its a light issue. you need so much light for cobomba, its such a demanding plant- i cant work out why it is sold to starters in the hobby.
At the bottom it looks like a pipe cleaner toward the top it looks bushy- thats a sign it wants light- just cut the bushy part plant it in the substrate eventually repeating this process you will find the bushy part becomes larger- its a pain but it is the only way you will grow it with your current setup-
also this plant is sensitive to flake food, if flake food is caught in its leaves they will rot- so net off excess food.

Has the light helped at all with the growth of the Cabomba?
