing well, knock wood!
